I may be biased, but this is hands down the BEST place for breakfast on Kaua’i.
Located in Kapa’a, across the street from the Kapa’a Library on the Kuhio highway, Kountry Kitchen offers an extensive menu of breakfast flavors and local favorites, including kalua pork omelettes and loco moco (fried egg over rice covered with gravy). Portions are tasty, filling and BIG. There’s a different fresh juice selection offered daily, depending on what’s in season. I’ve had papaya juice, fresh pineapple juice, and on our last visit likikoi (passionfruit) juice, which was out of this world.
Our first meal on Kaua’i when we arrived in 2014 was breakfast at the Kountry Kitchen, and each year since we’ve gone back to celebrate our anniversary (this year was a bit belated as we were just home from Oahu on that date). We make a point of going there for breakfast whenever visitors, both family and friends, are here and it’s one of Brett and my favorite date locations. They’re also open for lunch, but breakfast Hawaiian style is their claim to fame with both locals and visitors.
While the food is just as good as it was when we first went in 2014, the restaurant moved into a new, larger location next to their old one last year. The old location was infamous for its long lines and long waits for a booth or table, and while that’s mostly been taken care of you can still expect a short wait if you arrive at peak breakfast hours (9:00 – 11:00 a.m.).
If you’re ever visiting Kaua’i, let me know and Brett and I will be happy to meet you for breakfast Kaua’i style at the Kountry Kitchen!
