Our breakfast at Makahiki included a three-course meal. It began with a welcome basket of mixed bakery items such as croissants, pastries, and blueberry muffins—all were hits with my family.

The fruit plates were next, beautifully arranged and absolutely delicious.

For our main courses, my husband and I enjoyed the Traditional Omelet with herb-roasted potatoes. My teens loved their Buttermilk Pancakes and Punaluu Sweet Bread French Toast.
