 Little Fish Coffee was walking distance from our hotel. A charming little coffee shop with colorful patio seating. Perfect for fresh local fruit, acai bowls, and breakfast sandwiches.

 Another great place to find exotic fruits and fresh vegetables.

 This was our favorite stand in the Farmers Market. We picked out a mature coconut and this guy carved a hole in the top for us to drink the coconut water.

 As he told us, every coconut has a “face.” You can see the mouth here.

After you're done drinking the water inside the coconut, take it back and he will use a rock to slice open the coconut to carve out the fruit.

Poipu Beach

 We were lucky enough to see some monk seals sunbathing on Poipu Beach. The monk seals are an endangered species and the only seals native to Hawaii.

Hukilau Lanai

 This restaurant is located behind the Coconut Marketplace Farmers Market. We went here specifically for their poke nachos, but were pleasantly surprised by their fresh local foods and atmosphere.

The next morning, we packed up the car and headed on one last day of sightseeing in Kauai. Since it was so close to our hotel, we went to Poipu Shopping Village for breakfast.

 We heard good things about Kauai Juice Co, so decided to start there. They specialize in fresh, cold-pressed juices in glass bottles. You can either keep the bottle or bring it back next time for credit on your next purchase.

 We happened to stumble upon Anuenue Cafe when we walked out of Kauai Juice Co. There was a long line, which is always a good sign. So, we put our names down and waited for a table.
