This fairly large cafe was recommended by the staff at Iolani Palace and right across the street from there, also a discount with the palace admit ticket. It's located in what looks like a fairly grand old building, with a beautiful lobby and courtyard, so you can eat out or in...feels very tropical and upscale, but the prices are quite reasonable, the service is quick and friendly, the food is nearly gourmet quality and very fresh...my asian chicken salad had many fresh ingredients with a tasty dressing. Loved the atmosphere, and it seems to be associated with the local Y. A hidden and wonderful find for lunch before the palace tour.

Highly recommend this beautiful new cafe in downtown Honolulu. Hidden in the historic YWCA (it used to be Cafe Laniakea), it's easy to forget you are in downtown Honolulu. The menu is diverse, interesting, and fresh. Went for Sunday breakfast and weekday lunch and enjoyed both. Everyone in your party will find something they'll like - garlic chicken mac salad sandwich to Vietnamese inspired pork chops - YUM! Sunday is so relaxing! They also have a "take-away" menu for a quick lunch option. They validate one hour parking in Alii Park Place around the corner or there is metered street parking. They also cater and do private functions.
