Oahu Breakfast Bounty
1 hide detailOmelets in Waikiki
This popular breakfast-only eatery is famous not only for its great food but for its all-night hours (drop in at 3am and check out the clientele scarfing down the humongous breakfasts). You'll find the fluffiest omelets (which come with pancakes, potatoes, and toast), melt-in-your-mouth waffles (piled high with fruit and whipped cream), and hot coffee constantly being poured into your cup. Incredibly reasonable prices make this place worth standing in line for.

Every city has a Wailana Coffee House - it's been around forever and has become an institution. Located just across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village at the entrance to Waikiki, it does a brisk 24-hour business. Most folks say the breakfasts are the main draw here; the pancakes, waffles, and egg dishes are available all day and night. Try the Portugese sweetbread dipped in egg batter. The salads are also tasty, and the dinner specials offer great value.

- 2919 Kapiolani Boulevard
- (cross-street Kapahulu Avenue)
Located where Kaimuki meets Kapahulu in the Market City Shopping Center, this small breakfast café is a wonderful spot to gather with friends for a tasty and leisurely meal. Although both breakfast and lunch items are on the menu, this café excels at unique and interesting breakfast selections. By far the most popular is the breakfast wrap, an egg creation of everything breakfast should be, wrapped in a warm tortilla. The parking here is tight to say the least, so opt for the rear lot and walk or allow extra patience and time for one just outside the door. - Lottie Tagupa
