Did some Yelp search before I arrived to Honolulu and this is one place I was hoping to visit. I was in luck because my hotel was Vive Hotel and it is literally just yards away from it. This cafe worked out better eventually for me and my family & friends. 1) My hotel does offer coffee, juice, & pastries... More

Never thought I would eat Spam but...actually, with the rice and egg, darn good and just enough for beach lunch. Tried the to go chicken katsu also and it was delish. Good prices and selections of fresh food.

I was so happy to see that they moved from that small place in an alley that was hard to find to this new bigger location. The staff are always cheerful and kind. The food is awesome, reasonably priced, and the kids love the bite sized snack that easily turns into a meal. We go here every time we are... More

They are open till the run out so by 5pm there may not be much choice left but we were lucky and had a few pieces of delicious spam and egg, egg, bacon, and Alvarado musubis.

People are always queuing but it won't take so longer time than other crowded restaurant. Prices of foods are fair and everything tastes good. If you got tired of big dishes, this is a good option.

It was packed in here and I had to stand in line for about 15 mins but all was forgiven when we got our food. This place has a great, casual feel for somewhere just off the strip at Waikiki, it offers a variety of Japanese/Hawaiian meals including bento boxes and of course musubi. We had bacon and egg, and... More

We were the last people to be served as they shut the doors 20-30 minutes before actual closing time. The line was very long so may have been just that night. Food was great. Great size.

Taste good. Especially, good to take out. If you wanna eat something in the car, on the beach or any outside of restaurant, this is the best choice.

I planned visit this restaurant, but I failed. In the building forest, it was very hard to find it.

It was raining and we needed a snack. About 15 to 20 different choices and soup. Lots of gift swag for sale as well. The price is right!
