I wanted to try something local and read about all the good things about Hukilau cafe and I love 50 First Dates. Despite all the great reviews about how great this place is, I am sorely disappointed. Yes, it was the inspiration of that cute cafe in the movie 50 First Dates. Sadly, the appeal ends there. It is a... More

Yum Yum YUM. My friend and I went to this little cute restaurant two days ago and got the Banana and Chocolate chip pancakes. SO WORTH IT. Plus it was cool eating Banana Pancakes in Hawaii {Jack Johnson Anybody?} The service was really great, we only waited for like seven minutes for our food. Its light and doesn't leave you... More

Really good food, which was made all the better by seeing Taylor Willy, from Hawaii 5-0 there. He is a local and this was his choice, so you know it is going to be good.

If you like to eat where the locals do, this is the place. A little off the beaten path, but we had a great breakfast, and our server was a doll!

Breakfast was the best the we had all week. Price was fine, You could tell that there was most likely going to be a wait everyday, but not long.

Great breakfast - Had the Loco Moco - delicious but don't order it if you're health conscious! I don't even want to know how many calories… I ordered it because it was featured on the food network but should have asked what it was… haha! Definitely enjoyed it though! One downfall was poor coffee but other than that all our... More

I cannot come to the North Shore without a visit to Kahuku Grill. It is not just the food, but also the atmosphere. All the staff is sweet and seems genuinely happy to be there and happy that you are there as their guest. Their specialty burgers are outstanding. Do not skip dessert. The only difficult aspect of this place... More

I ordered the hungry Hawaiian and my wife got the pancakes. Nothing out of this world, solid breakfast, and large portions. Both meals and a soda ran $20 with tip. If any of you reading this review are staying at Turtle Bay this is a excellent option to avoid playing $21 for a 3 egg omelet. As a heads up,... More
