Breakfast burritos the size of a baby! Cheap. Good. Long lines but moves fast. Also serve lunch. Closes early afternoon. Make several visits per week while vacationing there.

This is a great breakfast beach spot. They have indoor and outdoor seating and if you get lucky you can snag a table overlooking the water. The line I think is always out the door and around the corner, and it took about 30 mins...More

My husband and I had big breakfast #2 and burrito #1. Portions are really big so consider sharing and having an extra plate for .75. Coffee was mediocre and OJ was bottled but food was good. Cash only.

We had breakfast here, you get a lot of food for the money. Their egg dishes come with milk & cheese by default but you can customize them to have them held out.

Standing in line waiting to place your order is part of the Kono culture. Amazing how fast they deliver your order - it's not a "fast food" establishment but can turn out your order within five minutes of ordering. Great service and food
