Great casual place for a traditional American breakfast, with a Hawaiian flare. Service was good and fast, the food was excellent and the portions were ample. Be prepared to wait outside for a little while, as they are always busy. But tables turn over pretty fast. It is located in the corner of a small strip center near Hwy-1, and... More

We waited about 15-20 minutes to be seated on a Sunday morning, but sure glad we stuck around...the pancakes were amazing as was the veggie benedict...but the true highlight was the "special" pineapple upside down belgian waffle. Probably can't go wrong with anything on the menu! The staff was hospitable and attentive. We noticed there were also "picture" type menus... More

My husband and I visited this cafe after seeing a line outside their door the day prior. We came early, around 7:15a. We were seated with no issues. It did get busy and packed by 7:30 Our meal was delicious and priced well. The service was A+ Would recommend.

Read on the internet this was where the locals ate. Fantastic food and service. There will be a crowd. Breakfast was great, especially the pancakes and fried rice.

Maybe you experienced a wait at Café Kaila for that perfect table, but wasn't it worth it? Breakfast any time of the day, mixed with local foods and the freshest fruits. The staff (and owner) are always cheerful, and truly concerned that you enjoy your meal. I include owner with the staff because don't be surprised if she greets you... More

We first went to Café Kaila several years ago and were highly disappointed. Last weekend, we decided to give it another chance because it continues to get high ratings. We still don't think it deserves those ratings. Nothing tasted quite right: The Portuguese sausage was really odd and not tasty. The eggs benedict were nothing special. The service was mediocre....

Cafe Kaila is a good local breakfast spot with quality food. The atmosphere is cheery and the ambiance pleasant. The lines can be very long, but it worth the wait.
