There are not enough words for this place!!We stayed at the Luana Waikiki Hotel that the Fish Hook Cafe is connected to. Both businesses were wonderful! The location of the restaurant was not only very convenient for us, but also so much more than we expected. We did try other places since it was our first trip here, but this was definitely our go to for breakfast. Most mornings I had the Breakfast Croissant and my husband had the Fried Rice Plate both were excellent! We stopped in for lunch one day as well and I had a delicious poke bowl and my husband had the Black Bean Chicken that was also very delicious and marinated perfectly.Besides the food being amazing, the staff was amazing too! Our first morning here we met Ki, he was fantastic and greeted every single person with a smile. We then met John, he was the exact same! They really make an effort to get to know you and why you’re here and remember you. They both gave my husband and I wonderful recommendations for things to do and we tried to do some of their favorite things!We will not forget the genuine connections made with them and their friendship while on our trip! Thank you both for a great start to every day we had here and thank you to the rest of the staff for creating the most delicious food we had the chance to try!! We hope to be back one day and see you all again!Mahalo ☺️-The Yorks

Amazing food. Very small seating area but pretty quick service and the food was excellent. My party of 4 had the mochi waffles, mochi short stack, French toast, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, bacon, blueberry muffin and coffee. Everything was amazing, except the muffin was your generic (from a grocery store package) taste. I would say the waffles are the best, but you can't go wrong with any of it!

Food is awesome!! Delicious breakfast, great ambiance, and staff is very polite. Jon is an excellent host, I felt like I was in my grandma's kitchen. Reza and Justin cook great food. I will be sure to visit next time we're in town.

Nice little place with delicious breakfast options. There's limited seating but you can pick it up and eat it at the park nearby. The staff was great too.

Photos don’t do the avocado toast justice - it was beyond delicious! Lime-y and citrus-y, the bread was toasted and the avocado fresh. It was a thing of beauty. The staff here were SO nice. We chatted and they let us know they teach Poke classes in the adjacent hotel but sadly it was our last day in Waikiki! Go here - you won’t regret it!

I had the garlic shrimp and yknow what it was pretty good. The shrimp was pretty big and slightly sweet with a green onion garlic mix of some sort on top. Was yummy on the rice. A lil pricey but worth the one time try. Staff was pretty friendly aswell!Got to watch the Kamehameha Parade from the window of the Cafe.Pretty humid in there thought won't lie. Small and quaint hidden by the entrance of a hotel!

Cozy spot with great coffee and food. For breakfast they have a nice variety of options (sweet and savory). I was recommended the croissant sandwich with Portuguese sausage, egg and hash browns inside, it was AMAZING. Obviously on the rich and hearty side but consider it fuel for a day of hiking/surfing/swimming :)It is a small space inside of a hotel so be prepared to do takeout if you have a larger group.

Loved this place!! We brought a large group (11) for breakfast. The server was awesome! Took orders for all of us by memory, didn't write anything down. Impressive. The food was great!! I ordered the Shrimp & Waffles and loved them. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was amazing. Slightly spicy. My wife ordered the omelette with a side of pancakes and over hers. My kids ordered off the "unofficial" kids menu and enjoyed coconut pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, s'mores pancakes and a the Wales with fruit. Incredible!! Make sure you order the coconut waffles. They were ridiculous!!!Service was exceptional! The location was gorgeous! The food, amazing! Two thumbs WAY up!!

The food was great and felt even more tasty with the friendly and very supportive service.
