In all honesty, I need to give this Cinnamon’s Restaurant is known for their pancakes and from what I experienced, they definitely earned that title. It was suggested to me … a 2nd visit before I can give an accurate review. I am not the type of reviewer that likes to tear businesses down. However, even with all of the issues on the day of my visit I still give it a 5 on a scale of 1-10 which is way better than iHop in which I give a -8. On the date of my visit, Sunday, August 2nd they seemed to be short staffed which caused a ripple in the service. I do understand that things happen, people call out, get fired, or possibly the traffic was more than forecasted. For that reason I think they are worth giving another try.
So let’s discuss the positives. The bartender was very friendly, and kept us updated as we continued to wait on our food. While we sat at the bar she kept us entertained by creating custom drinks for us. Below you will find the three cocktails that I experienced. With the exception of the Bloody Mary I can’t call out the names of the other two, loll. What I can say is that I felt a buzz almost immediately. What I mean by “almost immediately” is it was about an hour before the liquor greeted me at the door, HA!
Cinnamon’s Restaurant is known for their pancakes and from what I experienced, they definitely earned that title. It was suggested to me to try the chiffon pancakes. I had no clue what was in store for me but baby when I tell you that every bite was magical… I mean just that. My friends and I also ordered the crab cakes, and the Moco Loco plate. I liked everything except the crab cakes; they were too bready and it wasn’t the right type of bread for crab cakes. Outside of that everything was wonderful.
We enjoyed the outdoor seating on the perfect day in Hawaii. The crowd was steady and the positive energy flowed in. Again, I would definitely give this place another try. The good outweighed the bad.
