Although just a humble spot for breakfast, the Daybreak Restaurant can make a big difference in starting your day. Their full buffet spread treats you to all the best tropical flavors on the island, especially when you dig into all the sliced pineapple, mangos, papayas, and more. Plus, you get to choose between all the top hot and cold breakfast favorites, ranging from cereal and bagels to egg sandwiches and wraps.
You can even go over to their omelet station to whip up creation all your own. Their staff happily adds all the cheese and other ingredients you want to find between the two fluffy layers of eggs. Then, they serve it up on a plate or a to-go box, depending on where you want to enjoy your meal.
Before jetting off to your dining room table or even the beachside to enjoy your selections, you’ve absolutely got to try their invigorating coffee drinks. Their barista will create whatever drink you desire, adding all the cream, sugar, and syrup types as instructed. With its double dose of coffee, the Redeye Americano is always a fantastic choice when you need endless energy for all your Kauai adventures.
Start your day off right with:
If you’re the type who loves coffee in their coffee, the Redeye Americano is right up your alley. Instead of cutting the espresso with water as with the traditional Americano, they use coffee. That’s right, you get a double dose of your favorite beverage plus a chance to dress it up with all the cream, sugar, and syrups of your choice.
Coconut Mochi Pancakes
The Coconut Mochi Pancakes are light, fluffy, and oh-so-delicious, going well beyond what you might expect from a pancake. After whipping up three big pancakes on the griddle, they top them with decadent white chocolate syrup, macadamia nuts, and caramelized bananas. You get either bacon or sausage along the side, although you can have both for an extra charge.
When you want all the best breakfast flavors in every bite, you need to get a taste of the Kauai Wrap. This wrap starts with a big flour tortilla that’s warmed up, so it’s ready to hold all the delicious fillings. Along the center, they add scrambled eggs, potatoes, Portuguese sausage, cheese, and salsa, and then they wrap it all up.
Broken Egg Sandwich
For a sweet and savory kick, turn your attention to the Broken Egg Sandwich. This simple yet decadent breakfast dish starts with eggs cooked over-easy while the Hawaiian sweet bread toasts to perfection. Then, they put the eggs on the toast and add applewood smoked bacon, pepperjack cheese, and salsa.
The Papaya Parfait takes tropical fruit and housemade granola to the next level. When you order this breakfast treat, you get a bowl of Chobani yogurt covered in sliced sunrise papaya. Over that, they add their popular coconut macadamia nut granola made in-house by Chef Lucas.
While grubbing on your menu items, take the time to jot down your ideal itinerary for the day. While you’ll want to leave a little room for impromptu explorations, of course, it’s best to have a loose plan on just where to go. Otherwise, it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of activity on the island and miss out on key sights and experiences. If you’re not sure how to best spend your time on vacation, ask the staff for recommendations about the top spots for fun and adventure.
-Although the buffet is the star of the show, you’re welcome to order off the menu until 10 am. After that, you only have buffet options until the eatery closes at 11 am.
-While their coffee gets the most attention, they do have mimosas, too, if you prefer to kickstart your day with orangey, champagne-y goodness.
