No frills breakfast spot where the locals eat. The food is plentiful and yummy! The coffee is good. It's not fancy but you won't leave hungry.

This is a nice locals breakfast spot. You order at the counter and then wait for your food. Orders come out fairly quickly. We came here because my husband wanted macadamia nut pancakes and he wasn't disappointed.

The family which includes a 11 and 7 year old decided to go out for Sunday breakfast. We got there just before the crowd. We were able to find seating. Nothing special, but it's a place to go for breakfast.

Normally, we try to avoid chain restaurants, especially when traveling, but we heard such great things about this place that we decided to give it a try. Apparently everyone else on Oahu was thinking the same thing, because this place was packed with both locals and tourists when we arrived at 8:00 am. After waiting in line for about 15... More

Super breakfast and lunch place. They have every kind of pancake and omelette you can think of and the pancakes are easily 9-10" each. After you order at the counter, your food is brought to you within 10 minutes by smiling, pleasant help. Try the daily specials for breakfast or lunch - absolutely worth it.

Another place praised by the locals for reasons we don't know. Mt Wife had the Kalbi Beef breakfast which was reported to be plentiful, flavorful and cooked correctly. I had the loco moc with hash. In retrospect I should've gone to a grocery store, picked up a can of prepared hash in a can and a can of gravy, poured... More

Old style, small, near Pearl Harbor. The menu is vast. The food arrives hot. The portions are large. We had short stack buttermilk pancakes with bacon, and short stack blueberry pancakes with bacon. Worth a visit.

Omelets are fairly average. Home fries are dry and tasteless. Actually, they're not home fries at all. They're just baked potatoes cut up into pieces. The Pancakes are thick and fluffy and very tasty. I would go back for the pancakes.

We ate here after a visit to Pearl Harbor. The place had a constant flow of people. The quantity of food was a lot. Breakfast was good. They only serve breakfast and lunch. Not a tourist dive, they serve food for the locals.
