We went for breakfast before going for a hike. I got the buffet and my wife ordered a breakfast meal. Both of our meals were bland and we both disappointed, at least we had some calories to burn for the hike.

This is one of Hawaii's best kept secrets, and yet zillions of people pass it every day. The rooms are only for rent to active or retired military, but the cafeteria and gas station are open to anyone. Come early to eat (think it opens...More
