We ate breakfast here 4 out of 5 days on vacation. The one day we at somewhere else the kids begged to go back to Konos. Don't let the line scare you...it goes fast. Their food is awesome and the staff is great! Check out their coffee bar next door. We loved it too!

Was more hopeful for this place. Had the wheat French toast and it was just ok. Family had bagel and muffin and was just ok. Probably good place for a fast meal prior to surfing but not a great place for great eats.

To say this place was amazing is an understatement! We contemplating just eating there twice during our trip. The food was AMAZING and full of flavor and large portions.

Yes there may be a line, but it moves fast. The price is right. TIP: places to sit outside across the street oceanside.

If you've ever seen Kono's, you know that there is always a long line to get in. Most of the time, I never had the patience to wait. Well, last weekend the line wasn't terribly long and I finally got to have breakfast there. I had a breakfast burrito about the size of my daughters head. Okay, that might be... More

Portions are huge so order accordingly. Everything tasted great from the simple pancakes to the extreme breakfast. Should have been five stars. Would have been five stars but they like so many others use paper plates and plastic ware.

This is the spot for breakfast! Definitely get there early as there's always a line (it's that good!). Very affordable and cash only! Enjoy breakfast looking right at the ocean! It's the best.

This is a wonderful little spot. I ordered the Little Breakfast and was surprised with how big it was, the employee just laughed and said, "You should see the Big Breakfast!". Great service!

A must for breakfast in PB. Beware, the line quickly wraps around the building and up the street as soon as they open. Great place to grab a breakfast burrito and eat on the beach!
