Feeling a bit sluggish this morning? Well, Eggs ‘n Things is just the place to go to help shake the sleepiness away!

A breakfast staple in Waikiki since the mid-’70s, this specialty breakfast nook has the right combination of menu medley and shining staff to get your day off to a fantastic start. Host Eddie Cavett, who played a small role in the former ABC network series LOST, greets guests on some mornings with a tasteful energy that is as delightful as your morning coffee. And then the fun really begins as you gaze through the menu filled with options of omelets, pancakes, crepes, waffles and a variety of specialty choices, including Maui Pineapple Porkchop ($11.95).

Maui Pineapple Porkchop is a bone-in pork chop, smoked and topped with a light pineapple syrup glaze as well as a ring of fresh pineapple. Accompanying your meal are two eggs cooked to order and your choice of rice, potatoes or buttermilk pancakes.

“It is very similar to ham. The brown sugar and butter complement the saltiness of the pork. I think pineapple and pork go very well together,” says regional manager Michael Skedeleski.

Another Eggs ‘n Things specialty is its Pineapple Cheesecake Crepe, offered on the specials menu for $12.95.

For those interested in dinner, Eggs ‘n Things does offer a dinner menu (at its Saratoga Road location), which features Fresh Ahi Steak, Paniolo Loco Moco and a handful of specialty pancakes and waffles for dessert.
