Phone:Phone 996108

This is the first Tropics restaurant opened by Peaches & Tony Guerrero. They also operated The Tropics Ala Moana.
Some History; Tony Guerrero was an "Island Boy"! In the 1930's he went to Hollywood made a several movies. While there he meet the beautiful Peaches Jackson, who was pursuing her career in the movies, the rest is well... Tony owned his first restaurant in Hollywood. When they sold it they moved to Hawaii. In 1940 they bought a waffle place and made it into the first Tropics restaurant (at Waikiki). Not sure when this location closed.
