My husband ordered the Thai Tacos as well and he enjoyed them! The Flagpoles smoothie was good as well. They offer substitutions for most dietary restrictions which was why we went. A four star is received because they were out of Just Egg, their bacon, their seasoning for the avacado toast, and a few other menu items. We drove around the island specifically to have an allergen free breakfast and then they were out of what we needed to make that happen so that was a bummer, but the other items we ordered were still good!”

“Agne's Portuguese bake shop is a food truck located in the back parking lot of a store. I almost passed it and left but saw it at the last moment. So just park in the parking lot and look around the back, you'll find it behind the gate. The malassada was warm and hot out of the frier. The main difference I can see is that there is a hole in the middle of it which makes for more even cooking and more crispy surface area. Taste wise I'd say it was similar to other malassadas on the island. I guess I'd have to taste them side by side to know for sure. They were hot and sugary and had a nice crisp outside and a moist dense interior. Among the best malassadas on the island minus the long wait. I wouldn't hesitate to get malassadas from here if I was on this side of the island again.”

Cafe Kopi 45 Kihapai St, Kailua Coffee & Tea • $

“Ordered Teh C...and Kopi and Kaya toast. the teh c taste like some regulat tea bag with just some.hot water poured into it. does not even taste like any teh from the singapore kopitiam. the kopi too.. the girl with the nose ring also forgot about out Kaya toast until I went to ask about it after 15 mins later. One of the girls did gave us a free croissant for that. I don't know why the girl keep saying teh Tarik when I ordered Teh C, had to confirm again and again.kaya toast tasted correct though.”

Paniolos Kailua 600 Kailua Rd STE 104, Kailua Burrito • $$

“Found the chipotle of Hawaii finally where I can make my own burritos and salad bowls it's not bad for roughly $16! They have 3 types of base you can pick - white rice, brown rice or salad. 3 types of beans - pinto, black or refried. And then various proteins to choose from. You can top that w a variety of toppings (choose 2 of the 4 types of salsa they have) and guacamole is additional cost. Perfectly filling meal with the salad bowl plus chips. I love it and would definitely order again!”

Maui Brewing Co. Kailua 573 Kailua Rd Suite 105, Kailua American • $$

“Maui Brewing is a great lunch spot if you're in Kailua town. They also offer dinner but I prefer the lunch menu. The seared ahi salad is absolutely delicious. Pair it with a bikini blonde lager and your lunch is set. Service is the new and upcoming style where you order via QR code on the table and pay via cellphone after you order. It's kind of nice instead of having to wait on your party or your serve to be available. You will have your food and drinks served to you after ordering. They also have a cute little gear shop if you want to purchase anything. Seating is available outside, inside or at bar area.”
