Not Sure If Worth The Wait. But Good Eats.

Wow, we were wondering if the huge line out the door was going to be worth waiting for and I'm glad to say it is! This place is popular with locals and Japanese tourists so it's always busy but the food is super tasty and the menu is HUGE for such a small cafe. The Belgian Waffle with Nutella is... read more

Cash only, no restrooms, long lines, and terrible seating, yet we still visited here three times on our trip! It's fabulous food and reasonably priced. I loved the acai bowls, but everything looked great. I highly recommend it--even if there is a line.

A little disappointed in our visit today. This was a favourite breakfast stop for us after climbing Diamond Head but today the service wasn't good and very average coffee. We did not order food because what we seen others eating it did not look up to Bogarts old standard.

I don't want to repeat what all the others have said but you must try this place as an alternate to your local hotel's buffet or a drivethrough breakfast. Simply amazing, delicious sandwiches!! We didn't have much trouble with the wait before 7:45am but we came one morning at 9 and the line was out the door (forget about parking... More

This place was recommended to us by friends, and we went about 5x during our 10 night stay. Definitely worth the trip! Go early to avoid lines, but I'm sure there will always be a line. Bogarts is just that good. The Hawaiian waffles with haupia sauce is to die for. Discovered those our last day. The Acai berry bowl... More

Food excellent but crowded and no public restrooms and CASH only. We arrived around 8:30 am and finally placed our order around 9 am. We had to hover over a couple finishing their meal in order to get a table around 9:15 am. Food served to us around 9:30 am. Acai bowl - tasty and refreshing. Blueberry Pancakes were yummy... More

Read reviews on TA prior to vacation. Before hiking Diamond Head we stopped to try the Acai Bowl.....needless to say they were delicious! They are made to order so you may have to wait a few minutes. Small area inside for eating but there are a few tables outside. Both days we went were there before 7 a.m. and no... More

We stopped on our way to hike Diamond Head. I was sure I was going to need some protein to sustain me, so despite how great the fruit looked, I opted for the crab cakes Benedict. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!! The best crab cake I have had in forever! Oh heavens it was good. My eggs were a little too runny... More

This little place on Monsarrat is a hideaway. Their acai bowls are by far the best. Sandwiches are delicious. Salads are hearty. Be prepared to wait in a long line with confusion and disorganization. The staff will bust their butts to service you but the clientele have no class. Still, a great place for better for you food!

Located in a little indie strip mall, a block from the park, is this fabulous breakfast stop you shouldn't miss. Serving daily special smoothies, perfectly prepared omelettes, pancakes, crispy bacon, etc and a cup of coffee to savor - it is a must stop for breakfast fanatics. Don't be put off that it's packed, has mismatched tables, dishes and a... More
