Have loved this place since they were at Kilohana Square. Have waited to write a review since opening up down the street. Been here a few times since their relocation, and service and quality of food has not changed (that's a good thing). The wait staff are very attentive. Unfortunately, I always get the same thing-the stuffed french toast which... More

Conveniently located to Waikiki near the top of Kalakaua this local breakfast Mecca was a great find for us, although we'd heard about it for years from family. There was nothing not to like. A great menu, friendly, courteous and efficient staff, great service and delicious food served promptly at a very reasonable cost. The only reason I withheld a... More

Great local breakfast cafe! Wonderful selection of breakfast items with really super fast service! We stopped here before we left to the airport on our last day in Hawaii. Highly recommend this place!

This food is amazing. I am in love with the blueberry and cream cheese stuffed French toast. It is like a tastegasim in my mouth. I can not recommend it enough. The breakfast burritos are tasty too. I try to come here every other month. Why not more you might ask, well I do live in Hawai'i and I got... More

Breakfast for the 4 of us was ~$75, however we left completely stuffed. Portions were enormous and delicious with a local twist on the menu. Always a good sign when there are as many locals eating there as tourists. There was a wait outside for tables, so get there early. The modern decor inside definitely does not match the outside...

First timer and now long time loyal fan. Food was awesome. Had the Hawaiian Breakfast with the fried rice. Could have eaten just the fried and been satisfied, but what's the fun in that. Friendly and fun staff. Casual, friendly, and family like environment. Loved it!

Great place for breakfast & brunch. We enjoyed the French Toast so much we had to go back twice! The first time we went during the beginning of the breakfast rush and waited 30 mins and the second time we went early morning without a wait. I would recommend this place to anyone but keep in mind the wait can... More

We enjoyed Sweet E's for breakfast so much that we came back a second time during our seven day vacation in Oahu. My husband ordered the Kahlua eggs benedict and I had the lox bagel. Our meals were fresh, flavorful, and reasonably priced. Plus, service was friendly, I would definitely recommend Sweet E's for breakfast!

I have been a patron of Sweet-E's since it was in Kilohana Square and was thrilled to learn it had upgraded its space. My favorite is the corned beef hash benedict w/fried rice!!! The hollandaise (which most know is tricky to get right) is an awesome complement to the savory hash. What is also amazing is the waffle! I am... More
