Gill's Lanai

Cafe in Kapaʻau

With its umbrella-shaded patio and tiny kitchen, this avocado-colored roadside cafe offers a beach vibe and unfairly good food, given Kapaʻau's small size. Favorites include fish tacos, fish and chips, savory sandwiches, bowls of ahi poke (cubed, marinated raw fish) and veg quesadillas. Fair warning: the seating area is small and this little place gets packed for lunch.
