The owners of Fresh Cafe plan to fully open the 5,000-square-foot restaurant in the former Indigo space in Honolulu’s Chinatown next week.
For the past few months, the cafe has sold pizza and coffee and recently opened its bar. The cafe plans to open its full-service dining room at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
This is the second location that partner Ryan Tanke, Gary Oda and Tiffany Tanakahave opened. The original Fresh Cafe is on Queen Street, while the newest one is replacing Indigo, which closed in August of last year.
Fresh Cafe’s breakfast menu consists of pancakes, eggs and biscuits. The lunch menu offers items such as soups and turkey and tuna sandwiches, while the dinner menu will offer garlic stuffed chicken, pork loin, pasta and steak. Pizza is available for lunch and dinner.
Fresh Cafe is the latest restaurant opening in Chinatown, which is seeing a restaurant renaissance of sorts. Grondin, a French-Latin fusion restaurant at 62 Hotel St., opened in April, joining restaurants Lucky Belly, whose owners are planning on opening a new restaurant called Livestock Tavern on Hotel Street, the Pig and the Lady on King Street and Soul De Cuba on Bethel Street.
