The little town of Hanapepe was pleasantly filled with new, eclectic & chic businesses, galleries and boutiques.
My favorite cafe was the "Little Fish Coffee". It was like stepping back into Hanapepe in the early 50s, the architecture, retro kitchen table & chairs, chalkboard menu offering, bowls, sandwiches, smoothies, freshly baked banana bread, coffee, and juiced veggies. But the iPad cash register, surely brought me back to 2013. There was a cute little courtyard in the back for someone to relax and enjoy the wonderful warm weather of Kauai.
I had the Very Green smoothie and Mom's Banana Bread and they both hit the spot for my healthy snack. The smoothie was filled with banana, kale, spirulina, pineapple, and whey protein. The banana bread tasted like mamma used to bake and made with local apple bananas - dense and fluffy at the same time.
So the next time you are on Kauai, take a break in the little town of Hanapepe.
