Bigtikidude, didnt make it to eat at Eggberts, but went by there one day and my mom said it was good. (we had already eaten that day)
Had breakfast one morning at the Oki diner.
Good pancakes with eggs and bacon or portugese sausage.
pretty tasty, a tad expensive, even for hawaii, and skip that strawberry syrup and the coconut syrup too. gross.

Sweetpea, your pictures bring back fond memories of my first and only trip to the Islands.

In addition to 2 days on Oahu, I spent 6 at the exact same Lawai Beach Resort. That was back in '95, and it is wild to see that nothing there has changed.

I was lucky to get an invite from a good friend and her family who purchased time at 2 units there. It was great to trade Wisconsin January for Kauai January.

I also enjoyed just walking across the street to surf the reef out front of just put on a mask and be wowed by the ocean life.

Just a walk down the street allowed a view of the blowhole.

I also did a few trips to other parts of the island... Waimea Canyon, Hanalei Bay and a helicopter tour.

Thanks for sharing the pictures... reminds me I have to get back there someday!

Hi Sweetpea!, thanks for posting your pics of Kauai and for sharing your experiences. My wife, son and daughter and I will be in Kauai for a total of 10 days starting next Friday. Your pics are very good and are making us that much more anxious to be getting there!
Although this will be our 3rd trip to the island it's been 10 years since our last visit. Alot has changed I'm sure.
We'll be staying in Kapaa, but plan on getting all around the island, snorkeling, kayaking, and also hitting some of the places that have been recommended on various threads including Tahiti Nui, Havaiki, Dukes, and especially the new tasting room at the Koloa Rum Company!
How were The Takeoffs? and also is there any one thing that you would recommend that I might otherwise miss?

Thanks, Ed

And also, Chongolio, if your out there, would love to meet you. Maybe lunch, drinks, whatever!

aaaaaaand I'm going back to Kaua again leaving this sunday!!!! Can't wait.
Going to Tahiti Nui for sure, going to see Chongolio again,
and found out a friend from high school lives in Hanalei, so
hoping to see her too! Mostly lounging on our little Lawai
beach, and maybe some thrifting and fabric shopping.
Might try Port Allen Sunset Bar and Grill, anyone been there?
Hoping it will be good!
Sweetpea
