This functional, no-frills place doesn't put its money on pretense; rather, it offers good, solid fare and warm, efficient service. Morning fare will make you smile, especially if you love savory standards like perfectly fried bacon, yummy egg dishes, and fluffy pancakes, tinged with tropical fruits and nuts. If you're in the mood for something a bit more exotic, try a bowl of oxtail soup. It's fragrant, steaming, and a great diversion from run-of-the-mill dishes. Relaxing and delicious. (808-245-2333)
