The Over the Falls was good if you are a bread pudding fan. The eggs were fine. Nothing fancy. The Mac nut cinnamon roll was good but be prepared to share. It’s big.

Our resort recommended this location in Hanalei for breakfast. It is small with some tables on the balcony. The establishment is dirty with simple plastic seating. We sat inside to avoid the morning sun. We could make better eggs at home. The menu is not...More
