Hawaii’s food scene has a secret and you have to get up early to get it: breakfast. It cannot be overstated in the food scene of Hawaii. In many ways it is the unsung hero. Breakfast may not get talked about in the same way, but if you stop and talk to the local people, they all have a favorite breakfast place and the choices are infinite. Entire restaurants (and even chains of restaurants) are based in the morning meal. Whether it’s cutting edge creative, like Koko Head Café, or everday fare, like Koa Pancake House (7 locations), breakfast is a big deal and it’s all over the place.
