Since our humble beginnings selling ice cream out of a tiny storefront in sleepy Hanapepe Town, to our other retail locations, Lappert's Hawaii has been indulging the Islands' sweet tooth for over two decades. And though our business has grown, our principles remain the same -- top quality, premium products served with the Aloha Spirit.
No visit to Kaua'i is complete without having a cone or bowl of Lappert's wonderful ice cream. They feature a variety of island-themed flavors, srved in delicious, crisp waffle cones. It's no wonder that there is often a full parking lot for their walk-up stand in Hanapepe. As an added incentive (as if you really need one), after ten cones or bowls, the next one is free.

Went for breakfast and was not disappointed. Had machaca and eggs with refried beans and rice. Excellent, and so was the service! Been open only a little over a month. Going there for Happy Hour which has some of the best prices around the area. My wife had Huevos Rancheros which she really enjoyed too!

Nice little outlet with very decent espresso (macchiatos) from a La Marzocco machine. Had a granola fruit yoghurt bowl too, which was very good. They have a little backyard surrounded by little art galleries. Friendly staff Worth it

Organic artisan bakery.
Great little bakery with delicious sandwiches served beautifully. Open faced prosciutto with shredded cheese, arugula and balsamic was delicious. Also had the grilled prosciutto with brie. Turkey sandwich was excellent - fresh Turkey (not deli meat) with a pesto mayo and dijon. Best of all was cinnamon danish with macadamia nuts!!

Stopped by here during the Art Walk. We had tasted their soup elsewhere and really liked it so it was a no brainer to try their restaurant. Everything we had was very good and we liked that we could go down the street, pick up our own wine or beer and bring it back with no corkage fee.

It was a hot afternoon and the true Hawaiian hand shaped shaved ice hit the spot. We had 3 Ice with 3 different flavors each some were good and others not so good when mixed during the "slush" phase. Suggested or standard combinations, would have been welcome. I thought it was expensive given the fact that "premium" fruit or other kinds of Asian toppings (red bean) other than Li Hing Mui weren't available.

Japanese Grandma's Cafe is located in Historic Hanapepe Town. We proudly serve local fish, meat and produce. Our Master Sushi Chef Shinji Ueki prepares both traditional sushi as well as popular sushi rolls. Executive chef, Thomas Falchini delights with Japanese as well as globally inspired cuisine. Lunch daily from 11:00-3:00 Dinner Thursday through Monday (closed Tues/Weds) 5:30-9:00
We needed a light lunch and had been browsing in the boutique sharing the same space as Japanese Grandma’s Cafe - and on Sunday a lot businesses were closed in the historic Hanapepe area. Clean, stylish & smartly designed, this simple cafe served up delicious freshly made California rolls with generous wasabi and ginger. We wish we could have sampled more from their menu but needed to have an early dinner before a show so needed a light meal to get us through. I would certainly go back.

We were attending the Hanapepe Friday Night Street Fair and decided to have Bobbie's half chicken, rice and macaroni salad special. The chicken was being cooked on the grill in front of the restaurant. It seemed like more than a meal for me and my wife.
The half chicken was huge. Unfortunately, perhpas because the grill man is constantly trying to fill order for chicken and ribs, the chicken was underdone. We were only able to eat parts of it. The rice was ordinary and the mac/potato salad was good. I wish I could report a better experience. I will chalk it up to the street fair, not their normal cooking standards inside the restaurant.

Interested to try a local place, but... I ordered the teri chicken, which had been fried earlier and reheated, not good. My husband had the Caesar with fish, which he said was cooked perfectly. Lots of locals, so good when you make the right
choices, I suspect. Cheerful, efficient service.

This place if of the main highway in Hanapepe. We had a group of 6 and were seated immediately. We were the only "tourists" in the restaurant which appears to be mostly frequented by locals. The food was solid Hawaii comfort food. We had the classic Loco-Moco as well as Kalua Pork Moco and a few other dishes. All of the dishes were plentiful and tasted great. You can't beat the prices either, our group of 6 ate for $60 including a generous tip. Enjoy!
