What a neat place with great breakfast. Stop here for breakfast or brunch on your way to the North Shore. Food was delicious. We had the "dawn patrol" , and "Off the Lip". Another in our party had the everthing bagle with grilled tomatoes and pesto cream cheese. The interior is brightly decorated with Hawaiian posters, art etc. The waitresses... More

Strawberry waffle and a side of Portuguese sausage. Delicious. Coffee not bad either. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly service, rustic decor. Would go again.

The food at the Haleiwa Cafe was very good, home style cooking. We traveled from Wakikki to North Shore our last day visiting the island and it was very early and we were looking for breakfast. This was one of the very few places open according to google maps on the path. The service was iffy, the waitresses barely acknowledged... More

This quaint hole in the wall had great food and friendly staff. It was packed with what appeared to to be locals but our wait was only 5 mins. Old Haleiwa has wood sidewalks so it's easy to get confused on where parking is! There is a dirt road near the Cafe, follow it and the parking is behind it.... More

Cafe Haleiwa serves up a very tasty breakfast, locally sourced ingredients where available, rustic ambiance (cool surf art, sagging ceiling in the back, unsaved parking behind) on the edge of the historic town, without tourist trap upcharges. Super cliffs pancakes, perfectly prepared eggs, sublimely seasoned home fries... yum! Large portions, good coffee, friendly, no nonsense service, and a great start... More

Sweet cafe, great service; excellent breakfast with truly American portions! Very down to earth, friendly and local. Everything I had was delicious, filling, and felt like a hug from the inside. Definitely a good fuel-up for your time in the North Shore area.

Great find for breakfast on the North Shore. Small cafe, could get busy on weekends. Decent sized portions. The omelets were delicious!

On our way to our shark adventure we were looking for breakfast. Found a brand new McDonald's and almost went there. We just happened to look across the street and saw this sm shabby looking local cafe. There were chickens running around , a stray cat , a broken front porch, and an outdoor bathroom. The pancakes were light and... More
