Breakfast standards with Hawaiian favorites. Pancakes are yuuuge. Corned beef hash ok. Interesting to see the Heinz Sriracha. Cash only A line can form, near a few shops to look around.

We always make it a point to visit here once we arrive on the island. They are a local establishment with great service and big portions. They are never disappointing. However if you arrive past 9am the wait is lengthy.

My brother took me here on my recent visit to Hawaii, and I absolutely loved my breakfast. Obviously everyone else does too as the place was packed. At first glance at the menu, the prices seem steep, but when you're finished with breakfast, or can't...More

Pancakes the size of your head! The haupai (coconut) pancakes are so good. All eight of us ordered our own meal, and we had enough food leftover for another full meal.

This local spot is where it's at. Huge portions, great for breakfast, a must visit for local-style food. I recommend visiting before 11:00 AM because they get busy and sometimes sell out of food. Located in downtown Waimea.

If you want true Hawaiian local food, this is the place. Their pancakes are huge and amazingly good. If you want LoMoc you can get it here too. This is a cash only business so come prepared.

The Hawaiian Style Cafe is the best restaurant value for the dollar on the entire island, in my opinion. I think the breakfast menu is out of this world, especially the pancakes and bacon. The only problem is the huge number of people who flock...More
