This is a full order or Tropical Pancakes, a stack of seriously fat cakes topped with bananas, coconuts and macadamia nuts. But inside each cake is a layer of molten bananas and coconut. Top this with their homemade coconut syrup and you’re set.
Kaua‘i locals know how to eat breakfast. Check out the menu at Ono Family Restaurant and you’ll find that among American favorites like the Denver Omelet, Eggs Benedict and Florentine sit a Local Boy (Portuguese sausage with kim chee) and a Local Girl (Ono’s signature fried rice and kim chee).
And a real traditional Loco Moco, a local favorite. Or try the Meatloaf and Eggs, served with brown gravy and steamed rice. There’s the Captain’s Platter too, a breakfast dish with grilled fish — mahimahi, ahi or ono — and eggs.
At breakfast you can find plenty Portuguese sausage, pork in various other shapes, rice, hashbrowns and other foods to start your day. For the non-Kaua‘i locals, there’s always a stack of banana pancakes, sprinkled with macnuts and served with fresh slices of papaya and lime.
