Both Hawaiian and haole style breakfasts served in a friendly atmosphere at reasonable prices. It's off the beaten path, but if you're in the Kaneohe area, worth a trip.

We had a wonderful Sunday Breakfast there with mostly locals. There was a short wait but well worth it. From pancakes to omelets, bacon to Portuguese sausage all were just fabulous. Coffee was served rapidly and they kept the cups full. Next trip to Hawaii our first breakfast will probably be there.

Who would know this was here, unless you noticed that parking gets tight around this restaurant during business hours.. That's because it's deliciousness is known by most locals and this is where they choose to eat in the mornings before they close at 3pm everyday. Everything on the menu is delicious.. Enjoy

I'm glad some locals took us here. This is not a tourist trap location. Just great hometown cooking. Pancake plates are more than you can eat. Bacon is very good. You might wait a few minutes before getting a seat or parking on the weekends. It's worth the time and effort.

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.

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
