Good service, good food and a great view. My only improvement would be hotter coffee. The coffee was good, but could have been warmer. Overall, a good experience :)

We managed to secure a table on the lanai with a beautiful water view - and were lucky to see some cavorting spinner dolphins. The server was full of praise for the "new" menu (which seemd remarkably like the one we had a year ago) and apologized that the kitchen was "struggling" with the new menu - fair enough. However the luke-warm coffees took 30 minutes to appear and the food almost 45 minutes - without another apology! And when it arrived it was well past warm and on the way to room temperature (not good for a poached egg and bacon). We let the server know of our concerns and he did "put some love" (a new word for service recovery I guess) on the bill! But come on DMCC - hire cooks who can cook and cook an order to be served hot and hire servers who don't leave food sitting on the counter. The environment deserves so much better!

We had breakfast here on our last day on the island. We sat right on the ocean's edge and enjoyed watching the surf generated by hurricane Lane. We tried the Loco-moco, Avocado smash, Classic breakfast and the Moa sandwich. All were plentiful and delicious. It was a perfect way to end our stay on Hawaii.

Authentic, original, affordable. My wife had the Puna Kine eggs Benedict and loved it. Add a side of pulled pork and your taste buds will be in heaven.
I had a classic local favorite, The Sam. Biggest fluffiest pancake with bacon and poached eggs. Add the coconut sauce and Wow!
Go here and enjoy.

PS: the bloody Mary’s rock.

Wonderful spot to eat breakfast or just get a cup of coffee. They offer table service in their restaurant or there is a coffee/danish bar that you can get your coffee and go upstairs to sit with water view.
