Fodor's Review

Coffee shops are a dying breed in Honolulu, but the 24-hour Wailana Coffee House, opened in 1969, is still going strong. Budget-conscious snowbirds, night owls with a yen for karaoke, all-day drinkers of both coffee and the stronger stuff, hearty eaters, and postclubbing club kids all crowd this venerable, family-run diner and cocktail lounge—which recently underwent a renovation of the dining room and kitchen—at the edge of Waikiki. Banana pancakes and corned beef hash at breakfast; French dips, burgers, and Salisbury steak (!) at lunch; and trademark "broasted" chicken at dinner—this place is a trip down food memory lane. Most checks are under $11, and there's a $2.50 children's menu. It's open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (except Tuesday, when the restaurant closes from 10 pm to 6 am), but the place fills up, and a line forms around the corner at breakfast time, so arrive early or late.
