“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2010

Kono's rocks. The food and service are amazing. We ate breakfast here almost everyday while on our vacation, with no disappointments. I highly recommend the local breakfast burrito and the banana macadamia nut waffle. Lunch is also very good. Two thumbs up!!!

“Food is terrible!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010 via mobile

My wife and I ate breakfast here and the food is terrible. It really looks and tastes like microwaveable food. The people who worked there were very friendly but the food sucks! Try Cafe Haleiwa instead. The food there is great!

“Outstanding pulled pork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

We were greeted by a friendly woman who made great suggestions. We had the most amazing pulled pork sandwiches. I think all four of us ordered the same. The servings are huge, but after a few hours of braving the waves, we had no trouble eating every bite. The sauces were delish. There are a few tables inside, but we ate outside in the shade.

“Great breakfast spot- cheap, quick, & delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2010

This is how we surfers like our breakfast spots: relaxed, lots of surf photos, a surf video on the tv, some good hot coffee, & a simple breakfast menu. Kono's brings it.

Delicious Kona Coffee-piping hot & tasty & refills, Mac Nut Waffle-waffle, nuts, whipped cream, what else do you need?, there are other items like the breakfast burritos, I got the waffle & coffee and didn't spend $20. I was very pleased.

Its got great atmosphere and some great picnic tables out front to hang out at. If you want elegant, classy breakfast dining go somewhere else. This place is for the casual, fun, relaxed traveler without picky tastes.
