Hawaiian Brunch Dishes Reinvented At Koko Head Cafe
At first glance, you might miss this unassuming brunch corner. Carved out of a white block building, its striped yellow awning and blue paneling is a gentle invitation. Step into Koko Head Cafe, an island style brunch cafe happily reinterpreting the standard brunch menu while paying homage to its locale.A familiar face in the culinary world, Lee Anne Wong created Koko Head as a new way to approach brunch. A dish like the breakfast congee is updated with Portuguese sausage, soft poached egg, and cinnamon-bacon croutons. Cornflake French Toast and the Koko Moco (their Loco Moco) are other standout items that reflect the kitchen’s creativity and good nature.Koko Head Cafe sees many familiar faces, something that Wong takes pride in. It’s become a reliable place for locals seeking comfort food and tourists to sample new Hawaiian cuisine. As a NYC transplant, Wong has now found a piece of the island to call home. And Koko Head Cafe is just that: home.
