A quick review for a great breakfast/lunch place. Breakast is awesome! Been going back here for ever. It's out of Waikiki 5 minites, but worth finding. Enjoy... Ken.

Went there for breakfast and loved the place. I ordered pancake with egg and bacon and enjoyed it a lot. The lady who served us was very friendly and made us feel like an aunty's house.😁 BTW, for the parking, we used a building next door and paid a couple of dollars.

I've been patronizing the "O" since my first visit back in 1977 in Dolton, Ill. So I tend to have high expectations. This location did not hit my high mark; although the food was good. The apple pancake was a bit smaller that 'usual' and a bit overdone, the dark undercrust was tough. Apples and dough were shy, and the... More

Let me first say that neither my wife nor I are breakfast people. Honestly, neither one of us really even like pancakes, but we decided to go to the pancake house because of some reviews I had read on TripAdvisor. We were really happy we went; so much that we went back the very next day again. Simply put, we... More

Friend insisted I try the Poi Pancakes but turns out it's only served at their sister restaurant in Kalihi on Dillingham Blvd. Served with Lilikoi Butter. Mind Shattering.

This restaurant has been around forever. So have some of the waitresses. It is difficult to account for its popularity. The pancakes, omelettes and waffles are OK but nothing special. Yet there is quite a wait on weekends. It must be the kind of a charm of old Hawaii before all the glitz.

We got there early (7:30am) just in time before the line started out the door. It’s in an office building, by the way, so don’t pass it by. Decided upon this place after reading about the Apple Pancake and Dutch Baby and just had to go to experience it and I’m glad I did. My husband had an omelet which... More

Their pancakes, banana, was delicious. Wish they serve freshly made hashbrowns instead of those processed refrigerated ones. Service was prompt and the servers were very friendly.
