I've had breakfast at the Hula Grill, it's nice (it's above Duke's at Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach). The views from the balcony tables are great!

It depends on what you are looking for. I think the Hula Grill is nice, but no where near as good as Orchids or Azure or even the Hau Tree Lanai for ocean front dining.

The Eggs n Things is great for breakfast, but so is the Wailana Coffee House and a few other places. As to late night dining I think Wailana and Zippy's would be better, but it depends on how late you are talking.

Prince Court is a great buffet if you are talking about dinner, but it might be the best because there are just not that many. We also like the Willows for lunch and Orchids or John Dominis for Sunday Brunch.

Legends is very good dim sum, we also like the Royal Garden as well.

Thanks for the replies,

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast so i am looking for a very good breakfast place. Where something different is served not the basic eggs and bacon, pancakes etc...

My brother is more into buffets I think mainly because of his budget, where as I believe if the food is good and worth the $$ then Id be happy to pay. Plus I like to get different ideas to bring back with me lol.

John Dominis has more lives than a cat. It was supposed to close two years ago for redevelopment, but the soft economy put the project on hold. It supposed to be open until sometime in Nov., but I am hopeful it gets another reprieve.

Good breakfast places are Duke's, Eggs n Things, Wailana Coffee House, Zippy's, Sam Choy's, Lulu's, KOA Pancake House and Original Pancake House. And if you get up to Pearlridge Shopping Center, Anna Miller's.

I need a healthy breakfast, so I usually go to Perry Boys (Smorgy) on Kuhio so I can get my oatmeal, fresh fruit, salads, etc as well as the other standard fare. DID I JUST HEAR THEY CLOSED ?????

The last Perry's Smorgy in Honolulu closed maybe a month or so ago. A lot of people rejoiced at the closing because they didn't like the food, but it served a population with low cost food and lots of it. Not everything in Waikiki can go high end.

Eggs N Things is good, but as stated, I don't know if I would consider it the "best" late night place. It's mostly breakfast food (eggs, pancakets, etc.), so if that's what you want to eat late at night, then it's not a bad place. But then again, late night might be the best time to go there because it gets very crowded in the mornings! It's a little pricey, so I would rather go to Wailana Coffeehouse or Zippy's.
