Café Kaila

Overall Review: CorkCorkCorkCorkCork

Service: The service was good at Cafe Kaila in the Market City Shopping Center. The place was totally packed for lunch and we had to wait for a table / counter space to free up but the staff was very nice and extremely accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure the got my wife’s custom order right which was really great. They also brought out waffle samples to the hungry and waiting customers out side the store which where delicious and crispy.

Food: The food was really good at Cafe Kaila! They serve breakfast all day which is always a winner and lunch starting at 11am. Items you can expect to find on the menu include fluffy omelets, egg scrambles, waffles, pancakes, salads, sandwiches, soups, pastas and some other lovely entree’s. The food was very fresh and tasted great. 

Favorite Dishes: Egg white omelet with smoked salmon, onion, capers and cream cheese (ask for the Lox Scramble as an egg white omelet and add the cheese), Lox Scramble also good, and the chicken avocado salad was great.

Atmosphere: Cafe Kaila is lovely inside. It’s a very quant restaurant with a light wood and a pleasant ambiance. The artwork is of french & italian paintings of scenic sites and nature. Overall the atmosphere is very nice and since the establishment isn’t to large its not very loud even when every table & counter space seat is filled. The restaurant is very popular so be prepared to wait 20 minutes for a table if you go during the high peek lunch hour or early for breakfast…

Consistency: Every time we have been so far it has been consistently delicious AND great service! we feel very good about this restaurants prospects 🙂 and come on who doesn’t love breakfast all day? or at least until 3pm!

Parking: Cafe Kaila is located in the Market City Shopping Center on Kapiolani blvd (at the end) in the same area as the Foodland and next to the Fun Factory. The shopping area has limited parking which is shared with all the stores / restaurants but if you are patient or lucky you can always find a spot unless you go on a weekend in which case it can be more challenging.

Giovanni Pastrami

Overall: corkagecorkagecorkage

Service: The service is good at Giovanni Pastrami in Waikiki. The bar has very friendly and attentive bartenders/waitstaff are full of smiles and very attentive to your needs. They can also mix up a mean cocktail!

Food: Giovanni Pastrami’s menu consists of hot and cold deli sandwiches which are delicious, pizzas, appetizers, pastas, soups, salads, burgers, hot dogs and typical bar food. Another great appeal is that they server breakfast all day until closing at midnight which is always a winner if you are itching for some eggs and bacon. The food is ok for bar food and a perk is that they have a fantastic Happy Hour with free cheese pizza with any alcohol purchase between 3-5pm, $5 appetizers and deals on drinks ($3-4 beers, $4 well drinks, $1 off wine).

Favorite Dishes: Reuben Bites (with pastrami), Sliders, Fries, Rueben Sandwich (with corn beef!) and Pizza

Atmosphere: The ambiance is that of a sports bar. They have both table seating and bar seating but both are completely surrounded by flat screen TV’s on all the walls which are really distracting if you are trying to eat but perfect for this type of establishment where everyone has their eyes peeled to a sports game of some sort.

Consistency: Giovanni is consistently average. It’s the type of place you go to for a happy hour drink or to valet your car and grab a quick validation to go somewhere else for dinner in Waikiki. Its absolutely consistently great for a drink!

Parking: One of the very best things about Giovanni Pastrami is that they have valet parking at the Wyndham hotel right next to the bar. After 6pm its $6 to park for 4 hours but after that jumps up to $3 per a half hour so be careful or you can quickly run up a huge bill. Before 6pm you can park for $3 for a flat rate all day. .
