Part of a complete and balanced breakfast! Vegetarian/vegan friendly Veggie Targine prepared with local, organic veggies in a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern spiced stew on a bed of couscous with an egg cooked any way you like. No egg=vegan. #meatlessmonday #vegetarian #vegan #brunchallday #kokoheadcafe #onolicious

- 5starThe banana-poi
cakes with sour cream and guava are a spiritual experience . Everything there is good: I went back a secon...d time. First time I had the Hawaiian-s tyle pancakes, local coffee, and passion fruit juice. Sublime. Second time I started with the banana-poi cakes and also got the breakfast bibimbap, the best mimosa I've ever had, and the local coffee. Everything there is stunning, but I cannot praise the banana-poi cakes enough.
On my deathbed, when I'm thinking about things I've done that I regret, I'll cheer myself up by saying, "At least when I was in Honolulu, all those years ago, I ordered the banana-poi
cakes at Koko Head, so I have that going for me."
There are four breakfast places in the world that are worth a plane ticket just to go there: Clinton Street Baking Company in New York, Lokma in Istanbul, Casa de Gretha in Buenos Aires, and Koko Head in Honolulu.
This place is one Obama visit away from being impossible
to get into. Go now. If it's not breakfast time, and they're not open, cry, then cheer yourself up by promising yourself to go there when they do open.
I suppose I should mention that the service is also very friendly. The wait staff are all personable
, funny, knowledgea ble, and helpful. I'm sorry I didn't get around to writing about them until now, because the first bite of those banana-poi cakes stopped time for me. When I remember that first bite, I suddenly lose the ability to speak English. That's how good they are.
Excuse me, I have to go now and start founding a major world religion where the banana-poi
cakes at Koko Head are the communion.
