Pretty sure we were the only tourists there! The staff was extremely friendly, food was delicious. Go for the Loco Moco! I had no idea what it was but it sounded delicious, and I was not disappointed. If i happen to find myself in Kailua again, I am definitely coming back.

We had a good breakfast at Cinnamon's. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food was excellent, BUT, the coffee tasted so much of chlorine that it put everything else off. You know how important coffee is in the morning, not a good way to start the day. My suggestion is to use filtered water, it may cost a tiny... More

Compare to the other local places for breakfast you won't find anything better. This place treats you like ohana (family) the coffee and eggs Benedict are great, pancakes are also good as well as everything else. I say this because I try the other places.

We went here as a group of 5. The service was excellent and we all ordered a variety of things to try. The Red Velvet pancakes were like eating dessert. The short rib loco moco was insanely good. I would go back and eat this again every time. One of my companions had the crab cakes--I thought they were just... More

In addition to the red velvet pancakes and pumpkin pancakes, there is quite a variety on the menu that we were able to order several delicious items and share. Good location with friendly and courteous clientele. A must stop when in Kailua!

Sundays are BUSY!!!!!! Otherwise breakfast, brunch and lunch are my favorites. Too many great dishes to mention!!! However Eggs Benedict regular or vegetarian stand out!!! Family owned and operated in Kailua. The new location in Waikiki is still undiscovered and a completely different ambiance. However the indoor/outdoor layout and lack of crowds make it a go to for catching up... More

Worth the wait for breakfast! We went on a week day so only had a few minutes wait. Great food! It was within walking distance to many shops so it is easy to make a morning out of the visit

We went to the location in Kailua. The atmosphere is very warm and friendly. The portions are HUGE. We had a couple of their omelets, they're 1/2 the size of a football. Each can easily feed 2. They're famous for their pancakes. We had the red velvet and the guava pancakes. Each was delicious and huge. Just be aware that... More
