LOVED the macademia nut pancakes

We ordered an extra plate because we all wanted more! Must try! Worth the wait! I would love to know what is in that sauce! My husband doesn't normally eat more than a bite of pancake was shoveling it in!

We stopped here, with the recommendation of a tour guide in Honolulu. Yes, the food was super! The Macadamia Nut Vanilla white sauce was super! Highly recommended!

A little small...I was thinking it was bigger. From the outside, it looks big but when we went in to put our name, it was small. We waited 1 hour and 30 minutes but it was totally worth it! I had the corn beef omelette. My husband had the portuguese sausage with a side order of red velvet pancakes. The... More

The wait for a table as always is about timing. This place is BUSY all the time, so don't be in a hurry. Just enjoy the little boutique shops around the restaurant. But leave a lookout close to hear them call you because they just move to the next name on the list if you drift off. They are VERY... More

The omelets and HUGE, generously filled, and accompanied by potatoes; you have to order toast extra if you want it. The wait staff are friendly and efficient, but the place can be noisy and elbow to elbow. (This place seems to be a special favorite of Japanese tourists, mainly pods of young girls with selfie-sticks. Annoying!) Wait times outside are... More

This is busy place. Prepare to wait but the food is worth it. It is know for macadamia nut pancakes but we ordered omelet and loco moco. And actually the loco moco is not on the menu. You have to order the hamburger steak and eggs and request it loco moco style. My significant other ordered an omelette. The 3... More

This is a VERY busy place for pancakes and breakfast, and there's always a horde of people, mainly tourists, waiting outside for a table. The pancakes are excellent but the service somewhat lacking due to their busyness. It is not cheap around $12 for pancakes. Is it worth a try? Yes, if you haven't tried it as it is pretty... More
