Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Known for its gorgeous beaches, it’s no wonder Kailua excels in casual outdoor dining.

This relaxed eatery offers Hawaiian-American breakfast and lunch dishes, as well as local favorite Mochiko Chicken.
Serving up Hawaiian breakfast specialties, Cinnamon's Restaurant is a laid-back diner with fresh food and a family feel. With an emphasis on wholesome ingredients, the menu includes omelets and crab cakes, as well as the restaurant’s signature red velvet pancakes. 
For a quick coffee with friends or a grab-and-go lunch, the full-service deli at Kalapawai Market is a frequent stop for Kaka’ako locals. Enjoy the many breakfast options, sandwiches, deli selections, and even pizza. A local secret, the shaved ice counter at surf shop Island Snow Hawaii offers a delicious keiki cup with strawberry and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 
For a brewery-to-table experience, check out Maui Brewing Co. As they like to say, stop by for a meal but stay for a pint! Featuring a charming, open-air interior, as well as patio seating, this is the place to enjoy island-inspired cuisine, fresh, locally sourced produce, and craft beers, all with a friendly, family-oriented vibe.
