The Breakfast Club

In need of a reason to roll out of bed on the weekend? Then, peruse our short list of our favorite breakfast spots at the moment.

For your next morning meal, head down under to bills Sydney.

1. bills Sydney
Aussie culinary personality Bill Granger’s first Honolulu outpost offers two spots for the most important meal of the day. The downstairs cafe is the perfect place to grab a quick coffee and delicious baked goods, while the upstairs dining room is made for lingering. Be sure to try the signature scrambled eggs and the ricotta pancakes. 280 Beach Walk, Waikīkī, O‘ahu, 922.1500 

2. Tucker & Bevvy
First came the hip to-go counter across from the Honolulu Zoo, where locals and visitors pick up pressed sandwiches and fresh wraps. Now, this Aussie-inspired eatery is getting attention for its new breakfast and brunch location in the Hee Hing Building in Kapahulu. Our current fave: the rosti potatoes with spinach and eggs. 449 Kapahulu Ave, Suite 203, Kapahulu, O‘ahu, 732.0050 

3. Ka‘ana Kitchen
The Andaz Maui at Wailea’s star eatery serves up an amazing morning spread, from island classics (kimchee fried rice, anyone?) to healthier fare (kale salad). Even if you’re tempted to try everything, one of the delicious fresh juices will leave you revived at the end of the meal. Andaz Maui at Wailea, 3550 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea, Maui, 879.1234

4. Goofy Cafe & Dine
Located on a stretch of Ala Moana Boulevard in Waikīkī that’s usually lacked better dining options, this thoughtfully conceived eatery is a breath of fresh air. For a real local twist to a classic, try the Eggs Benedict with Shinsato pork. 1831 Ala Moana Blvd. #201, Waikīkī, O‘ahu, 955.2715

5. Liliha Bakery
Honolulu foodies can now pick up the famous coco puffs at this legendary bakery’s new location in Iwilei—right in the former Sam Choy’s Breakfast, Lunch & Crab spot, to be exact. While the new location is sparkling new and expansive, expect the same cozy menu as the 64-year-old original. 580 N. Nimitz Highway, Iwilei, O‘ahu
