We’ve tried for years to eat here, but today was our first time. I’d say it was worth the wait. The guava chiffon pancakes really were heavenly. And sinful at the same time. Mac nut cinnamon roll was fresh and decadent. Husband’s steak loco was...so ono. We’d go back, but will eat inside, as kids were running wild outside.More

Went for breakfast and got there early. They sat 15 of us and the waitress was very helpful and always ask if we are good. I do recommend this restaurant for their customer service and food. I do suggest go early because it fills up...quick and there was a long waiting period. Then after your full, you can go upstairs and visit the surfboard shop and walk down to the chocolate factory.More

Food was great but this is not a place to have a quiet breakfast. It's very busy but they can move tables quickly and offer friendly enough no frills service

The cinnamon rolls are homemade, along with everything else. It’s busy but I had the best breakfast I’ve had in a long time. Very good service, too.

Stopped in last night and the service was soooooo slow. Gave it another chance, here right now, service is slow again. Just told by the waitress that due it being Friday. Cant only stay for drinks. They're too busy and need to serve dinner to...other guests. The place is 3/4 empty. Stay AWAY. Food isn't great. Plenty of other places in Waikiki that have great service and good food. Wait time last night 35 minutes to have order taken, then almost an hour before the waitress came back. today 23 minutes before anyone came over. Another 15 minutes for beverages.More

This is a fun little restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Standard breakfast fare, excellent french toast, and FANTASTIC cinnamon rolls, always with perfect and friendly service.

...and is available to take home whole bean or ground. Staff treated us like locals. Get there early it's busy, and for good reason!

As we stayed at the Ilikai Hotel where the restaurant is located, we had 2 times to visit. One for evening breaks, the other was for a dinner as our concluding dinner of our one week stay. For evening breaks, we had their signature pancake....The four layer tasty pancakes with Guava based sauce was really nice. With a cocktail of Chichi, we had a wonderful evening with a nice sunset view and a live music. Having a dinner there was also a very good choice for us as we didn’t have to drive and reasonably priced menu with great sunset views and live music.More

This place has gone downhill: food was bland and meat was fatty or overcooked. Service and outdoor ambiance was still good, but we probably won’t return.
