Eating frenzy on Kauai


We didn’t have much time.

Only on Kauai for two days — and working most of our waking hours — we wanted to see and do and eat as much as we could in a 48-hour span.

It’s amazing how much this island has to offer, from white-sand beaches to lush hikes to historic towns bustling with art galleries, walking tours and trendy eateries.

We spent our last day traveling from magical Hanalei on Kauai’s north shore to the historic plantation town of Hanapepe on the west side, eating at every stop in between.

Here’s what our weekend eating frenzy looked like:

First stop: coffee. So we headed to the charming town of Hanalei on Kauai’s north shore and directly to Java Kai, a coffee shop opened by Jennifer and Brent Hickman in 1997.
