So good

We visited the North Shore for 2 weeks in December. We were told by our house hosts to try the restaurant. It was so good, large portions, we shared a hamburger and fries. I recommend stopping in.

On this end of town, near the food trucks, you get more of a feel for the old Haleiwa. The other end is all being renovated with an effort to appeal to a more affluent crowd. At least the prices reflect that. Cafe Haleiwa is a funky little place that serves breakfast all day, and lunch. It closes after 2... More

I came here in the late morning for a pancake breakfast and had the banana pancakes meal. The pancakes were fluffy and delicious and I had a very short wait for a table. It seemed to be filled with locals which also gave a good vibe to the place.

My husband and I popped into Cafe Haleiwa for breakfast during our two-week stay on the North Shore. My omelette was delicious and my husband had the sweet bread french toast, which he really liked. It definitely felt like a place the locals go, which was cool. Really awesome artwork on the walls, too!

This place epitomises what the north shore is about. Love the seating out the back when its full just as much as sitting inside the diner when we can get a table. A little touristy perhaps at times but still an experience. Food satisfying. Service friendly and the location and decor is what makes this place. Parking out back which... More
