We come to Honolulu twice year and don’t like to miss out on this café. Local feel, great ingredients and always yummy. It’s so popular you have to wait for a little bit to get a table but it’s worth the wait.

The reviews are great, but they don’t capture how delicious the food really is. It may be a small place but the food and service is big!

I'm not sure if they use canola oil, but you call the cafe` and ask if they do. I always have to ask if there is any type of shrimp used to prepare the food (I am allergic to shrimp used any way).
