AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The menu is short, you have to order at the counter, and the food comes with plastic silverware. So why is there always a line at this tiny shack at the foot of Crystal Pier? It's the food, bro, plus the view and laid-back attitude. Surfers fuel up on Kono's bountiful breakfasts before and after riding the waves, while fans watch the waves from tables on the pier. Unless you're famished go for the Little Breakfast: eggs your way, wheat toast, and home fries mixed with cheese and green onions. The Big Breakfast #1 includes eggs, potatoes, English muffin and yummy vanilla-scented French toast that's so good you should consider getting a full order on its own (the fluffy pancakes rock as well). Skip the burrito, burgers, and sandwiches. Breakfast is served till closing (3PM Monday-Friday, 4PM Sat. and Sun.). Have someone in your party hover over a table while you order—seating inside and out is limited.
