{Weekend} :: Tahoe or Bust

This past weekend was spent in Tahoe with friends. (Shout-out to Sarah from A Passport is a Girl's Best Friend

It was a nice quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

{food diaries} :: Eggs 'n Things, Honolulu


Let's talk brunch. It's the best of both worlds - you can get both breakfast or lunch, depending on what you feel like.

The hubby and I are big on brunch food. So, for the first full day we had in Honolulu, we decided to try Eggs 'n Things. Eggs 'n Things has three locations in Honolulu and went to their flagship restaurant on Saratoga Road. It was just a few minutes walk from the hotel that we are staying at. Walk score = 100. Everything within a one mile radius is walkable. (Note :: The restaurant name is also the same name as another restaurant in Camarillo, CA. But, it is not the same.)

Eggs 'n Things has been around since 1974 and was opened by Jerry and Jan Fukunaga. They wanted to use fresh ingredients, have reasonable prices and to treat everyone like Ohana or family. There is often a line outside the door, so they suggest on their website to get there early. We got there around 8:30 am and waited for maybe 30 minutes to get a table.

Specials from Friday
We kept ourselves occupied at their store while we waited for our table and to get away from the random sprinkling of rain, where they sell anything from placemats to stickers to coconut syrup to even kona coffee butter. I know! Kona coffee butter. We decided to get some goodies to take home with us on our way back to the mainland. Mostly, some coconut syrup for the hubby and kona coffee butter for me.

Samples!!!





The restaurant, itself, is located on the second floor of the building. Once you check in, you get a buzzer, and once it buzzes, you just go up the landing and be greeted by the hostess and brought to your table.

We ordered the following from their menu: Banana Nut Pancakes, Hawaiian Loco Moco, Kona Ice Drip Coffee and fresh POG. The little peanut also enjoyed the food that was ordered.

This place is definitely on my list of places to eat at, while in Oahu. For more information about Eggs 'n Things, you can check out their website here.
