Came here for our last meal before leaving Oahu. Small, unassuming place which made it hard to find. I could be wrong, but we didnt see any signs except for a small one on the front door. We got here around 9am on a Monday...More

I had breakfast there on a Monday morning around 9:30 AM, and there was no wait for a table for two. The food was delicious (especially the french toast) and the portions are ample. The waiter was efficient in taking our order, but his demeanor...More

A small local restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. Excellent food and service. Small place and usually a long wait for a table, but well worth it.

We stopped here after hiking Diamond Head for the perfect brunch refuel! Both our meals (the cornflakes french toast and the chicky and eggs skillet) were incredible, and it was a great, relaxed but still upscale atmosphere with excellent service. Definitely a place to try...More

A short drive from Waikiki, with a metered parking lot, this is a gem of a restaurant. The brunch options are divine here. We waited for 15-20 minutes for a table on a weekday morning. We opted for the Koko Moko and the Don Buri...More

Tucked down an unassuming alleyway, the Koko Head Cafe is a delight. I enjoyed the bibimbap skillet (with a crispy base!), iced coffee (plus a free refill) and the daily special - coffee bread pudding. All the food was wonderful, and the cafe has a...More

This restaurant is not "on the strip" but located in a more neighborhood-like part of the city. It is clear that locals come here. It's crowded, but only in a good way. I had an awesome omelette with fish and my wife had a skillet...More

We were expecting the wait, so the 20 minutes we ended up waiting was painless, if not a bit hot in the sun. As visitors to Oahu, I asked the waitress for recommendations and was not disappointed. The special curry dumplings were amazing and my...More

You will need a car or taxi as the restaurant would be about a 15 minute drive. The area in which it is located is kind of an interesting walk about as it has had a recent revival with restaurants and shops that you won't... More
