Breakfast in Waikiki

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to some experts. I’m really not a breakfast person. I usually like to eat just fruit and or yogurt for breakfast. What’s available in Waikiki?

The girls decided to spend a weekend at the Moana Surfrider playing tourists. There are so many choices of what and where to eat. Be sure to check out the tourists magazines because there are coupons for Denny’s and other restaurants.

We decided on Denny’s at the Imperial Hotel. Breakfast was so so. EP and I shared the country fried steak which came with scrambled eggs, hash browns, and an English muffin. The scrambled eggs were cold and the country fried steak was processed meat. The gravy was tasty. SP had an omelette which was made to order so it was hot. I mentioned to the hostess while we were paying our bill that the eggs were cold and she said that she would tell the cooks. Apparently, the scrambled eggs are prepared in advance and put in a warmer. I don’t think the warmer was hot enough.  Breakfast for the 3 of us with beverages with tip was close to $40.

The next day we had breakfast at the Hula Grill at the Outrigger Waikiki. The price was about the same but the ambience was so much better.  Hula Grill overlooks the ocean and it was just beautiful. The cost of the food was comparable but the quality was so much better. I had fried rice with a choice of an egg. EP & SC had eggs, country style potatoes, and choice of a toast. I can’t remember if they had any meats. Both said that the food at Hula Grill was better than at Denny’s. Our server was very friendly and attentive. I definitely would recommend Hula Grill.

If money is not an object, I would recommend the Sunday brunch at the Halekulani. The variety of salads, meats and breakfast items are fabulous especially if you like seafood. When I went for brunch they had Haagen Daz ice cream sundaes for dessert. Yummy…There was a 2 hour time limit but how much food can you eat in 2 hours and not be stuffed.
