The Mouse didn’t know MickyD’s serves breakfast items all day. Sweet!

Picked up a sausage breakfast burrito on the way home.

Sausage Breakfast Burrito

A favorite of The Mouse’s for a long time, except the packaged salsa is a little “sucky”.

No matter, The Mouse still had the tomato relish in the refridge.

Tomato Relish

And, in the back of the refridge …

Preserved Prune and Dried Apricots with Preserved Lemon

Not Mouse made but homemade. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Browsing through the internet. Idea for breakfast, salsa on eggs. No salsa in the pantry.

Acceptable Substitute

At least to The Mouse. Hee hee. Eggs and fried rice from the snack bar.

Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes and Okra

Okra was a bit hard and stringy, tossed. Tomato added a “ketchup-y” vibe. Nom.

Stayed a little longer in town yesterday. Grocery store would probably be sold out of lau lau and kalua pork by the time The Mouse drove back. Took a chance at a “hole-in-the-wall”.

Back Entrance

Of course, being Friday, had to try the “Hawaiian plate”.

Lau Lau, Mac Salad, Kalua Pork and Cabbage, Rice

Not bad, not as good as grocery store, but, what’s the bumper sticker message? “A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work”? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Tuesday, work, first day of new semester, “no one leaves the office”, even for lunch.



Instant oatmeal, raisins and cinnamon. Added a spoon of chia seeds, I want green hair! Hee hee.


Frozen Saimin

Includes garnishes, local staple. The Mouse didn’t use the included soup packet, too salty, enough flavor without.

For dinner, see previous post. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Several weeks ago, thought we found a new breakfast spot in the neighborhood, Kamalei Kitchen. Returned a couple of weeks later, completely closed shop. No explanation. Sigh.

Several weeks pass and another sign goes up, Kalawe Cafe now open. Turns out, the two owners are related. First owner felt overwhelmed. First-time restaurateurs.

Decided to check it out this past weekend. Menus are very similar.

The Cat tried an omelet.

Spinach, Mushroom, Tomato Omelet with Toast

Two eggs instead of three. No leftovers.

The Mouse tried their riff on the loco moco.

Kapoho Moco

Corned beef hash patties instead of hamburger patties.

House Made Corned Beef Hash Patty

The Mouse liked. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Found a new place for Sunday breakfast/brunch. 🙂


Name is a mashup of the owner’s two daughters, Kamalani and Kalei. Weekends, the daughters run the kitchen.

The Cat’s Order

French toast, bread from Punalu‘u Bake Shop. Generous portion. They let the bread soak in the batter to achieve a custard-y texture. The Cat liked.

Fried Rice Omelet

Owner misheard The Mouse and added an extra scoop of fried rice. Toast included. Everything well prepared. 🙂


In true “omurice” tradition. Hee hee.

Definitely will return, prices are super reasonable too.

Enjoy. Eat well.
