well that settles it I'm going to have to try to get there twice or order the pancakes and go to captain cook's for the tonga toast. Does anyone know how long it's served for in the day?

I am already debating this myself...and the trip is 9 months away!

My solution is to make DH order one and i'll order the other. He already said he would, but if he looks at the menu and decides he really wants something else, I'll just get both! It wouldn't be the first time I ordered two breakfasts

I have been having the same struggle!!! I really don't want to split, either...I'm a food hoarder! What if I really like one that much better than the other? I guess I'll have to order both. (Yes, my trip is 6 mos away and I'm already deciding what to order!)

I like the Tonga Toast so much, it's the first and only thing I've ordered off the menu. It's a cinnamon-sugar doughnut-ty thing with banana inside. We've been there several times, I've heard the Big Kahuna is good. Good luck with your choice. I like the idea of ordering 2 breakfasts. Vacation!!

I am going to Kona for the first time on the last day of my upcoming vacation and I can't wait to have the Tonga Toast but those pancakes sound so good too. I have already told DH that he has to order them so that I can try them too. I'm not letting him look at the menu! I don't want him changing my plan!!

I've never been for breakfast but I've been twice for dinner and I've been really really wanting to go for both of these breakfasts but not sure what to order and trust me if I don't decide now I'll drive my friend and the server crazy

Opinions wanted/needed!! Thanks.

Oh, and the Big Kahuna is awesome. You could just order the kahuna or pancakes and go downstairs to Capt Cooks and buy the Tonga Toast for $5. Heck, just order both. IIRC all the breakfast plates are around $10-12.

I like the Tonga Toast, but LOVED the pineapple pancakes! YUMMY! But, the best meal is when I get the pancakes and my husband gets the Samoan and we share! That is the perfect combo of sweet and savory!

The Tonga Toast is great and I am glad I tried it, but it is just very heavy. The pancakes are light and the nut and pineapple combo is just perfect. The Samoan gives you some protein and some saltiness and the smoked pork is just delicious!

OT, but is the pineapple on the macadamia nut pancakes just crushed pineapple? I've never tried them. You all are making me want to make them this weekend. None of the recipes I've found mention the pineapple.

I often choose two things & have DH order one of them. He gets the one I like the least. It's a good thing he'll eat almost anything.

OP, try to have your friend order the one you don't. If he/she prefers proteins for breakfast, you could give them the meat from both dishes & order a side order of eggs.
