Hawaiian Aroma

Hawaiian Aroma

This little cafe just opened up in the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber hotel.  It’s an open air cafe located right off to the side of the pool. They offer not only coffee, but fresh sandwiches, pastries and Italian Sodas or Cremosa (Italian soda with cream).

  The prices are a little on the high-end which is totally expected in Waikiki, but even after letting them know that I was Kama’aina (local resident) they didn’t offer me a discount *sad face*.  So unfortunately I only bought a Peach Cremosa that costs me a whopping $6+ with tax. The taste was die-licious, but come on I know what goes into an Italian Soda and that is pretty damn expensive for a 16oz cup!

Being that this is more expensive than Starbucks, without the reward program I should add, I may not be going back here too often.  It is a really beautiful cafe though.  If a couple of co-workers wanted to grab some coffee and lounge for a bit I would definitely spend the extra cash for the comfort.

  1. It is so cute! We’ve been exploring the last week or so;getting our feet wet. We went to Gyu-Kaku which was good, different. Was a little sad to learn it was a franchise but we were hungry and went with it. We plan on taking our family to the one at Windward Mall since it is by our condo. Hopefully it is as decent as the one in Waikiki. We have also been to the Marukame Udon as well. That is a favorite of mine. No idea if it is comparable to real Udon or not, but it beats the Ramen I had at the Royal Hawaiian food court.

    If you have any dinner suggestions I will happily take them! Walking distance of Waikiki beach is preferred. We are still in our hotel for a couple more weeks.


    • I hear that visitors in Japan say that it is some of the best Udon they’ve tasted at Marukame. I hear that Buho is good. It’s Mexican. My absolute favorite restaurant in Waikiki is DoRaku! I eat the Doraku roll, but everything there is really good. It’s located in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center on the 3rd floor above the food court.

      • Hey! Thanks!! The Udon is amazing! I love it! Like, a lot. It is also super cool to see that they make a lot of the stuff there. We haven’t had good Korean yet, so that is totally something we will have to try!
