We went early and got right in, this place typically has very long lines, when we left the lines were out the door. The food is very good, our group loved the macademia pancakes, anything with strawberries and the rest of the food is good too, with generous sized servings.

We ate here on a recent visit to Oahu and were more than happy with our decision. The pancakes were fantastic and the service we received after we finally got a table was very fast and efficient. But, what you need to realize is that the place is very small and very busy so in all likelihood you are going... More

We have heard of the place, so tried it out. However, getting a reservation could be a challenge. My daughter had to line up around 9am and we gor called at 10:30:( The food was all good, servers courteous and very nice.

Incredible wait, but we were warned and took the time to wander around the shops across the street. Came back after an hour and were still nr 10 in line. The sidewalk was backed with people. Once we got in, service was very fast and efficient. We were starving and ordered too much food: 2 omelets, 2 plate lunches, onion... More

I took my family here when they came to visit. This place is a quirky, local hot spot. The line is usually long in this tiny restaurant, but it is worth it for there FAMOUS Macadamia Nut sauce pancakes!!! You need to get the banana filled pancakes with the Macadamia Nut sauce. It is out of this world, over-the-top, amazingly... More

Wait was 10 minutes, but it was worth it for the food. The pancakes with macadamia nut sauce were very good, so was the florentine poached eggs. This place would have 5 stars if it was not from the service that was just okay.

Very good recommendation from our hotel back in Waikiki. Place was on our way to Kailua Beach...Had breakfast here. Had the spam & cheese omelette w/fried rice. It was ok, probably not something I'd go back to order but had to try some spam while here in Hawaii. My wife had the corned beef hash w/side of rice & 2... More

We drove about 45 minutes to eat breakfast here. Not sure it was worth the drive, the wait and then to eat. The food was good and the service was good as well. We tried a few different plates here and all seemed to be good. The macadamia sauce they use on pancakes was divine and the pineapple sausage was... More
