So you're strolling along Waikiki Beach, feeling peckish from the morning exercise, and still want to enjoy a view of the water. You can eat an overpriced breakfast at one of the many hotels along the strip or relax at this rather funky little spot...More

It is casual eating at it's best. It is at the Diamondhead end of the beach. You can get anything from shave ice to a full meal. It is out doors which is a lovely setting. On Friday and Saturdays they host a BBQ with...More

From following this place on Instagram for months before my trip to Hawaii, to say I was disappointed is an understatement. I was expecting a proper cafe where you walk in and order for staters- instead it’s a walk up/hole in the wall. Secondly I...More

We really enjoyed our lunch here, after a 12 mile walk up Diamond Head and then all around the base. Great food - good service - wonderful outlook right on the water's edge.

Walked here from the other end of Waikiki. There are nice picnic tables to eat on. The breakfast was good but they charge for a cup of water which is a big turn off. The menu has variety. The service was friendly.
