Inside resembles a hospital canteen (maybe it is?) or old people's home, not that there's anything wrong with that but I wish I'd known so I didn't get disappointed. Food was not very interesting but okay considering the price. You can pay with credit card now. You should come for the beautiful views from the balcony, but for me it... More

Our friend works at Queens Hospital in Honolulu and knew about this place which is located on the property of the new hospital extension. It is very nice, casual not fancy. The views are fantastic. You order at the window and they call your name. I was hoping to get the catch of the day, but it was already sold... More

The pancakes are great. Everything is great and reasonably healthy. The salads that come with burritos are really good!

We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews but were disappointed by the quality of the food. We had an ahi steak and a Huli Huli chicken dish. The chicken was not very good lots of skin not much spice fatty. The ahi tuna dish was marginal at best. Worst of all 3 hours later one of us got... More

I loved my banana pancakes and my boyfriend had an omelet that they made to order. This restaurant is at the health center which has beautiful buildings overlooking the ocean with gardens around them. And we ate breakfast to the sound of ukuleles and singing! We were also there the same day the farmer's market was open and were able... More

Well worth seeking this out for lunch if you find yourself on the west side of Oahu. Really friendly service and great fresh food. We have a pulled pork sandwich, the catch of the day - seared Ahi, and a big salad, all for just $20. The standard of food was fantastic, proper high end restaurant quality, and the view... More

I like their food and staff. Great folks and the very best view in Waianae. I sharpen their knives so I get to see that view every month or so. My favorite is the kailua Pig sandwich. I also love their bread pudding. I had that when they were at the Kailua Farmers market. Again great staff and terrific service.... More

If you are on a budget, or need to feed a troupe of kids in a no frills setting, where, in this poorer area of Oahu, you've found your spot here. Short order-style meals ordered at a pass thru to the kitchen are eaten at plastic-covered long tables by older locals and families on their way to and from the... More

Friends and relatives are always wondering how we can afford our trips to Hawaii and this place is one of the reasons. The Café is actually the cafeteria for the staff and clientele of the Medical Clinic/Health Center in Waianae. Although the clinic itself is on the main road, the café is not advertised so unless you're local or you... More

When visiting Ko Olina for a few days we were told about this place by someone. It's well hidden within a medical clinic complex, off of the main road. We had breakfast. Very good food, and quite inexpensive. Order at a window; eat at nondescript tables in a big open area. Or, better yet, take the food to go, walk... More
