What a wonderful breakfast spot. Some of the best pancakes we have ever had. Loved the guava chiffon pancakes and the pancakes with coconut syrup. Friendly staff. Enjoyed it so much ate there twice on our visit to Oahu!

I enjoyed the food here, and the waitress was really friendly and had good service, however; this was just another average American cafe/diner. I had the Hawaiian omelette which I really enjoyed, just don't come here expecting to be blown away. Also, no wifi for overseas travellers

I'm a simple person so got the pancakes with a different kind of butter because what I wanted to order they were out of. It was a popular breakfast item and they will sell it until they run out. My friend ordered eggs benedict with crab meat and absolutely loved it.

We went around 11 and there was no wait. The carrot cake pancakes were quite good but the devil's food pancakes were like 2 real chocolate cakes on a plate. Very rich and a little overboard for breakfast. Perfect for dessert! Hawaiian omlette with kahlua pork was good. Great service and good coffee.

The wait staff seemed like they wanted to be somewhere else but the food was pretty good. And it was considerably cheaper than our hotel (hilton Hawaiian village). The pancakes are HUGE and cozy different syrups. Worth a try. even if you have to walk a little.

Enjoyed our breakfast here and the service was great! The Loco Moco with brown rice, brown gravy and tender roast beef with an over easy egg was very good! The portion was huge! The pancakes were also very good and were even better topped with the macadamia nut butter! The only disappointment, the coffee!! It was extremely weak, watery and... More

Don't let Cinnamon's exterior look turn you off. This restaurant was very nice inside. We enjoyed our delicious breakfasts (Crab Cake and Eggs, Vegetarian Bendict) with very good coffee and teas on offer. We highly recommend Cinnamon's. Get there early or wait in line. This place is popular, with good reason

Cinnamon's seems to be both a local and tourist favorite. The place is busy, but the service was satisfactory. Prices are reasonable considering this is a popular spot with the tourist crowd and the food is pretty good. Worth a try.

For me no trip to Kailua, HI is not complete without at least one trip to Cinnamon's. The food is always great, today it was chef's special recipe crab cakes Eggs Benedict. We upgraded to the guava chiffon pancakes. They were lighter than air and the guava syrup was perfect, not overly sweet. If I lived here I'd be there... More

I had never tried carrot pancakes before but if you enjoy carrot cake, you'll love these pancakes! I also tried the buttermilk pancake which was good and a side of sausage. My husband had the eggs Benedict with a cup of coffee. Our total with tip was around $35. Not bad for a heartier breakfast. The service was fast, efficient,... More
