It is well worth the 45 min - 1 hour wait. We have a macadamia nut pancakes, and it was the best pancakes I've ever had. You will not be disappointed.

We used to go here often for breakfast but it's gotten so popular, especially with the tourists, that it's tough to get a seat unless you go really early. It was Saturday and we decided to take a chance so went down at a little after 7am and there was NO LINE! We were seated right away and ordered the... More

We usually like to go here early to beat the crowds. We had the typical eggs and bacon breakfast with the Mac Nut and coconut syrup and the pancakes were outstanding.

We went to this restaurant based on a recommendation of a French travel guide and tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! We come in fairly late in the morning and we had a table straight away. We were able to order rapidly and our juices and coffee were served within minutes. We had to wait a bit longer to get our... More

The line is always long because the food is great, the service is awesome. We tried the shrimp avocado omelet and mac nut sauce pancake, yummy! We were told there will be 20 mins wait but we only waited for 7 mins, lucky day. Worth the wait, great music too inside :)

We decided to eat at this place after shopping at Whole Foods in Kailua. Got lost several times while walking because we took wrong turns. We finally found the place which is close to Target only to find out they already closed at 3pm! We went back on another day this time for lunch. I know people actually queue in... More

This is a sports themed, locally owned restaurant that is really popular with Japanese tour groups. They seem to serve mainly breakfast food but offer a lunch menu too. It's always very crowded and it gets pretty loud inside the restaurant. The food is good and the staff are friendly but if you want to eat here you either need... More

Located in downtown Kailua town. A local establishment with traditional and local Hawaiian fare. We were there for breakfast. Reviews highly rated it. We arrived right at opening at 7:30. The place was already half filled. By the time we left the lines were out the door--twice as many waiting as those seated and dining. So, get there early. I... More

30 minute wait for brunch was worth it, Mac. Nut pancakes were to die for. Also great service. Bring cash, no cards. The sausage was great. Plan on coming back for lunch. Suggested that we try the pork short ribs for lunch. Closes at 3 so plan on breakfast or lunch. We had the coffee and pineapple juice. Both were... More
