is a cozy yet bustling café located in Manoa Valley. Co-Owner Mahina Akimoto '06
a menu that focuses on simple preparations of great ingredients, made from scratch whenever possible, with an emphasis on seasonal, local and sustainable products. We support local farmers and producers where-ever we can – fresh pork from 2 Lady Pig Farmers (Waianae), fresh beef from Kulana Beef on the Big Island, local tomatoes from the Big Island, greens of all kinds as well as bananas and lilikoi from the North Shore, mangos, papayas, Lehua honey from Oahu, even local milk from Hawaii Fresh on the Big Island. Locally grown ingredients taste better, are fresher, and are generally healthier than foods flown or shipped to the islands. Where great local choices are not available, we seek out the best in ingredients wherever we find them.
Koa Pancake House
was started in 1988 by husband and wife, Il Man and Sam Soon Chung, who opened up their very first dine-in breakfast and lunch restaurant on the island of O’ahu. Designed from Hawaiian Koa, one of the finest textured woods in the world, the first Koa Pancake House was born. To expand the brand, the Chungs’ decided to open up a second location in 2001, to provide a fast-casual dining experience. Since then, six Koa Pancake Houses have been opened across the island, proudly serving traditional breakfast and lunch plates with a Hawaiian flair.
In 2014, the business was kept in the family when Juno Chung '03, son of Il Man and Sam Soon, took over. He plans to expand the brand throughout the islands of Hawai’i, to make Koa Pancake House the best breakfast and lunch option in not only Hawai’i, but all of the continental US.
Keiki and the Pineapple
was created by Tiffany Leng '05 Morrissey
as Hawaii's new and unique kid's concept play café where families can come and relax while toddlers/kids can play in a safe environment. Located on the corner of Ward Avenue and Kapiolani Boulevard in a 1,500-square-foot space that was formerly occupied by Greens and Vines. Outside, there’s a 500-square-foot patio with additional seating and toys. Each week, Keiki & the Pineapple will also host various activities for kids, including storytime, art classes, yoga and more.
K&P will be hosting an activities tent providing a fun play area with a soft mat and toys for our Spartan Keikis!
is all about exploring traditional flavors through play and experimentation with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. Owner Alejandra Alexander started making tamales to reconnect with her heritage, but the flavors she concocts mix traditional with modern. There’s the choriqueso aka “el cheese pool” (how could you resist a name like that?), with chorizo, cheese sauce, mushrooms and black beans, and vegan tamales with roasted bell peppers, mac nuts, and pomegranate molasses. Don’t miss the creamy salted caramel flan.
El Chino Taco
offers updated classic Asian flavors, fused into traditional Southern-style barbecue meats of the highest quality. They pride themselves in buying and using the highest quality products available, meaning responsibly raised 100% all-natural pork, USDA Prime Grade beef and as many local products and produce as possible! They make everything by hand, including all of their signature sauces, marinades, and even the mayo! They are looking forward to serving the following signature dishes: Cognac Togarashi Char Siu Ribs, Yuzu Kosho Pulled Pork Tacos, & Bourbon Misoyaki Brisket
Momona Bowls HI
is a local, family-owned catering company that brings the "backyard pa‘ina" to any event. They look forward to offering their signature Pastele Stew, Beef Luau Stew, and Shoyu Chicken to this month's Evening On The Lawn!
