The Hawaiian locales it turns out are passionate about breakfast. They love breakfast. And before heading to this locale favorite brekkie place, I was warned that they had line ups at 6am, and don't bother going after 10am as you won't get served before lunchtime. Long lineups at 6AM?! Seriously?! Thankfully, thanks to everyone not having adjusted to time changes (everyone was waking up at 5am because thier bodies thought they had slept in till noon), we were able to scrape ourselves out of bed, and hike down to line up around a respectable 7am in the morning. Yes, there was ~30min line up to go up to the second floor where the brekkie tables are located. The main floor is devoted to selling pancake mixes and homemade syrups. A part of my brain grumpily thought they should really utilize the space better and use the main floor for resturant space instead of retail, and it would make it wheelchair accessible.
While breakfast is the most important meal of the day, its also important to stay hydrated in tropical weather. The plantation iced tea was a bit of a disappointment as it was essentially a extremely watered down ice tea with faint hints of pineapple juice. The fresh guava juice, however, was a totally different story. Refreshing, tangy and sweet but not cloyingly so, I still find myself trying to find high quality ripe guavas to replicate that glass of juice back at home.
