Wailana Coffee House
Every city has one of these - it's been around forever and has become an institution. Located just across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village at the entrance to Waikiki, it does a brisk 24-hour business. Most folks say the breakfasts are the main draw here; the pancakes, waffles, and egg dishes are available all day and night. Try the Portugese sweetbread dipped in egg batter. The salads are also tasty, and the dinner specials offer great value.
This is the best breakfast spot on Oahu. I have the Hawaiian Breakfast (Eggs, Corned Beef Hash and Fried Banana) Great food, great value, and, although rushed, great Aloha Spirit by the staff. The wait in line is worth it.
The food is amazing, and so is the coffee. We live here, and we drive all the way around the island to go there for breakfast. It's totally worth the trip every time. Sometimes there's a little bit of a line outside, because it's so well known and such a good bargain, but it's worth the wait. Try their guava-filled french toast, or the eggs benedict.
Best pancakes on earth in a nice family atmosphere located just minutes from the beach. I lived in Hawaii for 4 years and took every visitor to at least one place during their visit. This was that one place.
Heres a little tid bit. Go to Wailana Coffee House bar on Thursday night. The bar is just to the right as you walk in the coffe shop.
I have never seen such a wonderful group of people in my life. Ron, the piano player sets the mood for one enjoyable evening. This little group has been meeting for years and invite on-lookers with open hearts, smiles, and enchanting stories. I sang, I held hands, I exchanged my own stories. I was invited back, and I pray I can return as asked. I can not explain the experience in words, but eurge anyone who can visit and sit a evening, to do so. My evening there was better than anything I had ever expected. I fell in love with the 79 year old spectacular woman who sang french show tunes like an angle. Or the jokes, about clapping. Everyone was majic. I'm telling you, visit, take notes, these people have it right. I will not miss anything more than my new friends there. Thanks for having me.

For those tired of paying for high priced and low value meals at the resort properties, then the Wailana Coffee Shop (open 24 hours) is an excellent choice. Breakfasts are very good and priced right. The dinner specials can be quite tasty and offer good value. Why spend alot of money on all of your meals in Waikiki when you can enjoy a few meals here and not worry abot busting your budget when presented with the check?
The people are rude and the price/selection is not that great.
I stood at the 'wait to be seated sign' for 5 minutes while employees at the cash register, 5 feet away, just stood there and talked and ignored me. Finally someone told me to grab a seat. The server was also very unfriendly.
I will definitely not go there again.
