Amazing

One of the best restaurants I've been to in Hawaii. Gourmet style food with a small cafe feel. Not a lot of seating but its definitely worth any wait. Best omelet I've had ever.

I'm not a big fan of waffles but loved these. They were so tasty and crunchy. All the dishes are plated nicely and so appetizing. Great Sevice and very busy. I will go back.

Googled breakfast spots in Oahu and Cafe Kaila ranked pretty well. When we pulled up, we saw a line out the door - that looks like a good sign. The service is very friendly even if the kitchen is slow; it's not as though they are executing a complicated menu. The food is good, though not to the extent that... More

Great spot for breakfast and lunch! A small cafe in neighborhood strip mall frequented by locals....definitely not a tourist haven.....which makes it even better. It's comfort food plus.....

April 09 The best thing about Market City Shopping Center is Cafe Kaila. There is usually a crowd in front waiting for their name to be called from the sign-up list. The food is consistently delicious, service is snappy, and the prices are fair. The coffee is wonderful. Just recently Cafe Kaila started dinner service on a limited basis on... More

Kaila sure is a busy small Cafe and there is often a line of Customers waiting to be seated. This place is very popular with Japanese Tourist and Hawaii residents. It is somehow of a phenomenon because neither Food, Service nor Ambiance is in anyway special. Perhaps it is because it is one of few places in the area that... More

When we got to the cafe there was a waiting list, so we almost changed our mind and wanted to go to the nearby cafe, but then decided to wait. OMG! It was so worth it! Food was just amazing! I got a French Toast with strawberries and apples and Portuguese Sausage on the side. Absolutely yummy! Since they are... More
