This place is great. If you are looking for a 4star fancy cuisine, just keep on driving. If you want a hole in the wall, authentic Hawaiian cuisine, and a nice place to rest. This is your place!! The food was filling and great flavors. Highly recommend this place.

This food was awesome. So good in fact, my lunch consisted of the Hukilau Burger and a Loco Moco Bowl. I ended up eating my wife's food too. Then I took another Hukilau Burger and Teri Burger to go.

We saw a small cafe sign while driving the highway north toward North Shore in this small town. We missed the turn but turned at next road to left and ran straight at the cafe. This is a very small local cafe, so we obviously went for the local breakfast of fried rice topped with eggs and side of spam.... More

Stopped by for breakfast. The pancakes were excellent, the vegetable omelet was good. They offered Spam and Vienna sausage with their eggs, an Hawaiian specialty.

Great little neighborhood restaurant. We didn't have to wait for a seat, but the place is small and I could imagine the wait could get long during busy times. The service was friendly and they had a pretty good menu mostly of Hawaiian favorites. I opted for the loco moco which was a sizable portion and delicious. Also tried the... More

We visited twice during our stay for breakfast and can highly recommend the Coconut Pancakes. It... More

Hukilau Cafe has really great breakfast food. They have local kine food and also typical other stuff like waffles (which are delicious). You should definitely eat there and then go eat there again the next day because it's so great!
