Hawaiian Aroma Caffé Opens Its Third Location at Holiday Inn Beachcomber

It’s only a matter of time before this hidden gem becomes Waikiki’s best coffee shop. A simple ride up the escalator and off to the left in Holiday Inn Beachcomber’s lobby area is an open, hip new coffee shop adjacent to the pool.

The café first opened its doors in April 2016, but has remained an insider’s best-kept secret in Waikiki. Combining European flair and Hawaiian hospitality, the high-ceiling space features a cozy nook with an Instagram-able chalkboard mural, an eye-catch living wall with ferns in terracotta pots, and vintage surf trophies that transport you to Hawaii’s yesteryears.

 Peruse the chalkboard menu board for locally-roasted artisanal coffees sure to please a persnickety coffee-lover with a worldly list that includes Estate-grown Guatemalan coffee, Peruvian and Mexican blends, a Waialua blend from Oahu’s North Shore and three exclusive Kona blends from Hawaii’s Big Island. More impressive is the fact that all custom roasts are made in Hawaii with Italian standards, giving the coffee some serious European edge.

Those looking for an out-of-the-ordinary selection of sweet coffee treats (served iced or hot), should look over the selection that includes Nutella (hazelnut) Latté, Coco Choco (chocolate with coconut), Dolce Banana (chocolate with banana) and Aroma Amore (white chocolate with raspberry).

Owned and operated by the talented power couple, husband Chef Jonathan Rotmensch, and wife, Mor Rotmensch, Hawaiian Aroma Caffé also boasts a notable and delicious food menu that seamlessly incorporates the Rotmenschs’ journeys in panini form. The couple both grew up in the Middle East and Europe, transplanting to Hawaii while cultivating an appreciation for Asian traditions, picking up conversational Japanese along the way. It’s safe to say that the Rotmenschs’ intuitively understand people and the importance of crafting a sensory experience through coffee and food.

Guests will enjoy the range of gourmet paninis like the Spicy Tuna Club, a pineapple and habanero marinated Angus roast beef with roasted peppers called the PPP (Paradise Pineapple Panini), Spicy Chicken, Caprese and a rotating Special of the Day that quickly sells out (keep an eye out for the ham and brie panini with truffle-infused honey!). Paired with breakfast options that include the Hawaiian Aroma Acai Bowl, Breakfast Croissants, six kinds of Belgium Waffles and omelet paninis, locals and visitors in Waikiki will quickly find this the optimal breakfast and lunch spot during the week and brunch favorite over the weekends.

Hawaiian Aroma Caffé currently has three locations: The Davies Pacific Building in Downtown Honolulu, Ilikai Hotel, and most recently at Holiday Inn Beachcomber.
