Just had Breakfast at this little Gold mine! Line out the door for good reason. Once we got to Order served in less then 5 min. All I can say is this place is number 1 for a reason!

stayed 100 yards away and was so happy to seat my day with these guys. Great coffee and the portions are massive. When you order the Big Breakfast you can easily share it and still be full.

I couldn't wait to get out of my hotel room and walk down to Kono's for my morning coffee. Sat and watched the surfers. They make the best coffee I've ever had and are super friendly.

Stayed in mission beach for New Years and stopped every morning on our walk on the boardwalk for coffee at Kono’s. There is always a line, but it’s very fast and they make good java!

Perfect eggs. Long line, but once getting through order line, wait for food was relatively short. Would definitely return!!

Great breakfast food! There's usually a long line, but it is worth the wait! It is right on the Strand and you can eat outside with the ocean views!

Long lines but they move quick and definitely worth the wait. Food was delicious and inexpensive for the area.

Here is popular place for breakfast, I went weekday early morning, but already lined up. food was very good but I didn't seat inside. ここはパシフィックビーチで朝食で有名なレストランです。 いつも多くの人が来ていて並んでいますがとても美味しくボリュームもあります。 席はあまりないので持ち帰り(to go)がおすすめです。

This is where I take people who want a view and cheap eats that are good. I like to sit outside and people watch.
