Basic breakfast, they were out of a lot of items when we went this morning. Was kinda comical, seemed like everything I order they were out! Place is super loud, not very big. Staff was nice even though they were still going to charge us...More

We went here for breakfast. The service is incredibly fast, as well as getting your food. It's your basic diner experience with a Hawaiian flare to it. A lot of locals eat here. Reasonably priced and a good amount of food. Definitely worth a try!

Decided to try this for our first morning here. Waitress was very polite and took very good care of us. Food was very good and plenty of it. Will eat there again.

I'm a local and dont really care about service as much as I do about the food but this place sucks. Waitress rude and acts like she hates being there. We waited long for our check only to be told we needed to go up...More

This is the kind of place I see in fishing communities around where I live. Good food, very filling that will keep you going all day. Cash or checks only though!

Always busy...staff is rushed and want you in and out. Asked for bacon crispy. What I got looked like rubber. They argued with me on how my bacon should be cooked. Last I looked I paid for it

Food is great, oxtail soup is "souper". Hearty servings. Atmosphere is 'formica table tops', lots of families, workers having lunch, etc. Not a luxury resort destination, definitely tasty food.

This place opens early so you will not miss your plane. Excellent breakfast specials, papaya, good hash browns and fresh poi. I couldn't ask for more.

Stopped here for breakfast before touring the island. Pancakes had a good flavor, plenty of syrup. The ham omelet was ok. They were out of hash browns at 9 am, had dry toast. Old place.

We were on our way to the airport and stopped for breakfast. The restaurant was very busy - but we were waited on promptly. My husband ordered and omelet and I ordered French toast - pretty basic. We did wait quite a while and others...More

They are open on Mondays but it is very home style cooking so I wouldn't say it's the healthiest place to eat .
