Really friendly staff, great food and lots of it. I'd give a 5 if parking was better and they weren't cash only.

Great place for breakfast. Loved the pancakes and Loco Moco (best gravy). Limited seating and street parking. Cash only so plan ahead. It’s worth the wait and parking challenge. Check it out.

Local extremely friendly cosy cafe. It became one of our main places to visit in Laie. This no frills, no nonsense cafe.

There is nothing fancy about this. Food is brown, hot and plenty of it. Great loco moco. Great pancakes. This is THE breakfast place on the North Shore.

Awesome service and food. They have regular pancakes which my son loves. Daughter and I love their coconut pancakes it was awesome. We tried their spam and egg breakfast sandwich (we never had spam before) it was good. The following day we came and tried...their egg n cheese breakfast sandwich was really good. During our 7day vacation we ate 3time would have been 4 but they had a funeral and was closed.. overall place is fantastic.More

Walked in in the rain and stood by the door. Server mumbled under her breath about standing in the corner and we walked right out! So rude!

Stopped in for a breakfast, self serve water and no real drink menu. The eggs were cooked just as ordered over medium. Having a hard time wrapping my head around all the rice on the island. The pancakes were cooked well, the butter and syrup...were good and the coffee was good as well.More

If you are going cuz you think this is the cafe from 50 First Dates know that it is not. It looks nothing like the one in the movie. It has been on the Food Network though and man versus food. Are portions are very...great. The prices are very cheap. It's a family-run little cafe off the beaten path. I tried the Moco Loco which is a local favorite. This thing had a rice bed at Salisbury steak and gravy on top of it with onions mushrooms and a fried egg on top. It was awesome but I can only eat about half of it. And it was only about $10. Service was awesome. Parking is pretty nonexistent. You can park along the road but there's only room for maybe five cars on the two roads is that this is on the corner of. I parked at the beach across the street and walked about 70 80 yards to get here. The food is good and it is catering to the locals. So you can get your local Vibe on here. Highly recommend itMore

You will love this little local restaurant, for breakfast or lunch. Just plain good, local cuisine and very friendly service. I ordered the Loco Moco and it was delicious (and plentiful). Get here early, they close at 2 PM!

Was staying at a hotel nearby and decided to find a local breakfast place. This one is oerfect, the staff is great the food taste and portion sizing is great. Go early to avoid waiting too long in line. That being said we did have...to wait one time but it was a short wait time. Cash only.More
