Description
A truly exceptional place to sample a variety of American cuisine with a distinct Hawaiian twist, this popular establishment offers up great 'ono grinds for any time of the day. They have a wide range ... Read more
of sandwiches and dinner options, all of which are consistently quality, but the main draw might just be their unique pancakes. Flavored with tropical goodness that can only be enjoyed at this quality on the islands, these specially prepared creations are about as tempting as they come. Their most popular and creative pancakes are likely the guava chiffon and red velvet varieties, both of which are mouthwatering and delectable. For a truly delicious meal in a warm setting brimming with 'aloha,' this popular restaurant has something for everyone.

Known for their guava chiffon pancakes. Be sure to ask their daily special pancake like lilikoi. Breakfast & lunch only!

Super friendly wait staff, amazing food, always a crowd. Expect to wait about 15 to 20 minutes, but you can visit the Manoa chocolate factory while you wait. And get a cinnamon roll for later when you place your order!

This restaurant was a great breakfast place! Cute, friendly and fast! My friends and I ordered the red velvet pancakes (heavy breakfast but delicious!), the Benedict omelet, and the farmers omelet.

We also ordered coffee with our breakfast. The coffee is a blend of 50% Hawaiian blend 25% Kona, and 25% Kauai (I think). It has a peculiar taste...just a warning.

Other than that, I highly recommend Cinnamon's!!! :)

Best red velvet pancakes EVER!! if you are in Honolulu you have to try this place. They also now have a second location right in the heart of downtown so you don't have to travel to the other side of the island.

I came to this restaurant while still in the womb back when it was still known as B.I.B.s!

You have to go for breakfast and eat the Egg's Benedict. Tip: Order the side of home-fries, add cheese, and ask for extra hollandaise sauce. Oh and get the Hot Cocoa!

The line is going to be slamming but the building Cinnamon's is located in has other vendors including an antique shop and the Manoa Chocolate Company, so the time will pass quickly.

They also have great Chicken Cutlet (topped with Gravy & an Egg!!!), amazing pancakes, and a wide array of specials. The portions are huge, the price is moderate, some of the servers have been there decades so this place is legit.

Do yourself a favor and go here. Your belly, taste buds, and memory will all give one big:

Mahalo!

Come early with a big appetite! You'll need both to fully enjoy a breakfast at Cinnamon's. It's very, very popular so expect a wait. The portions are generous, so you could probably get away with splitting an order of pancakes at the table in addition to something savory, as their red velvet pancakes were way too decadent for me to have as a sole breakfast dish.

One of the top shops for breakfast/brunch on Oahu in my opinion. Others have spoken about the red velvet pancakes; sweet and wonderful; the guava cakes are also delicious. The Hawaiian omelet was my choice and it's a great combination of kalua pork and lau-lau ingredients (leaves, pork, butterfish). I also enjoy the Benedict omelet which is an omelet version of eggs Benedict. This shop has a nice lunch menu, but I confess I've not tried any of their offerings. Expect to wait for a table, especially on a weekend; it's always crowded when I've visited.
-- Parking is in a metered lot right out the back side of the building; quarter per 20 minutes as I recall. If filled, there's public parking across Aulike Street at the same rate.

Pancakes pancakes pancakes. Just order yourself some pancakes. The plain buttermilk pancakes are awesome, but they're selling point is red velvet pancakes and guava chiffon pancakes. If you haven't been there before, that's what you need to order...or share, because they're pretty big (10"-12" diameter, stack of 2-3 pancakes).

LOVE the eggs benedict! If you're looking for a breadless option they have an eggs benedict omlette style! There can be LONG WAITS so be prepared. Don't like the red velvet pancakes that much since its more cake like than pancake and overly sweet.
