Had an amazing breakfast here this morning. Very thankful this little gem is close to our hotel. My husband and I shared an omelette and fruit bowl. Sharing was perfect if you wanted a smaller portion

A fifth grader can make a grilled cheese sandwich, this restaurant can't. The "grilled cheese" had a few shreds of shredded cheese and when I asked for more they brought it back, completely backwards (bread on backwards). Plus it wasn't grilled. I felt as though...More

My husband is the breakfast guy but this place won me over. I'm still thinking about the DaBoss scramble. Everything else looked great too. I noticed the man at the next table licking his knife. I'm pretty sure he wanted to pick up the plate...More

The decor was nothing noteworthy. The restaurant seemed clean. The wait staff were very attentive. Plenty of options for food...anything from breakfast to lunch. Food was good. Husband had an omelette while I had a teriyaki burger. Nothing noteworthy, but good and relatively inexpensive.

We stopped here one morning breakfast. One of the foods I wanted to try was mac nut & banana pancakes. Food was very good as was the service also. Restaurant is a little small & there isn't AC, but there were ceiling fans.

I had the Loco Moco. Delicious. Wife had the french toast with strawberries on top. Yum. Best, ripest papaya on the planet. Atmosphere is very dated and kinda typical island-style but the food is worth it.

Wear rubber gloves when perusing the menus, they are disgusting. Come on, guys, clean the place and paint a little. It could only improve the ambiance. I have visiting for 25 years, and will keep an eye on when I can enter again without losing...More

Forgot about the second question. I cannot say for absolute certain ( I have only been going there since 1996), but I think that there was a menu item called deuces wild, which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon or sausage... More
