Although this establishment is famous for its macadamia nut pancakes, it's all about the SAUCE! I chose the Belgium waffle with the sauce...Heavenly!!! Started eating before the picture, sorry...kona coffee and Hawaii smoked sausage was wonderful too 😋

Delicious breakfast food with sports bar vibes. Very laidback place with great service. My favorite item there has to be their Macadamia Nut pancakes! I could eat a whole stack by myself!

If you eat here make sure you order the banana macadamia nut pancakes (YUM)! This place is known for the best breakfast! I tried 2 of their lunch chicken plates but was not as impressed. I love that they are at a new location with...more seating accommodations now. My 5 star review is based on their good breakfast and great staff!!!More

Went here for the pancakes with their famous macadamia nut sauce. I was not disappointed. I’ve never quite tasted anything like it; creamy and sweet with bits of crushed macadamia nuts. I had it over the fresh banana pancakes and it was the perfect combination....My friend had the blueberry French toast with a side of the Mac Sauce and said it too was delectable. There WILL be a wait here no matter when you go so prepare for it. It’s worth the wait! The decor is very plain however I did see they’re moving soon so maybe that will help with wait times and they’ll get more fun with decor!More

Old Diner food. Friendly atmosphere. Can get very crowded. You can order online. There are dedicated parking spots behind the restaurant where you can park and wait for your food. With the food is ready, if you gave them your cell number, you can get...a text then go in. Super convenient.More

Has good home cooking food and it's efficient as well, especially on the holidays when there's busiest! There were zero tourists line up onto the stylish patio waiting area. Such a nice little restaurant, friendly and genuine. I enjoy this restaurant. The omelettes here are...very good. Food is moderately priced and great. Overall very good!More

This charming and unique restaurant never disappoints. You can park across the street at Target's big parking lot. Be prepared to wait a few minutes to be seated, but it's worth it. The decor is chock full of sports memorabilia and the service is fast...and friendly. The banana pancakes with their special macadamia nut topping is great. My husband also enjoyed his omelet. Try it here, you'll be a returning customer for. It's really a cute place and a memorable meal. Their coffee is also very good. (I think it was cash only). but so what.... the prices were fine and the meal was very tasty.More

Went for macadamia pancakes. They were plain pancakes with a tasty, but cold, sauce with a few macadamia crumbles on top. The server said that if it was served warmed it would just melt into pancakes. Think I would have preferred that. Waited 25minutes. Will...definitely not return. Very noisy and crowded. $15.95. Coffee $3.50.More
