While this restaurant is tucked away and you might not notice it since it is next to Napa Auto Parts, they offer a great breakfast. The parking lot can get filled, so you might need to park down the street. They a variety of pancake flavors and offers other breakfast options as well. Start the day with a great pancake.

Crazy. These folks don't play with food. Great test and service and portion. I am coming back for sure. Wow.

This place is open for breakfast and lunch only. It is one of the most popular places to eat with the Kama'aina (locals). Be sure to come hungry, large portions. Has wonderful aromatic and tasty coffee and the food is Ono (to die for).

I moved to the Windward side over 20 years ago, and Koa has maintained the same high quality to this day. Wonderful friendly service and great tasty food. We like the fried rice and omelets. The are very accommodating to those with food allergies and very willing to make substitutions. Long lines on weekends.

We discovered Koa Pancake House several years ago while on Oahu. After the first visit; it became our favorite place to go for breakfast! (3 visits in a week...and we were staying in Waikiki!). Great food, generous portions, and friendly staff! The pancakes are wonderful...especially topped with a variety of tropical syrups. (Worth blowing the diet!)

My first of many visits started in 1980. Un all this time the excellent level of service and food quality has not waived. The specialty pancakes (macadamia nut and banna) are HUGE and fluffy... topped with house made orange - pineapple syrup, this is a wonderful culinary treat. The omelets are plentiful and great tasting. A sign of popularity and... More

I love this place. Doesn't look from the outside like the cozy diner it is on the inside but don't let that and some tricky parking dissuade you. And don't go to other Koa's and think it will be the same because it isn't. This place is great for singles, couples and families to go for a great breakfast. For... More

This place has the best crepes I think I have ever had in my entire life - very big portions, and not much healthy stuff on the menu, but then you can always go somewhere else for that :)

We also went to the Koa Pancake House in Aiea thr other day, and this one was way better! This is a sit down restaurant with a local feel. The one in Aiea was not as clean or friendly, and you order at the front, they then bring it to you. Great food, large portions, nice service here in Kaneohe.

I got Denver omelette with spinach instead of ham(95 cent substitute) and instead of potatoes I opted for specialty pancakes (for $3.00 extra) Great size, but it came out to $17.00!! I enjoyed my food but don't prefer to pay that for breakfast. The pancakes were to die for though! 3 Banana and chocolate chip fluffy pancakes with lightly sprinkled... More
