This past Sunday we met up with @NaneaKalani and her family in Kailua's popular Cinnamon's Restaurant. I checked in with the hostess at about 825a and was asked if we'd prefer indoor or out. I wasn't familiar with the restaurant because this was my first time there so I asked what she recommended. She recommended I be on the list for either. This is probably to avoid the long waits that I have heard about, but I barely waited 5 minutes for a table outside in the courtyard area.
While we waited for our table, I was offered self-service coffee from a coffee station set up next to rows of seats that the people waiting for tables can sit on. I thought this was a nice touch although I am not sure if it's complimentary or added on to your bill if you start drinking while waiting. I didn't try the coffee from this station, but I did have coffee at the table which was described as 50% Kona Blended coffee. If the same coffee is used in the coffee station, I'm sure it's not free because it's $2 something a cup on the menu.
For breakfast I had the Portuguese Sweet Bread French Toast with Ham and 1 Over Easy Egg. The French Toast was light with a crisp outer layer. The ham was very tender I barely needed to use the knife to slice it. My over easy egg was a little more than over easy; probably more like plain over, but it was ok. I found I had to use a lot of syrup. I don't know what kind of syrup it was, but it seemed watery and lacking sweetness. And, I'm usually not one that prefers sweet things.
I also took some photos of everyone else's food, but I didn't try them all. The other dishes are Half Order Traditional Eggs Benedict, Blueberry Pancakes and a giant omelet!

Thanks for the breakfast treat Nanea!
