Mermaids Café

(808) 821-2026

Fresh wraps made with local produce are the specialty at Mermaids Café, a small, cash-only roadside stand located on Kuhio Highway in Kapaa. The bright blue and yellow café has a handful of outdoor tables surrounded by planters and an ocean-themed mural. Incorporating island and pan-Asian flavors, the lunch and dinner plates are generously portioned and include a variety of vegetarian options. Top sellers include the chicken coconut curry and the ahi nori (seaweed) wrap with rice, cucumber, wasabi cream, and picked ginger. Also popular are the hibiscus iced tea and the Thai iced tea sweetened with coconut milk.
