Sweet’s won’t break the bank, with most of their popular items totaling under $10 and a large portion size for the amount patrons spend.

Specialty items:

The Otai is a special island drink the restaurant offers in different flavors, including watermelon coconut and mango pineapple.

A daily special emphasizes some of the restaurant’s signature island foods. It highlights a different island everyday and a specialty that the island prepares.
