The breakfast was ahmazing! Banana pancakes were to die for and so filling I could never eat it all. The prices were ok too, Oahu is expensive so paying $60 for 5 peoples breakfast is a great deal! Great little eatery, I recommend it! We even ate outside under the canopy.

This might possibly be the best hamburger I have ever ate. This is a hidden gem in Oahu. Close to the north shore. The total food menu here is outstanding and huge portions. Try a double cheese burger and fries bet you can't finish it. Superb place for a burger

Papa Ole's came highly recommended by several locals we met at our condo, and they were right. Terrific service, good variety of options and the peanut butter roll was amazing.

Okay if you are looking for "fancy" this is not it. If you are looking to be waited on then this is not it. If you are looking for fantastic food then you are at the right place. I had the Kalbi ribs prepared medium temperature. Oh My Gosh they were soooo good. There aren't words to describe how great... More

Omelette was ok. Macadamia nut pancakes were really good. Problem is you are served on paper plates with plastic utensils. Not my idea of a good place to ear.

Local food found in North shore Oahu. We decided to eat at this place Saturday night which could have been a mistake because the wait was too long. Most of the patrons were locals and a few tourist like ourselves. It is located corner of a small strip mall. A few tables inside but most of patrons were eating outside... More

Went on a Sunday, so maybe that made it even more crowded than normal. I felt food was very good, I think my wife was a bit dissapointed. The wait may have changed her opinion on it.

Thank Eric P
