For the next part of the tour, we move 2500 miles away to Hawaii.

Henry tries to get Lucy’s attention everyday by trying some crazy things by the side of the road. From putting a penquin in the middle of the road to gettting tied-up. The one trick that backfires on him, was where Henry has his friend, Ula, rob him on the side of the road as Lucy is driving by. This is where Lucy pulls out a bat and starts hitting Him. These amazing scenes were all filmed on the main road through the Kualoa Ranch.

 Where is the The Hukilau Cafe?

According to a recent tip, the actual cafe’s wooden structure that’s seen in the film is still there but was last seen all boarded up. The physical building is located near the Tropical Farms’ Macadamia Nut Outlet, in Kaaawa, close to Kaneohe Beach Park, which, as Auntie says in the movie, is near Kualoa Ranch.

Update: Thanks to recent tip from Ryan, we now know the location of the Hukilau Cafe in the movie was in the Moli’i Pond, Moli’i Gardens.  Looks like the structure is not there any longer but from shore pictures it is clear this was the location.

Since this was not a real restaurant, all of the internal Cafe scenes were shot on a soundstage. It was easier and cheaper to re-create a cafe on a soundstage than to actually film in Hawaii.

Don’t be disappointed, there’s a real Hukilau Cafe located further up the coast at Laie. The rumor is that they serve awesome breakfasts, including some amazing waffles like the ones seen in the film.

now sits at 55-662 Wahinepee St, Laie, HI 96762

Fun Film Fact: Some other great movies and TV shows have been filmed here including LOST, Jurassic Park, George of the Jungle, Godzilla, and Pearl Harbor

Where is Lucy’s family home?

Thanks to user KJ, the exact location of the house can be found behind the Waikane Store located at 48-377 Kamehameha Hwy, Kaneohe, HI 96744. 

There’s an unnamed road sitting right beside the store.  That is the road that leads to Lucy’s house. 

 In this scene, you can see the tiny island of Mokolii in the background if you’re looking for a reference point.

The 600-foot Waikane Pier shown above is located on a private property, between Waiahole and Kualoao on Kaneohe Bay. The now dilapidated Pier was also seen in LOST episode 02 of season 3 “The Glass Ballerina” and in episode 23 of season 2 Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1″ as the Pala Ferry terminal, seen at the end of the episode.
