Orchids is located in one of the finest hotels in Waikiki, Halekulani Hotel and is a treat for the eyes and the palate. It has earned an impressive amount of awards throughout the years.

The seafood preparations are made from the catch of the day with the finest local products. Reservations are a must to dine in Orchids.
This award winning bakery/grill/deli has gathered a lot of interest because of the variety of meals, sandwiches and sweets. Plain and almost sparse from the exterior, the interior starts buzzing at dawn with early risers looking for award winning breakfasts, coffee and more. Lunchtime brings the beach crowd who clamor for the yummy turkey and chutney sandwiches. In the evening, area residents stop in to get out of the heat and eat specials like grilled salmon plates coupled along with great service. - Lottie Tagupa
This is that spot that makes ex-islanders dream of home. It's just a cramped small food stand in Kapalama with no parking and service that can be abrupt and rushed at times. But locals and ex-locals know that their specialties like garlic chicken will make your mouth water thousands of miles away and decades after your last bite. So pray for a parking spot before you arrive and have your cash out and appetite ready. - Lottie Tagupa
Even though it's not fancy and it's self-service, this modest award-winning eatery has won over the stomachs and wallets of island locals. The setting is more functional than fabulous with faux koa wood paneling and a few vintage wall hangings in keeping with the tropical theme. Seating is an abundant mix of tables and booths. The menu is endless and everything sounds yummy. Everything comes with three pancakes—don't forget the special coconut syrup—and everything ranges from scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage to Portuguese Vinha D'Alhos egg omelets. The prices are super cheap, and the place is super packed, especially on Sunday mornings. - Lottie Tagupa
