We went on Easter Sunday to hear a friend play jazz and have a light lunch. A small but friendly venue. Avo toast was a hit.

Cute little cafe in a quiet spot, we walked there from the heart of Waikiki (took us about 25 minutes). Not a huge menu, but the food was tasty. The avocado on toast was delicious. GREAT coffee and good service.

If you are an Australian or Kiwi searching for a 'proper' coffee - this is your place. Small and interesting, absolutely perfect coffee. Not far from the main Waikiki strip, heading towards Diamond Head.

We had been past a few times on a Waikiki Trolley (bus) at different times during the past couple of days and saw that the small cafe always seemed busy. Took the gamble and hopped off the trolley 100ms further up the hill and we...More
