Fresh pineapple juice makes this a real treat! Everything made hot and fresh. Great after Hawaiian surfer dude haircuts for the Grandkids. Share seating with folks from all over the world who have found this gem.

Likes: Their pancakes are great, so are their omellettes. Their bacon is the best in Kapolei. All in all, we go there at least once a month. Quite popular in Kapolei. A lot of construction crews, local families and military units seem to start their day there. Dislikes: This location doesn't offer as wide a variety of meals as some... More

Nothing fancy but thought the food was good and the service was even better - very friendly staff! We had pancakes and eggs, good eats and delivered fast. By the time I filled my water cup, our food was on the table.

We didn't want to pay the high prices for breakfast at our hotel so I found KOA on TripAdvisor. We were glad we did! It was a short drive from our hotel in Ko Olina and had the most delicious breakfast ever! I ordered the eggs, bacon and blueberry pancakes and loved every bite. My daughter had the same -... More

Great prices, great food, quick service. Great breakfast value, one of the best loco Moco on this island. Two things held me back from 5 stars, no half and half for coffee, just milk, didn't use fresh strawberries on the awesome pancakes. Would definitely visit again. Loved it.

Just came back from eating at this great restaurant and was not disappointed with what we received. My son got the short stack pancakes and it was not small! The Koa omelet had a nice mix of ingredients and the rice was very good. Keep in mind that this is a small place and it fills up quite quickly. Great... More

With prices high at most places around Hawaii, what a pleasure to find a reasonably priced place to get breakfast. Hole in the wall kind of place in a strip mall, but the pancakes were great and the omelets are very good also. For $8 you can get an omelet and pancakes, or a tall stack of pancakes for $5.75...

This place was a breakfast highlight on a great vacation. You still get a "taste of Hawaii" but at a great price. Breakfast for 5 Adults only ran me $31, couldn't beat the price or the fluffy pancakes!!
