Yumi's and Gena.

One of our favorite places to eat is a little shop in Waimea. It is called Yumi's. Gena is our neighbor the the owner of Yumi's. She leaves every morning at 4:30 to start her day. She opens at 7:00 and serves breakfast and lunch only. She stays open until about 2:30. She has some Hawaiian specialties and also serves the best homemade hamburgers ever ($3.00). She greets, takes orders, cooks and waits tables all by herself. She says she can make a living for herself and her son, Dino, that way but can't afford to hire anyone else. She has Sundays off to clean and Mondays so she can buy her stuff for the week at Costco. We are so enjoying the friendships we are making here!
