Koko Head Cafe

A Worth-the-Wait BrunchThis casual spot, opened by a contestant of the first season of "Top Chef", appears to be a new favorite among local foodies. Get there early -- or bring a book or a chatty friend -- as the wait for a table can be an hour or more long. It's worthwhile, though. Order a number of plates to share - the plates will seem small compared to all of the plate lunches you've been eating in Hawaii! We had miso smoked pork and onion omelette that had us researching how to make heavenly fluffy omelettes for the rest of the day. The cornflake French toast was also perfection.
