Our hotel raved about this nearby eatery and claimed the president loves it too. We had to try it and are glad we did. Specializing is musubi they offer a wide variety but also serve some other great dishes. My Poke bowl was the best Poke of the 5 times I ordered the dish in Honolulu and Kauai. The ikura... More

We were blessed with being right across the street from this place and probably stopped in too many times within our week visit. This place was so good. We ate a variety of musubis and various other snacks. Everything was legit delicious. Check it out. Grab a few musubis for the road!

Tip: Get the "2 Musibi & Miso Soup" (under $6.00) in the "Combination Menu" for value for money. Avocado Spam Bacon & Egg Musubi 7.5/10 - Taste explosion. Nice when warm! Try this! Spicy Cod Roe Musubi 6.5/10 - It was OK; a little too salty Miso Soup 7/10 - Tasty and served hot, just the way it should be... More

My daughter, son, and I thought the food was tasty and wonderful. Reasonable price for the amount given. We ordered the curry bowl, beef bowl, and musubi. Will definitely go again.

I wind up stopping in to Musubi Cafe whenever I'm in Waikiki, whether eating there for breakfast or picking up some musubi for snacks while I sightsee or drop in on family. Spam musubi is definitely a Hawaiian invention crossing sushi rice and spam. It's a little counter with friendly order takers/cashiers and a couple of tables. Don't expect a... More

Had a bacon & egg musubi most mornings for breakfast. Only a couple of dollars. Also has a good selection of bento boxes.

The family rolled in about 7:20 and were reminded they close at 8:00. Decent bowls and musubi. Very little seating. We asked about allergy precautions and they could not guarantee success so we had to feed one member separately. Prices are good as is the food. It's worth a stop just off waikiki.

Maybe it's a niche thing but I hated the food here. Too much rice with whatever spam roll you order. Drove all the way from the north Shore. Wasn't worth it. If I could fine one positive it would have to be that it was cheap but honestly I'd have rather grabbed a fresh sandwich from the ABC stores than... More

We saw this place when we were walking on the street looking for a restaurant. There are couple Musubi cafes around Honolulu. We have been to two the them. One takes credit card and cash and one only takes cash. So it's always better to carry some cash with you when you are in Hawaii. In the mainland, there are... More
