I've found a few good discussions regarding Poipu Beach eating options in general, but my question is specifically regarding breakfast.
I will be in Kauai, at Sheraton Poipu Beach during April 1st week. We would like to find good options nearby for breakfast primarily, that are reasonably priced (in that neighborhood, "reasonable" can take a different meaning so if you know, please share price ranges as well). We are primarily a vegetarian family (we have kids with us), would love to sample fresh fruit and/or typical breakfast items like pancakes, waffles, eggs etc.
Also, are buffets only available at resort restaurants or are they available outside anywhere as well? For meals there are good places like Keogi's, Plantation and Ron's (?) but do they also serve breakfast?
In any restaurants, is it possible to purchase a breakfast option whereby for a fixed amount you can purchase a certain number of breakfasts?
(Like prepaid breakfast).
So far I've found:
- Sheraton's own RumFire breakfast buffet at $25 per person, kids eat free. Reviews range from bad to good. ($50.00 per day).
- Ilima Terrace at Hyatt: $35.00 per person, $16.00 for kids. Reviews are great. I wonder if it's because nobody wants to believe that for that price food can be bad or ok. ($86.00 per day)
- Kukui'lua website has a couple restaurants listed, with prices like $16.00 for one pancake. Is this for real? Are they topped with gold? :-)
(I guess, no telling exact price since it depends on what/where you eat).
Overall, does it get better than this or this is life at Kauai for a tourist?
Thanks in advance for pointers.
