Great breakfast stop before heading out for Kona adventures. Great breakfasts at more moderate prices than other restaurants nearby. Not much on decor or ambience, just a friendly, local "good food" joint. Cash only.

Here is famous of pancake so every guest order. However fried rice is nice. It is different from Chinese or Japanese fried rice, but it’s allowed. LocoMoco style meet and scramble egg(not exactly scramble )is great combination. Not so cheep as you expect but try.

Had breakfast there with family. Small, waiting list, excellent food and service. Menu is one of a kind, can't find these dishes any other place. Only seats about 20 at a time. Very busy but definitely worth the wait.

808 Grindz Cafe is not a scenic restaurant in Kona. It's better. It's a small breakfast place with the best breakfasts you can get. While the tables, menus and overall decor are lacking, its true value is what is most important-food. My family and I...More
