A Mind that is stretched by a New Experience can never go back to it’s old dimensions.” - Oliver Wedell Holmes
The newly wed Stewarts, Jason and Jessica, traveled from Bettendorf, Iowa to Oahu, Hawaii in the Fall of 2006. The Stewarts returned to a blustery midwest winter storm, and had to scrape a week’s worth of ice and snow from the windshield with a Flip Flop. They quickly discovered however, that their hearts had stayed in Hawaii. Thus began a lifelong adventure of embracing Humanity as a single organism with infinite cultural expressions all uniquely beautiful and discoverable through the magical stories that express the hearts and passions of their history. As a classically trained Chef, Jason, more commonly known as “Chef Stu”, had made a habit of digging into those stories to coax out nuances in the cuisine that aren’t necessarily found in a recipe. Over the years, Chef Stu developed a passion for making these hidden cultural treasures accessible to anyone with a heart for adventure. Zeke’s Island Cafe is one such voyage that so many people have enjoyed over the past six years and new adventures are just around the corner.
