Good food

Three of us saw this restaurant on this app, looked at the menu, and decided this was a place we wanted to try. We got in almost immediately on a weekday morning. The staff were friendly and helpful. The amount of food we were given was very generous. A place to visit.

I got there after the breakfast rush so I didn't have to wait as long as some other reviewers. I ordered the eggs florentine with some hot tea. The food was great, but the service was even better. Note: Parking can be difficult to find.

I would like to find an appropriate word to describe this place and the food but there isn't one except DELICIOUS. We had to wait to get in but it was worth every second of the wait. The food was plentiful, hot and absolutely wonderful. The staff was very attentive to our needs. They didn't have sweet tea so I... More

Great specials to mix it up if your a regular. Food portions are quite large but the food is very good. Thus far never disappointed. They can work a little on the coffee

Wildly popular with locals and visitors. The food is ample, lots to eat but the restaurant itself is very small so you can wait up to 1 hour to get in. No reservations taken, just put your name on a list. The food is no more unique or different than many other breakfast places in Honolulu so I am not... More

We found this cafe through trip advisor and given its location we probably otherwise would not have visited. When we arrived there was a short wait before we were seated. The staff were very friendly and the service prompt. The food was delicious and very generous, there was a lot of food in our order. I would definitely recommend this... More

I've always wondered about the lines at Cafe Kaila, because it doesn't look that special. But looks aren't everything. Take large portions, decent prices (for Hawaii), good service and good food and it's worth waiting a while. You might enjoy the variety of eggs benedict (regular, with kalua pork, with salmon, etc.) I just wish they came in a single... More

A great breakfast choice and friendly service. It was worthy for our 30+ minutes bus ride from Ala Moana Center to this café in Market City.

I absolutely love their Belgian Waffle, and the omelets with potatoes and sourdough toast. And great coffee. We stayed in Hawaii for 10 days and ate hear 3 times for breakfast. There can be a wait, but i found it to be worth it.
