  • Try the Banana Pancakes - Love love love #TipTop!!!
  • Loud, uncharming + none too clean. You're much better off @ Ono Family Restaurant if local flavor's what you're after.
  • No breakfast after 11:30AM. Banana mac nut pancakes are the way to go!
  • Try the Grand Slam - #GrandSlam w #GoteburgSausage (OMFG. LOVE IT!!) scrambled eggs, hash browns. First time eating Goteburg!!!
  • Ox tail soup is fantastic
  • Try everything pancakes (bananas, pineapple, macadamia nuts, and their homemade jam) delish! Less busy in the early morning, kind and attentive service and great for a breakfast on a budget :)
  • Loco Moco with fried rice! Then you add in a hash brown for crunch and Tabasco for a little kick! YUM!!!
  • if you just landed in Kauai and looking for a good breakfast spot.. this is it! fast and tasty.. look out for the chickens crossing the street. they are closed on Mondays though!
  • I prefer Ono Family Restaurant in Kapaa for breakfast, but if you are looking for breakfast in Lihue this is a good spot. The locals come here too.
  • Great pancakes. But if you like bacon make sure you order yours crispy. Toast was soooo good too. Yes the toast. @808plate
  • Great for casual breakfast/brunch. A local favorite.
  • The pancakes and fried rice are the best I've had.
  • Oh, and grab a bag of Cinnamon Toast Bites for dessert. Yum!
  • Tasty local fare at good prices. We split the Chinese Special and it was plenty of food for two.
  • This place is busy but well worth it! Ate here twice on our vacation and would highly recommend the loco moco and the oxtail soup. Now we can see why the locals rave!!
  • Killah Oxtail Soup
  • Amazing pancakes! Quick service and very affordable place.
  • Service is quick and friendly. Breakfast is classic and tasty.
  • Best Loco Moco
  • Try the Coffee - The sugar is in a container that looks like Mac Nut Syrup!! Love the service trolleys!!
