Koa Pancake House has several locations on Oahu. This blog post covers the location at the Aiea Shopping Center (second floor) in Aiea, Hawaii.
While the namesake of this place is pancakes, Koa also serves omelets, breakfast plates, crepes, benedicts, French toast, and waffles.
I tried the Koa Omelet ($9.10). It's a 3-egg omelet filled with Portuguese sausage, spinach, and mushrooms. Omelets come with choice of pancakes, rice, toast, or potatoes. Being the panda rebel I am, I even upgraded to fried rice ($1.95 more) instead of getting a pancake.
Even when dining in, the food arrived on a paper plate. I guess if anything, it's easier with no dishes to wash.
Everything tasted great. Eggs cooked perfectly, and a good portion of diced sausage, spinach, and mushrooms inside. The fried rice also tasted like it had a good amount of pepper in it, which is right up my alley.
The portion size felt more like a snack to me. Perhaps it would have been much more filling with pancakes as the starch.
I looked around to see that some of the other patrons were ordering pancakes. They looked fluffy and appetizing, so I'd certainly give them a shot if I had such a craving.
