Small, cozy place, frequented by locals. The food is excellent, breakfast as well as lunch, prices begin at $6.95 up to around $14. We ate there 4 different times this trip, never disappointed. Closes at 2:00.

Family and I ate here twice during our 4-day stay on the Big Island in July. Lots of locals eat here. Tried the fried rice loco moco and it was so good I ordered it again on our second visit. Service is very good and friendly. The place is small so you may have at least a 15-minute wait unless you get there early. They only serve breakfast and lunch and close early in the afternoon. It is in a strip mall a little east of the Kona downtown area. Parking was not a problem. We didn't try the pancakes with the macadamia sauce, but the ones being brought out to other customers looked yummy. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for a reasonably priced, local diner type breakfast or lunch.

Our first morning in kona and we were all starving for some delicious island breakfast. 808 Grindz did not disappoint! I has the eggs florentine with freshly grilled ahi my wife had the Maui Wowie omelette, the girls had pancakes and waffles. We all agreed: best breakfast food. And the staff friendly and courteous. We will be back.

Great breakfast stop before heading out for Kona adventures. Great breakfasts at more moderate prices than other restaurants nearby. Not much on decor or ambience, just a friendly, local "good food" joint. Cash only.
