Our Story

A long time ago, Oahu-born husband and wife, Jason & Juli, moved back home from living several years on the mainland. When they returned to Hawaii, everything was great but there was just one thing they missed dearly... fried chicken & waffles. And when it couldn't be found on this beautiful island, they knew what had to be done. They needed to open a restaurant to share this unique sweet & savory dish.

So with a breakfast concept in mind, Jason's passion for cooking and his super secret crispy fried chicken recipe, Pancakes & Waffles opened in Kalihi in 2010. People came from all over the island to experience this unusual fried chicken & waffle combo. And those who had also been searching for it, were finally satisfied. Some even say it is the best chicken & waffles they have ever had.

​But the menu didn't end there. With a name like Pancakes & Waffles, they made sure to add a wide selection of customizable pancakes and waffles. Jason & Juli didn't forget about all the local favorites like spam and loco mocos either. And of course all the other classic breakfast items made the list and some with a twist.
