Cheap. Quick. Huge portions. I am the wife of a pancake lover - these rank with the best ever! A nice moment of local interaction away from the crazy tourist Mecca of Honolulu. Have reasonable expectations. Order at counter and pay with table delivery, but no other table service. Disposable cups, plates, cutlery as seems the norm on the island... More

This place has loads of great breakfast choices. They're relatively affordable and the portion sizes are great. Your order comes fast. Totally worth it for breakfast.

Your order is ready FAST! So, it's okay if there is a long line, you will get your food and it will be worth the wait. A lot of servicemen and women come to KOA because you will get a lot of food for your money!

While the parking situation may be a bit of a problem, honestly, just do yourself a favor and park on one of the side streets or in the shopping center a block away to the east, this place's fast service more than makes up for it. I mean it. It is FAST service. You can place your take-out or sit-down... More

I got the Fried Rice with One Egg and Spam. First time trying spam, and I wont ever stop eating it! The whole plate had great flavor, but honestly bad portioning between the three elements on the plate. Despite arriving with a large crowd, food came out very quickly. Pineapple juice rounded out the meal well! I was never intending... More

Not great. Just Ok. Strawberries in crepes not fresh, crepes too thick. Macadamia nut pancakes had barely any nuts. Bacon good.

Good food great service. The food was good but my wife is reluctant to say great (mine was very good at the very least). Extremely nice employees and service.

I had the KOA Omelet. The filling was good, however it was all in the fold of the omelet so it had to be spread out. You will be served on paper plates with plastic utensils. The homestyle potatoes are good, but they are just really big. I was wanting some crunch to them. My wife had the Eggs Benedict.... More
