Hanalei Gourmet

Cafe in Hanalei

At this lively sit-down spot, the best bets are huge sandwiches of house-baked bread. Meals – creatively skipping from Asian-style crab cakes to grilled-pork tenderloin – are tasty and unpretentious, even if more mainstream American than local. Twice-weekly musical acts and happy hour (3:30pm to 5:30pm daily) are incentive enough to belly up to this bar.
