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

I visited the North Shore with my wife and three year old son in February 2015. We aren't ones to stay in the resort and like to go out and see what the area offers and we were not disappointed with the Hukilau Cafe. 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!

This little local spot is a great find for breakfast. We had the omelets, which were huge, and well stuffed with fillings (lots of real cheese, too). It seems to be a favourite with the locals, which is always a good sign. Cash only.

We ate here twice on our 10 days of vacation in Laie. The locomoco was very good! We also tried the macadamia, coconut and blueberry pancakes which were good. Luckily we went around 7am and we got a table right away. After we got there it got busy and people had to wait in line. It is not a big... More

I guess for really upscale food one has to spend big bucks for Roy's. This place has nice atmosphere and tasty enough food and might be a better choice during happy hour.

We live on Oahu. We just discovered this hidden little gem! All homemade food! Portions are BIG! If you come famished, you won't leave that way! You might even need to pack it back to your hotel frig! Great food! Parking is tricky! It's tucked in between homes in a little neighborhood! It's great food! Great prices! And you'll need... More
