Don’t eat here, the wait is like an hour, our food arrived cold, with soggy toast. The wife got the eggs Benedict, the avocado was hard and Unripe, everything else was cold, We would have walked out earlier, but we needed to catch a flight.

We ordered their pancakes with mac vanilla sauce to go (the only way you can get it now). When we took it to our hotel, wr discovered one order of pancakes was totally black and burnt. They were inedible. Additionally, their ordering system was very...disorganized. We called to place our order and the guy didn't even ask our name. The pick-up window was total confusion.More

This restaurant is not where Trip Advisor said it was. We stumbled across an empty store front in a strip mall. Did it move? If so, Trip Advisor needs to update their site. I tried calling the restaurant 5 times, no one answered.

This was a great, local, affordable breakfast. It is located in the strip mall but has some outdoor seating in Covid-times. Tasty omelette.

Great food, excellent helpful staff, it was easy to call in the order, go to site and pay, then pick up the food. We paid by card, it was easy and not questioning.

We have ate at this restaurant both in Maui and in Kona. Both are consistently good. We love their banana Mac nut pancakes! They are also very fast and reasonably priced!

First off they do have excellent food and prices. I've been there before. The reason for 1 star. When I checked their web site for their hours they show take out only and has a 4 step procedure for doing that. Step 2 says how...to pay with cash or credit card. I drove 5 miles for no other reason than to enjoy a take out breakfast there. Ordered by phone outside per instructions. Waited about 10 minutes for order. Then I was told CASH ONLY. I haven't carried cash for sanitary reasons since this pandemic began. End result, I had to go elsewhere to eat. Hope the staff liked what I ordered as I would hate for this meal to end up in the dumpster.More

This is one place that I wanted to try based on reviews however it was still closed. Lucky for us we checked the website one last time and it opened for order only the day we were leaving. I had the fried potatoes and eggs...and the macadamia pancakes. Soo good!More

We ordered take out for breakfast. The service is friendly and the food is good and filling. A little disappointed we did not get mac-nilla sauce for our pancake, but that won't keep me from writing a good review.

Yes, just wait outside. They're very popular, so it can be a long wait.
