Located at the Hawaiian Monarch Hotel, this bright and homey eatery gets as much attention for its hobbit-like, French-countryside setting as its Japanese-influenced breakfast and brunch menu. Alongside quaint knickknacks, doily coasters, and wrought-iron bistro chairs, you can indulge in plates of soufflé pancakes, a Burgundy beef stew omelet, and maguro eggs Benedict served with ahi carpaccio. You'll want to snag a seat in the outdoor garden if you can, where you'll really feel like Frodo among all the greenery, watching kayakers glide along the Ala Wai Canal.
