You need to get this book "The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook: Kauai Revealed
" br Andrew Doherty & Harriet Friedman.
We went 2 years ago, staying in Princeville. Only spent one day in Poipu, so I can't be of help there. We loved this place in Wailua called Caffe Coco. On hwy 56, across from Kintaro restaurant, north of mile marker 6, head towards the back. 822-7990 Great food $7-$17 for lunch or dinner
Take your kids for some shave ice! They will love it! they put a scoop of ice cream on the bottom. Chocolate ice cream with raspberry shave ice was my fave.
I bet you can get this book through your local library. You will not be disappointed with it. Great places to explore and great places to eat! We went to restaurants recommended and didn't have a single bad meal. And we didn't spend an arm and a leg either.
Have fun! Share pictures with us when you return!
