Kilauea Bakery & Pau Hana Pizza

Reviewed By sabers86 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

If going to the famous Kilauea Lighthouse, it is a good place to stop to get some bakery, snacks, or even a pizza. We had a coke and some good bakery since we weren't really hungry. They also have some veggie selection. They also serve a medium size gluten free pizza. Salads, sandwiches are also available. Prices seemed a little higher.

It looks better than it is. Perfectly situated near the Kauai Lighthouse, I’m certain they entrap a good number of hungry tourists. We were certainly taken in.

Ambiance is nice. Service is okay - friendly but not very attentive. Two chicken Caesar salads and one burger later plus two adult beverages, and we walked out with a hundred dollar check. Really overpriced for the quality.

Not a place we can recommend. Sorry. We wanted to like it, but it is just waaaaay overpriced.

Shave Ice Tege Tege

It's a pleasure to watch each serving being made, as a work of art. Remarkable flavors -- you can taste the fruit. I particularly liked the two seasonal flavors: passion fruit honey, and raspberry. Would have come back more times if they had been open

This is a must stop location when on the north shore! I had the Ahi Poke Salad (raw) and my wife had the Al Burrito with Ahi. Some of the best fresh food and fish I’ve had and my wife couldn’t stop raving about the Ahi Burrito which was a mix of Mexican and fresh Ahi! Please check this place out!!!

Nice place for great wines by the glass; we also found the food to be excellent; the roasted beet salad and Greek salad were both very good. They make nice pizzas too we tried the salami, mushroom and olive - excellent flat bread crust. I enjoyed the Saldo Zin. Close to Princeville and a nice option for casual dinner.

Hanalei Bread

Reviewed By Madebes - Naples, Florida

You can tell by the line for coffee that this bakery has the best in Hanalei! Don't let the line scare you - it moves fairly fast. And after all, you are in Hanalei - time to relax.
We were staying in a rental house, so we bought bread here as well and you can also buy the coffee to take home. Excellent green juices.
Favorite was the brekkie sandwich, with a poached egg, cheese and bacon - you can add an extra egg. The bread is like a brioche so nice and light. Baked goods are also excellent - had a delicious croissant.
Best latte on the island in my opinion. Stopped back for lunch on our last day. The Turkey BLT was superb! Served on toasted sour dough bread - it was huge! You could actually share this for two. Lots of choices - including pizza. There are not a lot of restaurants open for lunch in Hanalei (mostly dinner) - so this was a great find. The kitchen will be closed at 3:00 pm starting 03/18.

No adventure on Kauai is capable of doing without fueling up with Kauai Juice first!! The nut milks are substantial and filling, while also creamy and delicious!! Plus the Blood Transfusion really gave me a lot of energy!! Thanks guys!! Actually it was some super awesome girls that were working at the stores.

Julio's Beach Burritos

Reviewed By djp1955 - Oregon, Wisconsin

Just by chance we happened upon this rolling establishment in between visiting the lighthouse and snorkeling. We were famished and they certainly filled an empty hole. Outstanding is the best description that comes to mind. My Chile Colorado bowl was to die for. My wife had a beef burrito that was equally impressive! I hate writing reviews but I told the couple in command of the kitchen that I would gladly write one for them. Very nice people who serve excellent food and portion sizes that were phenomenal!
Please check them out!!!

Banana Joe's

Reviewed By Kip F - Sacramento, California

The prices haven't changed for the smoothies or the frosties. My spouse ordered the Pineapple alone, while I had the Banana and Pineapple. Again, enjoyed them for the guilt free, healthy snack they are, and walked out a satisfied customer. The cashier was not very friendly, which I remember from last time, but the man who made our order was.
