For some reason no one mentions the Food Pantry at 438 Hobron Lane. It's a block off of Ala Moana or Ala Wai in Eaton Square. Since it's on the edge of Waikiki near the Don Quijote the prices are quite reasonable. The store has a great selection of prepared foods, fresh foods and liquor. We shop both at this... More

Very convenient store in Waikiki. Price gouging very evident. Tourists pay the price, especially from Asia. Not enough cashiers, lines backing up into the aisles, my cashier was very efficient due to the high volume of customers. If you are willing to pay the high prices for groceries, go for it! Again a very convenient crowded price gouging store!!!

The Food Pantry has more than the ABC stores and prices are very reasonable. They have baked goods, salads, sandwiches, deli counter, and a decent selection of groceries, even cards, toiletries, wine, beer, souvenirs, a little bit of most anything you might need. They have fresh fruit-nice selection, frozen food, etc. Checking out is usually pretty quick. It has a... More

closest food store with a variety of products/brands. Very good pastries at bakery department. Prices quite high, but the closest Safeway was about 10 min bus ride.

The food was of great value, generous portions and they were open till 11PM at night. Hence this food joint, that was walking distance from our hotel was a blessing. The rice and steak meal was very delicious.... and we could also pick up fresh groceries for the few meals we cooked in our hotel.
