I don’t know about you but I’m not really a morning person. So there are two occasions I’m most likely to go out for breakfast: my mom’s visiting, or I’m hung over. Gazebo is perfect for both. It offers traditional breakfast and lunch fare at reasonable prices, casual yet quality service, and the best oceanside location ever, with spectacular views of Napili Bay and Molokai. This locale is especially impressive during humpback whale season. And of course, the salt air wafting through the shaded Gazebo can cure even the biggest whale of a hangover, too. Why aren’t all breakfast nooks like this? 5315 L. Honoapi’ilani Rd., Napili, 669-5621.
