My family tried this place out bc of the reviews and the 50 first dates movie. We went early so there was no wait. Parking is only on the street so if it gets busy, pretty sure it would be a problem. I had the loco moco. It was good, not great. My wife had the corn beef hash which... More

Read so much about cafe so obviously wanted to seek it out while on North shore. What a waste of time. It's a small hole in the wall off side street. Not fancy and not friendly service at all. Plates are made of foam. Steak was disgusting. Super thin and medium rare is definitely RARE. The only thing good was... More

First note this is a cash only restaurant. They are closed Sunday and Mondays and close at 2pm. It's a small very old restaurant that feels kinda dingy. Food is served on paper plates. The service was great... the breakfast food very average. I had the porkchops, they were thin and tough, plus homemade fried potatoes. My husband had the... More

It's local. It's a dive. That is what you get. Food was ordinary. The place was very dirty. They are cash only.

Breakfast and lunches are very good. Small casual place, limited seating. Staff was very friendly. Closes at 2 pm. Prices are very good, worth the visit.

This is the place, if you want "The Taste of Oahu North Shore". Was not disappointed. Had the Moco Loco, now that's a meal. Daughter had the veggie omelet great, wife had the fried rice and eggs superb. This will be a go to place every time we come to the North Shore.

I was a little disappointed with this café. We ordered a variety of food from omelettes to French toast. The omelette, though generous were not tasty, neither was the side of potatoes. The French toast was much better in my opinion. They have an odd self-serve water system going on which is fine, but talk about cutting corners. We never... More
