This restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel. Reading reviews that said here is where the locals eat sold us. It is located in a small strip mall which is usually not where we seek to go. We were very impressed with the food. Portions were more than we could eat and the taste was excellent. I think we...

I had banana pancakes and the wife had eggs. Everything was just OK. I expected better from the reviews. Quantity was good. Quality was ok. Price a little high for what we got. About 11 bucks for one egg two strips of bacon and two banana pancakes

We always like to know where the locals go and we asked 3 different people and they all said you must go here! So we did!! We needed to have a "loco moco" and we both got it and it was delicious. How could you go wrong ;). It was super quick, super tasty and a good place to go... More

Quality of the food was good, not gourmet, but good - no complaints. The staff are very friendly and prompt. Place was full with... More

We asked about a restaurant for a light breakfast and someone recommended this small hole in the wall place. The food was great, cooked just right and just enough food to start out the day without being stuffed. The service was very good too. The gals took care of everyone and always had a smile and a aloha.

It is so hard to find good, affordable food on the island and this place has both. It's a tiny place, but the food is comforting and the atmosphere is simple. When we went, it was mostly locals. The portions are big, too.

Stopped in for breakfast and was taken by the wonderful food, staff and laid back ambience. Service was great, and we noticed many locals have their breakfasts, as well. price point was very attractive, and we would highly recommend this location for breakfast.

I had my first laulau pork here, and it became the meal by which all others were judged--it was superb, and I never found any other on the island that was this good. My husband had the macadamia pancakes and said they were good, but he's not a big pancake guy. The service was excellent, the staff very friendly. Not... More

I was referred to this restaurant by a local so I had high hopes. Unfortunately, it did not live up to its billing for me, at least on this visit. I thought the ambiance was lacking and dirty. The waitress could not have been more disinterested in working that evening. I ordered something called the Loco Moco -- a couple... More
