The portions of food served at Eggs & things are truly Hawaiian sized, and even I have split an item before because it really is a lot of food. They have a great breakfast menu, but the first thing you should do is look up at either wall and see what is on the special of the day menu. The French toast with fresh pineapple (or it may be mango or guava), whip cream and mac nuts is out of this world! The haupia (coconut cream) crepes are also very good. If you are really hungry, order the banana cream pancakes or waffle – and you get a stack of pancakes with about 6 inches of whipped cream on top of it. I have yet to have eaten there without seeing several different people taking pictures of the food when it is set out in front of them!
If you order eggs or potatoes, I would recommend that you give their table salsa a try. It is not super hot – but blended real well. You have your choice of guava, coconut, or regular syrup as well.
Open daily from 2300-1400, Eggs & Things is also a great very late night stop for an early big breakfast after clubbing in Waikiki.

Eggs 'n Things is a busy breakfast restaurant with a very sizable Japanese clientele. There's also a menu printed in Japanese. When there's a wait out the door, which was frequent, give your name at the counter and you're given a pager, which will alert you when your table is ready.
The coffee was so awful my partner asked that it be taken away, and it was removed from the bill. I had ordered a omelet off of the white board without the green onions and asked for mozzarella cheese. The order had no onions but had a different cheese than what I had ordered. It took a long time for the order to come the first time, so I didn't send it it back to have it corrected. You certainly couldn't complain about not having enough to eat, but the food portions are way out of line. The food portions are too large, especially the potatoes (seemed like 2 cups worth) that could feed four people. Smaller food portions (1/2 cup potatoes) along with lower prices is what's needed here.
I left here quite full, but it was a less than satisfying experience. I wouldn't bother coming back here again.
