Sunny Days

Sunny Days is located near Diamond Head. They are in the same complex as Bogart's Cafe and Diamond Head Cove Health Bar. I recommend trying their pancakes, sandwiches, and the eggslut. The eggslut is good for sharing between 2 people and it includes a side of mashed potatoes topped with a soft boiled egg. They have a lot of greens and fruits in all their dishes which makes it healthier than most brunch spots around town. Their prices are high so save this for a day where you can splurge.

The interior of the restaurant is bright, spacious, and they have an open kitchen. The staff are friendly and will check on you often to make sure you're alright. There was more Japanese tourist than locals eating in here. Their parking lot is small and it's shared between the other businesses so it might be best to park on the street in the residential area and walk over.

8 Half Desserts

8 Half Desserts is an ice cream shop in the Kaimuki area. They are located on Waialae Ave between 8th and 9th Ave. If you can spot Hung Won Restaurant while you walk or drive down Waialae Ave, you'll be able to find this place because they share the same parking lot. The inside of the shop is small but the owner is friendly and he lets you sample all the flavors available. What makes this ice cream shop different is the unique flavor combinations and ice cream pies. A lot of the ice creams are made with local fruits. My favorites were the mango shoyu and mountain apple. Their watermelon ice cream pie slices used to be sold at Kaimuki Grill but now you can get it here by the slice ($6) or whole ($45). The pre-packed flavors are $3 each, the cone is $4 and the bowl is $5.50. I recommend trying this place now before the word gets out. They accept cash and credit.
