Where do Kaua‘i chefs go for a casual meal out? A couple of them spilled the secret. They drive up to the small town of Kalaheo and eat at Kalaheo Café & Coffee Co., run by former hotel chef John Ferguson.

For breakfast and lunch, it’s simple food done right. For breakfast, there are omelets, housemade pastries, including scones, and coffees estate-roasted on the Kauai.

At lunch, we love the fresh fish sandwiches, with the bread newly baked, the fish perfectly grilled, and the sandwich loaded with avocado, jack cheese and a citrus-dill mayo. It comes with a salad, fresh, local and crisp.

The breakfasts and lunches only made folks hungry for dinner here. Kalaheo Café now does dinner four nights a week, Wednesdays through Saturdays—mainly comfort food like turkey meatloaf, bourbon-glazed orange chicken and herb-crusted prime rib, all done well, and all at reasonable prices. Coconut flan heads the dessert menu.
