This place rocks. Great Coffee and Great Breakfast burritos or tacos or whatever. They are huge and awesome. They have a number of different combos and we ate here 3x so it was really really good. People even get tattoos of their logo "a pig" just to get lifetime discounts they are so good!

We came here after in the afternoon during a rainy day at the North shore. We shared a sandwich and a salad with the pork on top. The pork was absolutely delicious and the best we had while in Hawaii. The place is casual with some indoor and outdoor seating. The service was great. We would definitely return!

Stopped here for lunch while visiting the North Shore and watching the surfers. Wife had the Bomber sandwich, which she loved. I had the old school, which was perfect. Pork was delicious and porky tasting, which we don't get much of on the mainland. The chips were great as well - not too greasy. We also got the lemonade with... More

My husband and I stopped here for a quick casual lunch after spending some time at the beach. It was late afternoon and not a lot of places were serving lunch. I chose this spot though because it got good reviews online and seemed more interesting than the other options in the shopping area. Both my husband and I love... More

We stopped by here on our way to the Zip-line tour on the North Shore. We both had one of their famous breakfast bombers - incredible! This place is worth seeking out! If you're headed to the North Shore, make sure you stop at Kono's!

Kono's breakfast Bombs are super tasty. I chose the Kalua pork and added avocado. Yummy. They have several varieties of these Bombs. All are huge and filled with potatoes, meat, eggs and served with a very tasty and spicy salsa.

We were walking along Hekili Street in Kailua looking for a place for dinner and decided to try out Kono's. What a great place! Small restaurant with limited seating but loved the casual and rustic décor. We got the Pork Rice Bowl (very tasty), the kids Pork Bomber (essentially the Pork Rice Bowl in a wrap!) and the kids Quesadilla... More

We were staying in Ewa but visited the North Shore twice. Lunch was so good we ate here both visits. Friendly staff. I got the Pulled Pork Plate and don't remember which wrap my husband got. The menu is on a chalkboard behind the front counter. Place your order and wait to be called. Don't worry if the line is... More

The food is special. They open just for breakfast and lunch. The coffee is delicious and no words for the burritos. Miss this place.

Reasonable prices, good food and value! Limited interior seating, not to busy on our rainy day visit.
