Hands down the best place for breakfast in Kaneohe. parking can pose a problem but the nearby bank parking lot is doable. Friendly staff and delicious food make it a winner.

Reasonable, typical local selections in a "treehouse" like setting but often overly greasy. Loco Moco is a nice specialty. Efficient and pleasant service.

Not exactly a hole-in-the-wall place and parking is a challenge, but KPH gives you a BIG breakfast, large portions, and friendly service, with local syrups for the really big, fluffy pancakes. Lots of other menu choices as well. Hint: on Sundays, try to time it so you don't have to compete for a table with the church crowd -but the... More

Not as good as it was a few years ago. Still great service and coffee. Prices have gone up and quality of the food seems to have dropped a bit. It still is my "go to" place for breakfast in Kaneohe.

Def. the best pancake and breakfast restaurant on Oahu. Way better than the commercialized ones in town or in Kailua. a must try as the taste, big portions and the price is right.

Always a line but the wait is usually no longer than ten or fifteen minutes. It's worth the wait! Speedy service, friendly waitresses, your coffee is always, always refilled. Oh, and by the way, the food is good!!! Lots of selections, some even available in half-order size (good for seniors). Love their Spinach Florentine, banana crepes, and roast pork loco... More

Wait staff knows you at your second visit and the food is scrumptious and plentiful. The pancakes are the fluffiest and the omlettes are gigantic and delicious. The name on the sign is Kaneohe Pancake House but the menu and coffee cups say Koa Pancake House - which is the name the locals know this by.

How much you like it will very much depend on your taste and to a large extent where you are from. The pancakes are fairly good (but not exceptional) and IMO they use way way too much grease in both the pancakes and eggs. I have ordered an omlette many times to find it literally swimming in butter substitute. My... More

My husband had blueberry pancakes that were loaded with blueberries. A short stack of 3 was more than he could eat. I had the pecan pancakes..Yum.
