New Eggs 'n' Things at Ala Moana

The Whip Pancake Sampler. At the media event, we finished all the fruit and whipped cream, but left half the pancakes.

This one's for the locals…at least that's what the managers of the third Eggs 'n' Things say. Still, in the first week of opening, the new Ala Moana Eggs 'n' Things, the first location outside of Waikiki, is already packed with Japanese tourists.

Not much is different here—the usual pancakes, omelets and crepes. Which is to say, during brunch hours, you'd be better off at Cafe Kaila for pancakes, where they're more tender and fluffy, Sweet E's for omelets that are more stuffed, at Bogart's where the waffles are Belgian-style and crisp.

But Eggs 'n' Things is famous for its late night hours (and the lines at its Waikiki locations), so when you're craving breakfast for dinner, Eggs 'n' Things will do.

*Opening special: 99 cent breakfast tomorrow! On October 25 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., a three pancake and two egg plate is 99 cents. Eggs 'n' Things will also have $2.35 to $3.50 brunch items from noon to 5 p.m., such as a $2.35 Bacon & Eggs or $3.50 Strawberry Sundae Pancakes. It's a 1974 pricing day (when the first Eggs 'n' Things opened).

Open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, until midnight on Friday and Saturday, though even later hours are expected in the future.
