We had heard good things so we stopped here for breakfast and we were not disappointed! The line was kinda long but it moved pretty fast. We ordered a BEACH breakfast sandwich, a roasted veggie breakfast bomber and a kalua pork breakfast bomber...Everyone loved their food! The coffee was good too--i bought a coffee mug to take home with me.... More

Aloha! Thank you for heading to the north shore and looking us up. We do tend to get busy and even I am amazed at how fast the line typically moves. We're glad you enjoyed our Haleiwa location. We also have a location in Honolulu and will soon have one in Kailua. Mahalo! More

The breakfast burrito here is onolicious aka delicious! Filling and oh so tasty! Kalua pig, scrabbled eggs, fried cubed potatoes, and bacon all wrapped and ready to fuel on your day! They make a good salsa and it adds more depth to an already super breakfast! Eat here everyweek...okay a few times a week. It's that good!

You can't miss Kono's Restaurant. We read the other reviews about the breakfast burritos and we're so glad that we came. Ate here two days in a row for breakfast. Had the pork and bacon breakfast burrito with avocado, sour cream (comes with eggs and potatoes, etc). Pineapple hot sauce was good on top. Everything else looked great on the... More

Eat here. If you've always wanted to visit Hawaii, eat here. If you never wanted to visit Hawaii, Konos is now your sole reason to come and eat here. I went here with a large crowd of friends on a suggestion one morning and just ordered the most popular "bomber" (a breakfast burrito with potatoes, egg, and cheese plus your... More

If you're looking for a great, affordable breakfast, Kono's is the place for you! My husband and I stopped on our way to Waimea Bay Beach and got a bomber and breakfast sliders and were blown away by how tasty both were! Food was served up quickly and coffee was tremendous too. Would highly recommend!

Stopped here on a day trip after googling breakfast locations. Quick friendly service. Food was ready in good time even though they were busy. Best breakfast burrito ever and the shakes were also amazing. So thick and really yummy flavours. Would definitely eat here again, I highly recommend!!

This is a little hole in the wall that we visited for lunch. You order at the counter and eat outside on picnic tables. Primarily pork sandwiches but I had a turkey avocado melt that was delicious!
