Dolce De Leche ($13)

YogurStory on Keeaumoku Street has garnered a wide fan base of breakfast and brunch lovers with its splendid collection of Asian-infused cuisine. Over its eight years of operation, its offerings expanded to provide lunch, dinner and a full service bar.

While many come for the eatery’s sweet breakfast crazes, like ube pancakes, and hefty protein portions, like juicy prime rib, Yogur-Story also offers an array of savory vegetarian selections that will satisfy even the most unyielding eaters.

Pope Eggs Benedict ($14.50)

A great place to start is with a dish that never disappoints — pizza. Enter the hearty and satiating Roasted Vegetable ($16). This oozing pie is baked with mushrooms, tomatoes and zucchini that seep out desirable juices while crisp bell peppers, onions and arugula augment the overall flavor. The light marinara sauce offers a perfect sweet-to-salty ratio, with the melted cheddar cheese bringing out classic indulgence.

For those stopping in for breakfast, chow down on overflowing goodness with Pope ($14.50) Eggs Benedict. Roasted zucchini, yellow squash, red peppers, onions and sauteed mushrooms lie under a pillowy poached egg waiting to be popped. Pesto hollandaise and a hint of balsamic blanket this desirable stack that rests atop a fluffy English muffin.

Red Carpet Waffles ($13)

In addition to its classic and pesto hollandaise sauces, YogurStory further presents spicy hollandaise with its crab Benedict, and bacon hollandaise with its seared pork belly Benedict.

Whatever time of day guests decide to drop in to this charming restaurant — that, of worthy mention, decorates its coffee mugs and certain utensils with cutesy smiley-face characters (see pizza cutter handle) — they can indulge in YogurStory’s delightful waffle and pancakes selections.

Customers can sink their teeth into decadent creations such as Dolce De Leche ($13) and Red Carpet ($13) waffles. If bits of pecan crunch, a creme brulee banana, and whipped cream all drizzled in a caramel and cream sauce sounds absolutely dreamy, then Dolce De Leche is surely the choice to go for.

Meanwhile, making up the Red Carpet is a creative taro cream cheese whipped cream that gently perches itself on top rich red velvet waffles featuring chocolate drizzles and white chocolate barks.

Stop in for any of these palate pleasers, plus more every day of the week at YogurStory. Dinner starts at 3 p.m., but if a slice of the prized prime rib is what you are after, you should come in around 5 p.m., as the meat needs five hours to cook and the countdown starts at about noon. Imagine that, this hunky piece of moist beef has been preparing itself for hungry diners for five whole, hot hours. So, don’t forget your appetite!
