Impressively tasty baked goods, but the rest of the menu is pretty unimpressive. It's your only option for breakfast at the Hilton Waikoloa, so eat there anyways.

Loved the pineapple juice, the fresh fruit, and the Portuguese sausage! The beautiful photos that adorned the walls were the perfect complement to the very tall (25 feet high?) glass doors that provided the relaxing view of the water.

We only ate here once during our stay as breakfast was not included in our package. I felt it was very expensive for an run of the mill hotel breakfast buffet. Granted, it is much nicer than what you get a the lower end hotels that provide breakfast for all guests. t.

Great place to grab breakfast near the water and start your day. Food is great here and service is fantastic. Nice to be in the hotel to eat.

Very extensive breakfast. My personal favorite was the fish of the day. My only surprise was the lack of indigenous fruits, looked more like what you would see in the mid west.

Nice selection of Hawaiian breakfast food. The omelet bar was fantastic. The service was a bit slow. Watch your table. Waiter cleared the table while getting seconds.

The price to this mediocre buffet keeps climbing: it is now over an astronomical $32/person ...while quality has not improved. Eggs appear to be powdered/overcooked while the quality of breakfast meats is average at best. They do have a made to order omelet station where they will fry you up fresh eggs, but you'd have to eat here all day... More

Excellent breakfast buffet, changes some of the main items daily. Some Asian breakfast choices, some typical items. Great Mimosas.

This is a high priced breakfast buffet, but the food is absolutely amazing. We ate here about half of the mornings we stayed at Waikoloa, and then just got a small breakfast at the coffee shop the other mornings, because we just couldn't eat like that every day! There is a fantastic omelet station, with fresh local produce & meats... More
