Ken's House of Pancakes, Hilo, HI

Ken's House of Pancakes is a Hilo tradition or something. It is always voted best breakfast because most of the time it's the only breakfast for miles. There are a few other options, but Ken's serves a pretty mean breakfast. There are all sorts of omelet options, egg plates, all served with either toast or an order of pancakes. One of the special things about the pancakes at Ken's is that you can top them with some very nice tropical syrups in addition to the more traditional maple syrup. Breakfast is served 24 hours a day.

Ken's has a huge menu with everything from loco moco to steak. The burgers are pretty decent, and if you are of a mind to have "all you can eat" check out the daily specials like taco Tuesday. Whenever anyone orders the really large saimin soup the gong is struck and the entire staff yells SUMO! After ten years, a bit tiring to hear this, but alas, it's for the tourists, or anyone coming in late at night that might consider falling asleep in the booth.

For the most part, Ken's is diner food and you get large portions for a decent price. There is really only one thing on the menu I will never order again and that's the chili. It is just plain horrible. So, stay away from that and you'll be just fine with the food here.
