No complaints here. My food was fresh and delicious and they make a good coffee to. I ended up loving my dinner so much, I ordered a second one for lunch the next day. I wish I lived closet so I could go more often! The atmosphere is great here as well

Simple and delicious food - great local fish. Make reservations or get there early, the place is well known by locals and pretty crowded. Good place to go in Kailua.

One of my favorite establishments located on the east side of Oahu or as known to all Windward Side is nestled in Kailua town this cafe that offers all homegrown ingredients freshly made !!!! I treated myself one day to a beautiful dinner of freshly grown brussel sprouts seasoned delicatably with seasoning that makes your mouth smile on its own to the craftly shaped salmon patties ... I could go on and on but to experience what they offer is a must be there. To simple sandwiches to delightful cafe and teas plus tasteful rich desserts this place located right upon entering Kailua on your left hand side the small established decorated in green. On certain dates they have free wine tasting to bring all wine lovers around to see what they offer from their vendors. So when you make your way into Kailua swong by and enjoy what Kalapawai has to offer!!!

From the outside, it doesn't look like a restaurant. But once you walk in, it's actually a really nice cozy place. There is a small outside terrace area in the back, which can be a little romantic as they have string lights on at nighttime. But it's really close to the sidewalk and street, so you'll hear people and cars passing by. The food is really good, using fresh local ingredients. The dishes look visually appealing, as they pay attention to plating as well as the quality and taste of the food. Definitely a good place for any meal of the day. Don't let the green house exterior fool you, walk in and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

If you don’t live here you may get confused with this location which is called KALAPAWAI CAFÉ & DELI. There are two Locations for Kalapawai in Kailua…The Café & Deli location is away from the beach and closer to the center of town. It serves a sit down Breakfast-Dinner…and I have to say…It’s DAMN GOOD!

The Kalapawai Market is located right in front of Kailua Beach and is more of a Convenient store that sells many things including some of the best sandwiches at the Deli area to the back of the Market.

The Cafe & Deli in Town has some of the best sandwiches, salads and meals I have had in Kailua. It's one of my favorite places to stop no matter what time of day before or after I hit the beaches.

NOTE: Don't come here when it's busy...in a nut shell...it's a god damn mad house and there is a good chance you won't get the service you expect. For me I come here either in the morning or for lunch. I only came here for dinner once and it was a MESS!
