Pancakes were very good...Service was very good...Staff was very nice. It was just like having an American Breakfast. I only had pancakes and eggs...pancakes were very large, could only eat maybe 1 and 1/2. Would recommend it...It is old but it was clean.

I visited this restaurant 20 years ago with my step-father who was living in Hawaii. It great to bring my kids to see that not much has changed. Still Koa wood walls and decor and delicious and huge pancakes! I recommend sharing :).

Went in for a great breakfast. Lots of food for the price. Pancakes the size of the plate and a short stack of 3 really fills you up. Try the coconut syrup. Interesting, but good.

Waitress seemed disconnected to serving clients. We had to flag manager to get our order placed. Restaurant was not busy, She was the only bad part of being there for breakfast. Ezekiel was our food runner and should be a waiter. He was helpful. My guest was in a wheel chair, I thanked him as he assisted guest into his... More

Frequented by local families for many years, this small comfortable restaurant is all-booth seating, first-come first-served, some waiting 15-20 min. isn't unusual if you dine on the weekends or holidays. Try eating before 8:30 am on a week-day and your wait will be usually minimal, if at all. Large fluffy pancakes, big waffles, and crepes are what Koa House is... More

This is a little off the beaten path, but worth finding. Mostly local people and very busy. Short wait, wait staff very friendly and food comes out fast and delicious. I am not a breakfast person, but enjoyed what I had here. Price was reasonable. Take time to check it out.

The pancakes are big and fluffy, the portions are generous. I took my brother and his girlfriend there for their first time and they enjoyed the flavor and amount of food. Everyone left content. I also enjoy the Koa wood walls, and the seating makes me feel comfortable while I enjoy my meal.
