Eggs ‘N Things (Oahu)

Eggs 'N Things (Oahu) pancakes

If you are looking for a breakfast spot in Waikiki, Eggs ‘n Things is a great option. You are likely not the only person to think that, and if any place in Waikiki has a long wait time to eat, it’s here. I’ve seen people wait 1.5-2 hours during average/brunch eating time.

Pro tip: if you want to try it but don’t want to wait, order takeout and eat on the beach.  Most of the time (yes, most), the wait is around an hour to be seated. You can make online reservations or even order online. (I recommend either of those before walking up).

They have a few locations, including Waikiki, Saratoga,  Ala Moana,  Ko Olina Menu, and even Guam. They also have an online shop to buy their pancake mix, totes, syrup, and more!

Eggs ‘n Things Atmosphere:

Located on the main strip of Waikiki, Eggs ‘n Things is located in a big blue building. It sticks out as a diner. The inside is small. There is a touchpad outside where you add your name to the waitlist. I have seen a few restaurants in Waikiki do this now.

One of the big reasons Eggs ‘n Things in Waikiki is so popular is the beautiful ocean view. If you’re lucky to get a window table, you’ll have a great beach view for your entire meal. While in Hawaii we went to Eggs n’ Things but the second time, we got takeout. We didn’t really feel like we were missing anything with takeout and the food was still the same as eating in the restaurant (seriously, have you been to a restaurant where the food is not great for takeout but so good while dining in? I know I have…).

I haven’t ordered coffee at a diner in a little while.

Eggs ‘n Things Food:

I was excited to try the Eggs ‘n Things menu. As the name suggests, they are known for their eggs and other breakfast items. A few Eggs ‘n Things menu items that caught my eye:

  • Plantation pork chop & eggs with grilled pineapple on top.
  • Rainbow pancakes with fresh fruit and whipped cream on top.
  • The morning wrap with a choice of bacon, turkey bacon, spam, ham, or Portuguese sausage
  • SPAM & green onion omelet (I had no idea SPAM was still popular until I came to Hawaii).

You can see the whole Eggs ‘n Things menu here.

Ultimately I decided on the rainbow pancakes, and I’m glad I did. The pancakes came with fresh fruit and whipped cream. They are not the most enormous pancakes I’ve had (especially for $20), but they taste good—some of the better pancakes I’ve had at a diner. My only complaint is they are kind of small for $20.

Eggs ‘n Things Service:

The Eggs ‘n Things staff are always busy. But it’s a well-oiled machine, and we received our food fast.

Cost: $

For my rainbow pancakes, it was $20. Everything in Hawaii is more expensive, and compared to other diners, this was a tiny portion of pancakes for $20. But it tasted good.
