This is a great spot on the edge of town. Fabulous waffles and a very attentive staff make it a "go to place" just about every day, wonderful breakfasts, not a tourist trap, a locals hangout.

If you are on the way to the North Shore stop at the Haleiwa Cafe for breakfast. It's pure local color-lots of surfers on their way to the waves. The food is excellent/my caramel pecan Belgian waffle was decadently delicious. The Cafe is always on our "return to" list.

Eat here at least once every visit to Hawaii. Great country, casual atmosphere. Come here and hang loose.

We left here about 9 a.m. on a weekday, and the place was filling up. The daily special omelet with fresh, young asparagus and an extra toast was perfect for two adults to share. The omelet was fluffy and perfectly cooked. Good coffee and service.

Very good serving sizes, delicious and nutrious. Service was fast and friendly, great local spot. It can get very full/busy at times, weekend mornings etc. Very minimalist in its aesthetics and medium in price for breakfast. Defimtly a must spot on the north shore.

We got there at 1:00 and they close a 1:30. The waitress we had was not friendly at all. At 1:15 she told 2 different families that they needed to go somewhere else because they were closed. The service was terrible. The only reason they get three stars is the food was good.

We had a pretty solid breakfast here prior to heading out to the North Shore. There is a good variety of food to choose from. I enjoyed the Breakfast in a Barrel and it filled me up for many hours.

We chose this restaurant based on very positive reviews and it did not disappoint. We arrived around 9:30 and were seated immediately in one of the last open tables. By 10:00, the place was packed with a long wait for a table. Great pancakes, good omelets, just good homemade food in a casual diner with a very friendly waitstaff. A... More

Café Haleiwa is just really good home cooked food. We had the quesadillas (egg, cheese, onion and mushrooms) with home fries. We also liked the fact that they sell local art which you can find hanging on their walls.
