The new­est of this brunch bunch, Koko Head Café ex­ists for the food­ies at heart. Founded by chef Lee Anne Wong of Top Chef fame, who can oc­ca­sion­ally be spot­ted cook­ing as well as wait­ing ta­bles, this spot is lo­cated on a hum­ble cor­ner in Kaimuki, an eclec­tic neigh­bor­hood known for its top-notch din­ing. Dig into sa­vory dishes served in hefty cast-iron skil­lets or the sweet­est brunch dish you may ever in­tro­duce your taste­buds to: a corn­flake-crusted French toast with brown-sugar ba­con, black­pep­per maple syrup, and a dol­lop of Frosted Flakes gelato made by Via Gelato, just across the street. Get more than just sugar buzzed by way of the drink menu, which in­cludes the Queen’s Mi­mosa, made with sparkling cava, el­der­flower, and a splash of guava, or the Morn­ing Milk­shake, a frothy blend of Maker’s Mark bourbon, vanilla gelato, honey maple, gra­nola, and ba­con.
