Food was fabulous! Banana French toast is a must. Wait staff was beyond helpful and kind. They all take care of you rather than having one assigned waiter/waitress. We came here after visiting Pearl Harbor based on reviews we read and we were so glad...we did. I would definitely come here again!!More

Best customer service in the island!!! Best breakfast in Hawaii! Only had 15 min wait. Waitstaff and host are friendly, fun and moving at light speed to get tables ready AND WITH AN EXCELLENT AND JOYFUL HEART! They should train the restaurant industry!

Small unassuming shop front but the best service and food. Be willing to a wait 20 mins to get a table but our food was out within minutes of ordering. Waffles and Blueberry stuffed French Toast highly recommended

There is little parking. Service was great. Food was average. I was disappointed. I had the blueberry creamcheese stuffed French Toast. It was fine. I expected too much.

We enjoyed eating at this cafe and returned for breakfast several times. The food is tasty, abundant, and reasonably priced. The waiters are among the quickest and hardest working I have ever seen. We had to wait to be seated, but the wait wasn't long...and was well worth it. It is not a luxury restaurant, but a local cafe. We are so happy to have found it and are looking forward to eating here again on our next trip to Oahu.More

The blueberry stuffed frech toast was delicious! There was a small wait for a table (spring break week may have caused this) but it was worth the wait!

If you want a good local spot that has great food, great prices and great service? This is your place. We wanted good breakfast and didn’t want to spend $80. Saw this on Yelp and decided to give it a try. The food was great...and the service was excellent. There isn’t one waiter assigned to your table. They all help each other out which was nice. A very friendly environment.More

Good job on the meal and service. Service very friendly and helpful. Priced fairly. Four stars only because rest room(s) were rough.

Must visit for their delicious stuffed french toast, genuinely one of the best I've ever had, and other hearty breakfast options! Apparently it gets quite busy, especially on weekends, so plan ahead. We were very fortunate to visit when it was relatively empty during a...weekday at the beginning of December. Prices are very reasonable too, and service was friendly and attentive. I don't think my coffee cup was ever empty!More

I read so many great reviews that we had to try it, and we were so glad we did. The place doesn’t look like much but the food, and great service. Had the banana pancakes. Give yourselves a treat and check it out

This is a cute little dinner. They have inside and covered outside seating. I had the Hawaiian sweet bread French toast with fruit and my daughter had the bacon bagel sandwich. We also had a side of hash browns. It was all so delicious, I...will definitely be back. Not much parking, but that’s Hawaii. We parked on the side street just a short walk down.More

Sorry I'm just now seeing this. I don't remember, actually. But I don't believe it was more than U$10 per person.
