When in Haleiwa, Rachael favors the Coffee Gallery for a caffeine fix. Here you can savor a fresh cup of java (or refreshing concoctions like the Mudslide) while watching local beans get the treatment in an 8-foot-tall roaster. Save room for the carrot cake that Rachael calls “pure yumminess.”
Rachael swung by 5 Spot for a “hearty all-American breakfast.” The menu here is switched up regularly to showcase the best blue-collar recipes from around the USA. Some popular eats do stick around all year, such as the Hair of the Dog-wich that offers fried egg and bacon as a tasty hangover cure.
Located a quick 10-minute drive from the strip on Sahara Avenue, The Egg and I boasts reasonable prices and friendly service. Wake up hungry? Try their Eggs Benedict with Blackened Prime Rib, the Pesto Scramble with Sliced Chicken, Tomatoes and Feta or a savory Breakfast Crepe.

Leave the buffet behind in favor of hearty comfort food from Hash Hash A Go Go, where Rachael says "you won't find disco balls...but you will find gigantic portions." Indulge in the Fried Chicken Benedict, or try the Pork Tenderloin Sandwich with a Kiwi Watermelon Lemonade.
Each of the three open-air decks at Friday’s Crabhouse satisfies one aspect of dinner. As Rachael learned, one deck is for seafood like steamer clams and Dungeness crab; one is for hamburgers and hot dogs; and the last is for drinks (the spectacular view of San Juan Island is on the house).
Curtis Stone's Maui-style fish tacos at Paia Fish Market in Hawaii were not only satisfying, but they also became his favorite lunchtime snack. Everything on the tortilla was super fresh, from the salsa to the just-caught fish. For an even fresher dish, Paia also features blackened sashimi.
As one of the founding members of the Hawaiian regional cuisine movement, Mala Ocean Tavern delivers on both style and substance. Rachael loved their twist on a classic bruschetta made with seared ahi and edamame puree. Looking for a bigger bite? The Sauteed Fresh Market Fish is great for sharing.
