Go for the cheesecake. Really, just go for the cheesecake and you'll be happy. The wait can be ridiculous, like two hours on a busy night ridiculous, and if you're in Waikiki well there are plenty of other more attractive places to spend two hours than waiting outside on a bench holding a little buzzer thingy, and shaking little buzzer thingy when you start to panic and worry that maybe outta the whole bunch you got the "junk" one, and holding little buzzer thingy up to your ear to listen for a beep and saying incantations over little buzzer thingy, like "come on buzz already will ya? Please?!" The food is o.k.. Kind of just a really long, long, long, long list of American style cuisine. You can get good sandwiches and salads and pasta dishes but I haven't ever had anything outstanding-- other than the cheesecake. =) The environment is loud and busy but fun. Weird but true... the beautiful marble floors seem a bit too slippery, ( I always forget to remind myself to &quot;not&quot; where heels there), 'cause I feel like I'm at risk of sliding in to home, and taking out a few frazzled waiters on the way, each time I take a trip to the ladies room. Go for the fun environment/ night out in Waikiki and, of course... for the cheesecake. Which really, the cheesecake is to die for and is worth every second of the wait and mediocre service and the slippery floors if you have a die hard sweet tooth. You know, if you want you can actually just march right up to the glass case and order a slice of any cake to go and cop a squat on famous Waikiki Beach and enjoy the night, minus the buzzer thingy for company of course.
I have just come from MacDonalds on Beretania. There is nothing wrong with the food. I always go for my senior coffee and the new mango/peach pie. The problem is management. Do you not train them to help their workers? This girl did not know how to enter coupons that 2 kids and their mother were using. The girl kept waiting for help, and there was only one line @ 7pm and everyone in line was getting mad. I had to yell at her manager t get over and help her. Why are your restaurants always short staffed. Why can't they call in workers to help. I had the same experience at the Waialae Rest. that has since closed to remodel. Again a women manager was barking out orders to employee's that where in the back of the work area. I really got upset to hear her keep yelling out orders rather than go back there and talk. I started to walk out but went back and asked to talk to her. I told her I was upset hearing her yell and everyone was looking at her. She apologized but I said she should know better being a manager. Are these people on power trips? Its so low class. Get your act together and start training these people. If this keeps up you're going to lose clients to the other fast food. Their coffee is just a good and they are right across the street.
My family had breakfast there this morning. The Hawaiian French Toast was delicious and worth trying. The toast was light, and the fresh fruit (banana, pineapple and papaya) made it an amazing dish. Someone else in our party ordered the Dark Chocolate French Toast and loved it. We also ordered a bowl of Acai with granola, strawberries, bananas and blueberries. It comes chilled and was refreshing. It's little place, upstairs from a small souvenir stand. Almost missed it walking image area. Glad we didn't. Will try it for lunch, and possibly dinner too.
