New Grinds at North Shore's Kono's

Bigger is Better is a phrase that applies to both waves and food. That’s the motto of Kono’s in Haleiwa, the North Shore’s newest place to eat. Opening just in time for the surf season, owner, Mike Motyka, strives to serve up great, big food at affordable prices.

In the morning, Kono’s servers up big Hawaiian Style Breakfast Burritos. The “Waimea” is stuffed with potatoes, bacon, eggs, and cheese. Others include Portuguese Sausage and even the Hawaiian favorite, Spam. Fresh Kona Coffee is also served. Breakfast is served until at least 11 AM Monday through Friday and until noon on weekends, leaving enough time for a morning surf session.

The restaurant is centered around the combination of famous Hawaiian Hot Dogs and “Lava Lava” tropical smoothies. The Hot Dogs are big with toppings like mango and onion, pineapple and BBQ sauce, or the ever popular Chili-Cheese. Hot Sandwiches are also in the works with Cheese-Steaks, Chicken Ranch Melts, and a few other killer combinations.

Also offered are big salads, baskets of taquitos and egg-rolls, and a variety of surf grinds. Kono’s Big Blended Cappuccino, and Ice Cream is also available.

The back of the Kono’s store features Internet Access. The “Coconut Connection,” is the North Shore’s prime High-Speed Internet Access. With a blazing fast connection, convenient location, and Printer all in one place, Kono’s is the North Shore’s place to get online.

Kono’s is centrally located in Haleiwa, next to Quiksilver Boardriders, at the front of North Shore Marketplace. Right now you can get a 2 for 1 coupon Lunch at Kono’s website at
