Family Friendly Restaurants Near Disney’s Aulani

Disney’s Aulani is a favorite vacation destination for our family.  We’ve gone the last two years in a row and each time we find new things to experience.  There are many food choices on the resort but today, I’m discussing the best family friendly restaurants near Disney’s Aulani.

Here are some Family Friendly Restaurants Near Disney’s Aulani

1.  Monkey Pod Kitchen

Monkey Pod Kitchen is a restaurant directly across the street from Aulani.  I recommend going for happy hours for really good drinks and small plates.  We ordered the fish tacos and the burger amounts a few other things.  Our food was fresh, tasty and the happy hour prices made the meal reasonable. 

We got there when it was still early but by the time we left, there was a long wait for a table. On certain days there are drink specials and live music!  It’s a great place when you need a break from the resort food.

2.  Island Vintage Coffee

Island Vintage Coffee is directly across the street from Aulani and it serves coffee and rustic breakfasts.  Aulani’s coffee is pretty good, but I usually need a latte in the morning and I unapologetically walk across the street to get one every time I visit the resort.  It can take a while to get your order some come with patience! 

I highly recommend the scrambled egg plate with rustic wheat bread and Portuguese sausage.

3.  Koa Pancake House

Located about 15 minutes from the resort the Koa Pancake House is a cheap and delicious option for breakfast.  It may not look like much from the front, but we always have tasty food and excellent service here.  I know a lot of people order the omelets or mixed plates but we always order the macadamia and buttermilk pancake breakfast plates!  Their pancakes are huge, fluffy and tasty. 

This place is popular with locals so be prepared to wait during their morning rush hour crowd!

4. Eggs N Things

If you’re looking for a place that serves breakfast and burgers this is your spot! The staff is friendly and attentive, the service was relatively quick, and most importantly, the food was hot and delicious.

Eggs ‘n Things is across the street from Disney Aulani.

5. Kalapawai Cafe & Deli

Kalapawai Cafe & Deli is about 10 minutes from the Four Season and Aulani resorts and a nice change-up as there are not many restaurants near the hotel.  Kalapawai Cafe is a great family-style deli near Koa Pancake House!

This Cafe offers coffee, deli sandwiches, lunch plates, salads and pizzas!
