“Our favourite place in Waikiki ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

What a great find. This cafe/restaurant is reminiscent of the way the cafés-restaurants were when I lived here 20 odd years ago. Something you'd find on the north shore.
Great, fresh food & Local cheeses.
The Cobb salad is divine.
Make sure you try the corn sticks.
The staff here are so friendly, unpretentious and subtle in their approach.
The only down side is their wine list. Maybe a few more wines to choose from but saying that their mojitos are yum.

“Great alternative to eating at Hilton resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Stayed nearby at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and was tired of paying a high price for average food. Looked up Goofy Cafe on yelp and decided it was worth a try. We all loved it! Great tasting food and generous quantities made it a no brainer to return for additional meals during our vacation. Tried the grilled mahi mahi, loco moco, penne, french toast, eggs benedict, and bowl rider. All fabulous! And they do take out, too! Just make sure that you go early if you're dining in. It's a small establishment but very cute with lots of character. Would definitely come back!

“Love this place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

When ever we are in Honolulu, we like to eat breakfast here at least once. The food is good and we love the casual atmosphere. Lunch is good too, but we are usually out walking in the am and stop for breakfast.

“Cute, little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Very cute restaurant in Waikiki. Fell in love with their Loco Moco dish. The mixed berry honey french toast was delicious, too. Will return next time I'm in Hawaii!

“Sensational food ! Really fresh! Really tasty! And local which is a bonus !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I am from nz and am used to good quality food and find American food gross this place is the opposite it's fresh local and delicious great for dinner breakfast or lunch ( I ate here as often as I could!!!) way better than anything I have tried in Waikiki. Not at all artificial or synthetic unlike dukes (used powdered eggs yuck!) and the cheese cake factory that was revolting (an yet strangely busy. Don't know why?) can't go wrong with the menu everything is delicious I love the acai bowl and the pulled pork eggs Benedict!
