Cafe Kaila is a great restaurant for breakfast in Honolulu. Just check the reviews on Yelp and ask the locals. Portions are big. Food tastes great. Definitely a neighborhood gem.
Cafe Kaila is a very popular eatery do be sure to get there early because people literally wait on line for up to 30 minutes to be seated. If you happen to come at prime time, be sure to sign your name on the sheet in front of the restaurant and wait for your name to be called. If you’re lucky, one of the staff members will pass out samples of their food while you’re waiting. Pray it’s their waffles because it’s so delicious – crispy, thin, sweet waffles!
What to get? Their waffles are delicious. An added bonus: they are topped with fresh fruit.
Another great choice: the Local Scramble – eggs, cheese and your choice of meat scrambled with a side of fruit, toast, and roasted potatoes. I couldn’t resist getting SPAM – it added the right amount of saltiness to the scramble. A meal big enough to share with someone else, but it’s too good to share.
The French Toast is excellent here. Thick pieces of bread with the perfect batter. Get it with a side of eggs cooked the way you want it and you’ve got a wholesome winner. Oh, we chose SPAM again as the meat for the dish. So ono.
