Our Story

recipe for aloha


Our story began in Oahu in 2012 when John Adams, Chef and owner of Anuenue Café met Michelle Hastings, GM and Owner.  We opened our charming restaurant in Poipu in 2015 with a vision to bring a new dimension to breakfast in the area and elevate traditional eggs and bacon.


Anuenue Café opening was an entrepreneurs dream come true. ​John has been working in kitchens since he was 15, growing up in San Clemente, surfing and cooking, then spent 18 years in Vail honing his chef skills, then made the move to Oahu to continue to surf and start his Private Chef North Shore business.  Michelle is an economics teacher by trade, and has now joined the restaurant business to bring better breakfast to Kauai.  

Michelle's daughter Kendall, is pursuing her dream to become a professional photographer, now attending UC San Diego pursing a degree in Visual Arts Media.  You can see her artwork on the walls of the Café!
