Great pastrami, but bread was a bit toasty on the sandwich. Iced coffee was very good. Cookie we had for dessert was great too. This was a nice stop for us vacationing tourists from Cali...This is my first post ever for a review, just saying!

We liked it so much that it was the only place we ate at twice, during our stay in Kailua. Great service and outdoor seating available.

This is my first time to visit Kalapawai Cafe & Deli that I had a business meeting there. Their location is just entrance of Kailua town from Ala Moana and the Cafe is a cute little house.

Can't believe I have never gone here before. Tried it out for dinner and it was great. I'll be back for sure. Food was really good and service was nice. They offer you wine while waiting for a table which was a very nice touch.

This place is easy on the pocket book, and delicious in your tummy. I don’t know why it took us so long to try it- but we ate there twice within one week- and loved everything we’ve tried. There’s no such thing as ordering the...More
