Best coffee in Honolulu. Delicious scuffins (mix between muffin and scone), perfect cookies, and a small selection of breakfast/brunch items that really hit the spot. Everything is simple and high quality.

Best Hawaiian food. Check the website for hours as they aren't typical. No reservations taken. Parking is really tough, so I recommend taking an Uber or Lyft. Ask wait staff for recommendations. Definitely try the salmon dish and mix it with poi.

Best pastries in Waikiki. Everything is good. They also have sandwiches and quiche for those who just aren't in the mood for sweets. Great coffee as well. Located at entrance of International Market Place on Kuhio Road side.

Authentic and delicious Cantonese/Chinese food. Can't go wrong with any of the dishes served here. Closes early, usually 2pm, so make this a lunch destination. Save time to explore Chinatown before or after lunch.

Very popular Vietnamese/French fusion restaurant...somewhat upscale. Famous dessert bar. Reservations recommended. They also frequently appear at different farmers' markets around town. Always worth a try.

Hawaiian made chocolates that are expensive, but with plenty of free samples available, a visit is totally worth while. They have 3 kinds of chocolate based drinks as well - the coconut chocolate drink is a real winner and very refreshing.

Best sandwiches on the island. The vegetarian options are especially scrumptious, while the meaty ones are super tasty as well. They typically close before 4pm, so get there early and be prepared for a bit of a wait. The neighborhood is very foodie oriented, so there are lots of great spots to shop and dine.

Invigorating hike takes you right to the top of iconic Diamond Head. The view is tremendous - coral reefs and Waikiki beaches on one side, and towering mountains on the other. Go early in the morning (opens at 6am) for cooler temperatures and the best light for views and photography.

Fun viewing of the blowhole shooting out water when the waves crash in just right. On a clear day look across the channel to Molokai and Lanai islands. In the winter months, whales are a common site as well - watch for their spouts and acrobatics as they jump out of the water. Right next to the blow hole is a "secret" beach with crystal clear water and fun waves. Must make short hike down to it.

Entertainment & Activities

Gorgeous beach with never ending waves, perfect sand, and generally excellent weather. Only go in the water if you are a really good swimmer - waves are dangerous and many injuries happen here. Not good for children. The best place on Oahu for body surfing.
