Great food, fun atmospher

This is a unique breakfast and lunch place. The restaurant is in a house that is decorated colorfully with cat prints and statues around. The menu is eclectic and the food is delicious.

We were traveling with a group of children(5) all under the age of 11. It could not have been more obvious that this hostess did not want our business. There was one party of 4 ahead of us when we TRIED to check in. She told us it would be an hour wait! WHAT!!! So, thinking that is was our... More

A very good place to have brunch. I ordered lobster omelette and my husband ordered lobster benedict. Both are pretty good.

We stopped here with our 3 boys ages 5, 11, & 15. My husband had the portobello mushroom and Swiss cheese omelette. It was delicious. One son had banana strawberry pancakes and the other had blueberry pancakes. The other had an egg sandwich with Canadian bacon I believe. I had an egg plate that had tomatoes and basil and hash...

Me and my family visited this one morning during our stay and we were very pleased with the quality of food. It is situated in a Victorian style house with both indoor and outdoor seating that accommodates everyone. The overall feel and atmosphere along with the delicious food and coffee made me want more!

2 Cats served a good breakfast. There was no specialty, but you could get nearly anything you wanted.

We love Two Cats for breakfast when on vacation in BH---a cottage on Cottage Street, always a line to get in, but well worth the wait. Delicious omelets, the best bacon ever, and for a Hawaiian from Kona---wonderful, dark roast, never empty mug of coffee to start the day. The staff is relaxed while moving at 60 mph. If its... More

Service is not for those in a hurry. Interesting old home, very creative menu combinations and everything was delicious, reasonably priced.

We went there for brunch and found a queue. The place seems to be a local favorite of the people. Our wait-time was around 10-15 min but it was worth the wait. Food was delicious and portions sizes were generous. The sides like the spicy home made fries, smooth biscuit and fluffy strawberry butter were yummy. This place is not... More

Insanely crowded for a reason! Situated in a charming Victorian, this sweet little breakfast joint whipped up one of my most memorable brunches during my BH stay. Fresh & creative versions of breakfast standard...& hands down the best daRN biscuits I've ever had (and I don't even LIKE biscuits!!!!).
