Heard this was the popular spot in the area. Waited for an hour which was absurd but heard food was good so we waited. There's a menu outside on the wall so we ordered right away as soon as we got seated. Pancakes with hazelnut dressing were delicious. Eggs & potatoes needed salt. My daughters food was way late and... More

We went for breakfast. The pancakes mac nut sauce on their pancakes was pretty good. We also ordered an omelette which was good but nothing special. Overall a good breakfast but I'm not sure I would go out of my way to eat here again.

Get here early! We arrived around 7:30am on a Saturday and the place only had one open table. When we left about an hour later there was a line of people outside waiting. You must try the pancakes with the macadamia sauce. It doens't matter the type of pancakes just get the sauce on them. We ordered the banana pancakes... More

Hubs and I went here based off TA reviews photos. Great choice! I had bacon breakfast; he had banana macadamia pancakes. Everything was fab! Large menu makes it tough to choose. Reasonable prices and large portions.

Very busy restaurant. Came for breakfast - plate was heaping with food. Plenty of wait staff kept checking on me. Food was very good and came promptly even though the room was full of patrons

My husband and I got their early since we didn't want to have to wait. But after tasting that macadamia pancake I can see why folks don't mind waiting for a table. Our eyes were definitely bigger than our stomachs. We each ordered a plate and decided to share a pancake but I think we could have shared one plate... More

Even though Boots & Kimo ranks high on the list of "must places" to chow down for breakfast, take my advice and keep on walking. Better yet, take a hike somewhere else. Don't get me wrong. I love breakfasts - big hearty ones. But B&K has been over-rated and over-hyped for years, well before it made its move to a... More

My son lives in the area and he suggested eating here before we went to the North Shore ... said he had never been here, but there was often a line and it had good reviews. We both had omelets - they were good, but not great. I had fried rice as my side... loved it! We also split an... More

We came here with friends on their recommendation. We had the pancakes with macadamia nut sauce (their specialty) . SOOOOO GOOD! Little bit of a wait but well worth it,
