Kailua, breakfast mecca on Oahu?

I was in Hawaii Kai a few months ago, and was very surprised by the lack of places to eat breakfast.  The more I thought about the breakfast options in Kailua, the more I started to believe that Kailua may have the highest concentration on Oahu of places to eat breakfast. (excluding Waikiki!)

Check out our list, and please let us know if we missed any breakfast places in Kailua!!
