Great little "hole-in-the-wall" cafe. Awesome breakfast. Great coffee and nice place for lunch. Do not miss a chance to have a great brreakfast at this location, and remember to go early.

Arriving early to visit friends on Oahu's North Shore, we sought a local venue to have a little breakfast - and Cafe Haleiwa hit the spot! A true diner in every aspect, the service was pleasant and prompt, the food very good, and the atmosphere anything but what you find on Waikiki Beach --- in a good way. Just what... More

Came here for a quick spot before scuba diving in the North Shore and it was delicious and the staff was so nice. Would highly recommend to everyone.

Not even that busy of a day....but busy enough. Short staffed for sure. We were 5 deep and didn't even make it to the table. People sit and talk and don't move at this place so it must be great but I was hungry so I left. Couldn't wait another hour before being seated ....or even moving up in the... More

This is a great spot on the edge of town. Fabulous waffles and a very attentive staff make it a "go to place" just about every day, wonderful breakfasts, not a tourist trap, a locals hangout.

If you are on the way to the North Shore stop at the Haleiwa Cafe for breakfast. It's pure local color-lots of surfers on their way to the waves. The food is excellent/my caramel pecan Belgian waffle was decadently delicious. The Cafe is always on our "return to" list.

We left here about 9 a.m. on a weekday, and the place was filling up. The daily special omelet with fresh, young asparagus and an extra toast was perfect for two adults to share. The omelet was fluffy and perfectly cooked. Good coffee and service.
