Don't look for anything special here. It's just a typical coffee shop, similar to any you'd find anywhere in the USA. The food is fine, given those limitations, and it's a nice place for a quick bite.

Zippy's provides many different American and "local" (ethnic cuisine which have been adapted to Hawai'i's multi-cultural residents) dishes, some better than others.

We ate here after discovering that Cousin Mo's was closed. I had a spaghetti with meat sauce and chicken combo. Very inexpensive and mediocre quality. My wife had a burger, which was disappointing. Overall not recommended exempt for the cheap prices.

Typical plate lunches very popular with locals. Used to live in Hawaii so HAD to have Zippy's!! We had Teri Beef, fried chicken, chili frank. Can't seem to find macaroni salad like that on the mainland. Good portions, but a little more expensive than mom and pop plate lunch shops.

It's above average for what it is.... A chain restaurant halfway between a Denny's and an AppleBees. Food at this location was good. We asked locals where to go for a good bowl of Saimin (like a top ramen only way more exciting and delightful!). They said Zippy's without hesitation. Friendly service and patrons as we spoke to a few... More

You can always count on Zippys for any kind of local meal as a family or for 2. They have the restaurant style and the casual dinning. Service is usually quick and the portions are half or regular sizes. Prices are very reasonable. Napoleon bakery is located in Zippys so it's convenient to pick up and go or pre order.... More

Wonderful breakfast. I had the fried rice (very flavorful and not greasy) and sausage with egg. My husband had a perfectly ripe papaya and our daughter had the loco moco which looked and tasted excellent. Very busy. Great service.

Zippy's is a great island mainstay. When you need cheap grinds you go to Zippy's. They have a great variety of semi flavored goodness. One meal is as forgettable as the last but they aren't bad. My favorite dish is the tofu burger and a big bowl of veggie chili. They are also a great place for hangover food. The... More
