Awesome Hawaiian breakfast joint!

We really enjoyed our breakfast experience here. I had spam and eggs and short stack of banana pancakes. Coffee does come in a styrofoam cup, which is a bit weird.

We are long time customers to this restaurant and today was the first time everything was bad. Coffee arrived warm, no refill on coffee until we were done. Sent back two of four meals for being served cold bacon, cold eggs. When it was sent back it took so long that we cancelled the order because the others were done.... More

Pleasant, homey environment with no harsh lighting. Lots of choices, fair prices and your coffee cup is always full.

Despite the super small parking lot, cramped seating (unless you get a booth), and long line in the morning, the breakfast is worth the wait. The pancakes are a must, but my absolute fav is the vina dosh omelet...garlic and vinegar marinated pork in my eggs? What more do I need? I always review the oversized menu, but can't help... More

I brought my family here decades after I first visited with my grandfather. It still looks the same after all these years - nothing's changed. THAT'S OK! I wanted it to all stay the same, and it has. The food is still plentiful, the pancakes are great, and the coconut syrup is still there. Some places just need to keep... More

My family and I have been here for breakfast several times now. The macadamia nut pancakes are delicious and very filling. The short stacked and potatoes was enough to feed my wife, 2 girls and myself. I highly recommend this place as the food is great and the price is very affordable.

Light fluffy spongy goodness. Mix the regular and coconut syrups!!! I will definitely make coconut syrup at home now. It's a must have on pancakes now. Yum!

I would guess that we have been there over 100 times ....we did go EVERY Saturday and then went to takeout, There is usually a substantial line but the wait is never that long. Just about every thing is delicious.....my favorite are Loco Moco with fried rice, Sweet Bread French Toast, and Fried Rice with Spam and Egg......

One of the best places for breakfast/brunch in Kaneohe! Parking can be a problem, but once you park your car and get in, the service is fast. All the employees are friendly, portions are huge. I suggest that you go with others and "share" your order with your party; that way you can experience all that they have to offer!
