Hawaii Mom Blog: Waioli Kitchen & Bake Shop

Waioli Kitchen & Bake Shop

Waioli Kitchen & Bake Shop is more than just a bakey and restaurant, it's a training ground for individuals who want and are given hope and a chance to learn life skills. But you would never know it, if you came here without the knowledge of this restaurant's history and mission.

The restaurant is located in Manoa, which is primarily a residental area. It rains here a lot, which is why the grounds are so lush and green.  

The menu is limited with just a handful of breakfast and luinch items, as well as baked goods. My friends and I met here for lunch on a weekday and really enjoyed our meal.

Chocolate Chip Cookie

Tarta de Santiago

Blueberry Scone

 The ingredients tasted fresh and you can tell the dishes were carefully crafted and put together with care and effort, not just slapped together and thrown on a plate. the BLTA is served with Japanese milk bread, and the burger is made with grassfed beef from the Big Island and served with a grilled housemade bun. I really liked the burger - it was very juicy!

A 3% fee is added to every check to support their mission of training and recovery. I did not mind paying this considering what it's for. The workers here were friendly and seemed to care about their jobs and what they were doing. To help support a business whose mission is to help its own employees is reason enough for me to keep coming back.
