Named not after the Disney character but the right-foot-forward surfing stance, this charming spot has a cozy, beachy vibe, lined with reclaimed wood and decorated with surfboards that, from the looks of it, are waxed and ready to go. (The popular locals’ surfing spot, Bowls, is nearby.) It’s a surfer’s cafe as envisioned by a Japanese company that also runs Aloha Table in Waikiki. Goofy has a breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu, but breakfast (served all day) is the best part: Look for eggs Benedict, French toast drizzled with creamy Big Island honey, green smoothies poured over chia seeds, and huge acai bowls mounded over with fresh fruit. Come later, for dinner or to sit at the bar, and you can get a sugarcane sour, shaken with Hawaiian Shochu Co.’s unique, Haleiwa-made sweet-potato spirit.
