Since Ko Olina is such a small area, it can feel like the dining options are limited – and that’s not wrong. All of the Ko Olina breakfast spots are in two places – in one of the hotels or in the one small shopping area – which can make things a little tricky if you’re staying in Ko Olina for a while.

Luckily, I’ve wrapped up all of the best places to get breakfast in Ko Olina – even the ones that are hidden away – so you can have many incredible options for your morning meal. So whether you’re hoping for a fancy brunch buffet at La Hiki Kitchen or a casual breakfast bite from Farm to Barn, you’re sure to find some great meals to start your day with.

1. La Hiki Kitchen

Price: $$$$

Breakfast Hours: Daily breakfast (buffet and a la carte) from 6 am –10:30 am; Sunday brunch buffet from 11 am – 3pm.

Address: Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, 92-1001 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

Located at the Four Seasons Oahu, La Hiki Kitchen is widely regarded as one of the best brunch buffets on Oahu. Only offered on Sundays, this mid-day spread has quite literally everything you can dream of. Get fancy with lobster tails and prime rib, go for classic egg dishes like benedicts and omelets, or opt for some sweetness with freshly fried malasadas and ooey gooey sticky buns. Add ocean views into the mix, and it really can’t be beat.

If you can’t make it to La Hiki Kitchen on a Sunday, don’t worry! Their weekday (and Saturday spread) is incredible too. They have your standard continental breakfast, complete with coffee, juice, yogurts, fresh fruits, and pastries. But it’s really the a la carte menu that stands out on weekdays, with dishes like the brioche French toast with mango compote, the spicy Latin American-inspired breakfast burrito, and chimichurri-topped avocado toast.

2. Hokulea Café

Price: $$

Breakfast Hours: 6 am – 2 pm

Address: Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, 92-1001 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

After Island Vintage Coffee closed its doors in Ko Olina, Hokulea Café became the go-to coffee shop. And I’ve got to say, it’s just as great as Island Vintage Coffee used to be, if not a little better.

Also located within the Four Seasons Oahu, the Hokulea Cafe serves up a delicious array of coffees and easy-to-take breakfast items each morning. Pair your morning cappuccino with an egg and pork belly English muffin sandwich. Or maybe opt for a freshly baked chocolate croissant with a latte on the side.

Regardless of what you choose to savor, you can either grab a table in the Hokulea Café’s ocean view seating area or take your items to go on one of your Oahu or Ko Olina adventures.

3. Farm to Barn Café & Juicery

Price: $$

Breakfast Hours: 8 am – 6 pm (all-day breakfast!)

Address: Ko Olina Center, 92-1047 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

Farm to Barn is one of the newest additions to Ko Olina’s restaurant scene. Its original North Shore location was so successful that they simply had to expand. Luckily for Ko Olina visitors, that means more farm fresh breakfast options to choose from!

The smoothies, bowls, and toasts are at the most popular bites at this Ko Olina breakfast spot. There’s even a fun ulu (breadfruit) waffle on the menu, which, to my knowledge, you can’t get anywhere else on island.

Through it all, Farm to Barn stays committed to sustainability and sourcing locally. There are even some hydroponic plants growing in store!

fancy smoked salmon on toast breakfast. Longhi's is arguably the best place to get a seafood-focused breakfast in Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii.

4. Longhi’s

Price: $$$

Breakfast Hours: 8 am – 3 pm

Address: Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club, 92-161 Waipahe Pl, Kapolei, HI 96707

Longhi’s is one of the fancier breakfast and brunch spots in Ko Olina. It’s where you should order seafood-focused plates and brunch-friendly cocktails. Crab cake benedict with a pineapple mimosa on the side, anyone?

In addition to the food, Longhi’s offers a beautiful view of the third Ko Olina lagoon. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to a tasty breakfast with an ocean view on the side?

5. Off the Hook

Price: $$

Breakfast Hours: 6 am – 10 am

Address: Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, 92 Aliinui Dr, Kapolei, HI 96707

There are a few different places to get breakfast at Disney’s Aulani, but Off the Hook is my favorite of the bunch. It’s casual, it’s tasty, and it has great views. You can get a fun coffee drink and a meal all in one go. If you’re looking for something sweet, opt for the sweet bread French toast. Savory food lovers, the three-egg omelet with your toppings of choice may be calling your name.

As you can imagine from a Disney hotel restaurant, Off the Hook is also particularly family-friendly. There’s a dedicated menu section for kids (which is essentially the same as the adult menu, but with smaller portions and cheaper prices).

Off the Hook’s breakfast service does end pretty early (10 am). But if you miss out on that, they do have a pretty epic lunch menu as well, with things like French dip sandwiches and huli-huli chicken.

*Note: If character breakfasts are your thing, you’ll want to head to Makahiki. The food isn’t all that recommendable, but you will see some of your favorite classic and island Disney friends!

6. Eggs ‘n’ Things

Price: $$

Breakfast Hours: 7 am – 2 pm

Address: Ko Olina Center, 92-1047 Olani St #1-101, Kapolei, HI 96707

If you’re looking for a classic, casual breakfast, Eggs ‘n’ Things might be your Ko Olina breakfast restaurant of choice. It’s got the shiny wooden tables, the little salt and pepper shakers, and a big ol’ squirt bottle of ketchup. It’s where you can get your banana pancakes, your cheesy omelets, or your traditional eggs benedicts.

But Eggs ‘n’ Things also has some fun locally inspired dishes as well. Some of the longest standing items on their menu include the Hawaiian loco moco, the plantation pork chop and eggs, and the fresh fruit rainbow pancakes (usually topped with fresh papaya!).

BONUS: My Café

Price: $$

Breakfast Hours: 7 am – 2 pm

Address: Halekuai Center, 563 Farrington Hwy, Kapolei, HI 96707

Located in the nearby area of Kapolei, My Café technically isn’t in Ko Olina. But since it’s just a ten-minute drive away, it’s easy enough to get to by car – and it’s more than worth the tiny bit of extra effort.

Every dish that I’ve tried at My Café has been delicious. The kalua pig and lomi tomato omelet? Yum! The chilaquiles? Delish! The trio of cookie butter, lilikoi (passion fruit), and taro pancakes? My favorite! While they do have some classic breakfast and brunch options, the “fusion” or island-style dishes are where My Café really shines.

All of that said, be sure to get to My Café a little earlier than you’re hoping to eat. When they first opened, there would be hour-long lines out the door on the regular. Now, they’ll have 30-minute waits on peak days, so mentally prepare for those! They unfortunately don’t take reservations.

And that’s a wrap on where to get the best breakfast in Ko Olina! Hopefully this gives you a whole lot of restaurant options to start your day off on the right foodie foot.
