Fluffy pancakes near Ko Olina

Great place to go for some reasonably priced pancakes near Ko Olina. The smallest size is already a lot of pancakes. We had macadamia nut pancake which was pretty good.

Ate here once on the basis that it is supposed to be a very good pancake house. Pancakes, eggs etc were average at best. Not bad, but a bit underwhelming. Paper plates and flimsey plastic cutlery. No real maple syrup. Coffee was not good. Order at counter and staff brings food over. Staff that was bringing the food had attitude... More

As a place billed 'the best pancake house", technically this was true. However, service was slow and wait staff was inattentive.

I first ate at the Wahiawa KOA Pancake house and then when I moved to Kapolei, I was excited to have the same, delicious breakfast place, with delicious, homemade food, and the most choices for breakfast that I have ever seen! Fluffy ono pancakes!! Eggs cooked just like you want it!

Went on a Sunday. Was crowded but most restaurants on this island are crowded. Fluffy,light pancakes. One of us had steak and pancakes. Steak was flavorful and tender. Omelet was delicious. Prices are great as well.

There is always a line and the place is small but the food is good. I have yet to have a breakfast that was not good.

This pancake house is located inside a shopping plaza. We went there on our first day in Honolulu for breakfast. We ordered the macadamia nut pancake and had it with their coconut syrup; it was SO good. We also ordered the mahi mahi benedict to try it out. It was good too but the pancake was the winner.

Went here on a friend's recommendation - not that impressed food just ok, inexpensive - and crowded - the budget conscious target market. Plastic cutlery and paper plates. Not a great place, but if you just want in-n-out basic food, this is the place.

We ate breakfast at KOA the first morning of our vacation. Our family of six each found something they wanted on the menu. The loco moco was delicious and the pancakes were huge.
