Kick off the morning with breakfast at In-Yo Café, situated within Trump International Hotel Waikiki.
“We have more of a brunch menu versus your standard hotel breakfast menu,” says executive chef Joseph Rose. “You will find familiar items, but also items that are a little more fun.”
In-Yo Café’s Buttermilk Pancakes ($19), which are cooked until the edges are a bit crispy, feature tasty yuzu custard and fresh berries.
Its custard is prepared using eggs, sugar and yuzu juice.
The Avocado Toast ($20) is the restaurant’s bestselling item. It includes pickled vegetables, Fresno chiles, clover sprouts, poached eggs and romesco sauce with avocado spread atop crispy country bread.
The eatery’s Egg White Frittata ($20) consists of fresh spinach, asparagus and cherry tomatoes baked with egg whites, plus fresh dill, chiles and feta cheese.
“The Frittata is one of my favorites on the menu,” Rose shares. “It’s on the healthier and lighter side, has a little heat from the pickled chiles, and is still very fresh from the dill.”
In-Yo Café, which utilizes local ingredients, originally opened its doors more than a decade ago.
Breakfast is available from 6:30 to 10:30 a.m. daily. Onsite parking is available with complimentary four-hour valet parking for non-hotel guests.
