Fodor's Review

At the entry of this super-casual, oceanfront diner, menus printed on the giant bongos tell the story. Offering great deals on a plethora of breakfast, lunch, and dinner items, the open-air restaurant bakes its own breads, cinnamon rolls, desserts, pizza crust, and hamburger buns on-site. Regulars flock here for the delicious homemade breakfast biscuits. Fresh fish from local fishermen appears in seafood pasta, salads, appetizers, and catch of the day choices. Breakfast begins at 6:30 am, earlier than any other place in downtown Kailua-Kona.
