This funky kitschy eatery, bar and nightclub opens early to offer some of the best breakfasts on the island. Selections include eggs benedict, sausage and gravy, pancakes and waffles. Lunch offers delicious burgers and  sandwiches, all of which come with fries or salad. Dinner entrees run the gamut between steaks to chicken-friend steak, pastas, fajitas and more. The scene changes in the evening to live music and a lively bar that is filled with people from all over the world. Simply put, there is something for everyone at this tourist-laden temple in Kona. You can even book snorkel and sightseeing trips while you're there.
