Fun little breakfast joint that we enjoyed twice on our visit to Kauai. Good breakfast options, with a few that are even healthy which is a nice change. The prices do feel a little high though.

While out strolling one morning we stopped in here only because I saw someone sitting outside eating a macadamia nut cinnamon roll and it looked so yummy I gave into temptation and went in. Got it and took it back to condo to enjoy later, it was okay but not as yummy as I had expected it to be and it was pricey. I have to say the smell of coffee from there was tempting maybe next trip will give it a go.

The food was okay here but not great. Service was slow and it wasn't all that busy.

Hanalei Wake-up Cafe smells the coffee at an average 3 stars overall.

The Macadamia Nut Cinnamon Roll and French Toast servings got some of the highest praises. Customers described both meals with terms such as "killer" and "amazing".

The customer service for many was less than appealing with the staff being described as slow and the owner described as unfriendly.

The Hanalei Wake-up Cafe gets its praise for its french toast and even more so the macadamia nut roll. It appears that this place could be worth dining for an enjoyable breakfast or brunch, if you're patient and have a flexible personality.
