Gardena Bowl Coffee Shop

Perfect For:Breakfast

If you know the laws of eating food inside of bowling alleys, you know to generally steer clear altogether. Break that law at Gardena Bowl Coffee Shop. This tiny diner inside a neighborhood bowling alley has a very good menu of every American breakfast staple in the book, but you’re here for their Hawaiian/Asian fusion dishes. The kimchi bacon fried rice is excellent and we wish we were eating the Hawaiian Royal - a massive plate of eggs, rice, chashu, and Portuguese sausage - right now.
