We've been eating breakfast in Waikiki every morning for a week now. Lots of decent places. Eggs and things (about a 5 minute walk from Kani Ka Pila Grille) is nice too, same quality of food, as long as you don't mind the 40 min to hour plus wait EVERY DAY (unless you are there EARLY!). Three times now we've walked up the street to the beach (it's in the Outrigger hotel) to this grille, which has very nice outdoor/covered seating. Nice ocean breeze, nice atmosphere, fast and courteous staff, and the breakfast's are served reasonably quick and are a GREAT value and quite tasty also! I've had the pancake special and the fried rice special, both highly recommended. One of our group had the fruit bowl, and I should have taken a picture...it was awesome (what she didn't eat she took with her to go, it was that good). Lots of tasty coffee, just a great no-wait breakfast place. I'd eat there every day from here on out. Not one complaint from our group after 3 trips. Save your time, don't wait at other places and go here, you won't regret it. I only gave it 4 out of five stars becasue it's not a "five star" type of place. But as I said, for a breakfast place with low cost (considering you're on the beach), you can't beat it.
