Grinds Cafe & Espresso Restaurant Review

: This Westside eatery aims hard to please, and it generally does a good job. The fresh-baked breads and pastries make waking up early easy, as does the full line of cappuccino drinks, served hot and cold. Breakfast is hearty and served all day. A casual menu gives diners a choice of hot and cold sandwiches, salads, omelets, burgers, chicken, fish, pasta and pizza. The Big Chill, an espresso ice cream smoothie, refreshes weary motorists making the scenic drive to Waimea Canyon. Eat outside on the lanai or have your food wrapped up as picnic fixings.
