This would have been a five start review, as the food was outstanding. A couple of things that brought down the rating was the luke warm latte we received, and service was not as attentive or timely as it should be. We had no problem...More

We visited this place twice during our stay, we loved the breakfast options that they had, prices for the area were average since all is expensive in the island here , highly recommended.

A gem of a place hidden away in Kaimuki. Had a great baked egg dish and my wife a kind of noodle breakfast option. Both were delicously flavourful and well presented. Highly recommended, only a stones throw from Waikiki but a world away!

You will need a car or taxi as the restaurant would be about a 15 minute drive. The area in which it is located is kind of an interesting walk about as it has had a recent revival with restaurants and shops that you won't... More
