Breakfast at Eggs ‘n Things

Have you ever heard of the Fodor’s travel guidebooks? They are one of the largest collection of travel guides, covering more than 300 destinations worldwide. For our state, they have a book for Oahu, Maui, Kauai, the Big Island, and Hawaii as a whole.

This is my second year updating the restaurant section. Part of it entails actually eating at the restaurants listed, but since I’ve already been eating at most of them anyway, it’s not like I’m totally starting from scratch. And although Fodors allows us to ask for comps, I never do since I’m also wearing my Nonstop face and I don’t want restaurants to get confused.

One place that I had not tried yet was Eggs ‘n Things in their new location on Saratoga Road. I had eaten at their old location, and remembered it as a place you’d go after clubbing for a satisfying and relatively inexpensive breakfast. Tourists still wax on about how much they love it, so there’s no denying that it’s something to include in the guidebook. But I had been hearing some grumbling about it from locals, so when Oahu Concierge publisher Pam Davis said she needed to check it out for her publication, there was no question that we had to go. NOW.

Pam Davis is yet another friend that I met through Ad2 Honolulu. The Oahu Concierge is one of her main publications, so she knows her Waikiki.
