A wonderful place to have afternoon high tea in Waikiki. Located outside in a nice shady area and just a few feet from the beach, it's an unbelieveable setting for enjoying the sea breeze as well as people watching. A half dozen different teas are presented for you to select with descriptions from the server. In the past, there was just one tea service, but for this visit 3 different choices are now on the menu; the basic at $34, mid-level at $40, and top line at $43, with each one offering a couple more food items (I choose the mid-level). Among the treats are scones, cucumber/crab, salmon, curry chicken salad, chocolate pot de creme, kona coffee cheesecake, macarons, and a lemongrass sorbot to round it all out. Of course the hot water keeps flowing so you can drink tea as long as you wish.

--Parking is best by valet and is validated by the restaurant, otherwise you'll be searching for awhile.

One of the oldest hotels erected on Waikiki. These legendary Moana Surfrider houses their Beach Cafe near the Banyan tree and overlooks beautiful Waikiki beach. Here you can watch the people frolic in the ocean and sand. While awaiting the beautiful sunset. They offer generous size appetizers a.k.a "pupus" - my favorite the ahi poke 'nachos' with the works and plantation ice tea to wash it down while listening to the evening entertainment of local singers. Great place to gather with a date or group of precious friends. Customer service is exceptional and friendly . The experience is breath taking.

The Beachside Cafe is a great place to eat that provides it's guests with exceptional food and a great oceanfront view. Their entire diverse menu is tempting, but my favorite reason to head over here is the buffet. Depending on your budget, it can be a bit expensive, so unless you are sure you will make the most of it you might want chose a still-filling option from their menu instead. The service here is polite and friendly, although, as with all buffets, they don't really appreciate wastefulness in the form of having to throw out heaping plates that are barely picked at. A perfect place to bring the entire family, this popular restaurant is among my favorite places to pig-out in Waikiki.

Awesome breakfast buffet here. Their buffet is great and even their continental breakfast is a home run with mounds of fresh fruit, flaky and buttery breakfast pastries, and a little yogurt to round out the plate. Some juice and coffee to drink, and you're all set.

Oh, and if you get one of the seats closer to the water, you're all set. The view at this hotel is pretty incredible.

Located inside the beautiful Moana Surfrider Hotel, the Veranda is a very relaxing and beautiful place to enjoy leisurely tea time. The choice of teas infused with Hawaiian flavors are amazing as is the views of the ocean and the famous banyan tree. Service here is top notched and the dainty tea sandwiches get a thumbs up, two thumbs up! One of my happy places when visiting the island.

Excellent buffet dishes and gorgeous view from the patio at the gorgeous Sheraton Moana Surfrider. The dinner buffet is about $35, so make sure you leave completely stuffed. There are fresh crab legs, shrimp cocktail, roast duck and prime rib. They also have other island specialties like roast pork and mahi mahi, plus a wide array of desserts. Wish I could eat everything there all at once, but I had to keep up my bikini bod.
