“Wonderful Breakfast and Staff”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. I wanted to try the moco loco so the lady at the counter explained it to me and assured me it was delicious - she was right. Servings are HUGE so unless you have a large appetite, you should consider sharing with someone. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in HI!

“Great omelets and pancakes”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Ate breakfast here twice during our 2-week trip to Oahu since we missed the coconut syrup the first time around. Very good food and very reasonably priced.

You order up front, get the number (on the ticket), find a place to sit down, and they deliver the food to your table.

We had the omelet special both times (portuguese sausage, spinach, mushroom). Great choice of sides (3 pancakes, toast, fried rice, home fries) which we tried both the home fries and pancakes.

The omelets were huge (3 eggs) and very tasty. It was so good we had to order it again on our second visit.

My husband likes home fries a little more fried, but that is a preference thing. It didn't stop him from ordering it the second time so he must like it enough.

The pancakes were fluffy. We also tried the blueberry pancakes and they were great as well.

The coconut syrup and orange syrup are at the counter near the order desk. We like the coconut syrup better than the orange.

The place gets packed, but the tables turn over quickly. They do a lot of takeout business as well.

We will definitely be back. It is a great convenient place to stop for breakfast after the Makapuu Lighthouse walk.

“Great cheap food, best value in Oahu!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Ate here for lunch, but it's typically a breakfast joint. It's a breath of fresh air that the most expensive thing on the menu was $8.45. And not to mention the food was great. We had a BBQ chicken plate, and a BBQ beef plate, great choices for $6.50 a piece. I couldn't finish it because of all the food they gave me, and both were really tasty. I'd totally recommend KOA pancake house if you are looking for a great, cheap breakfast, this is the place.

“Best breakfast”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Had to wait a few minutes, but well worth it! Appeared to be lots of locals there, so we knew it was a good recommendation from a local. Try their Portugese sausage.
