Moena Cafe at Kapolei’s Ka Makana Alii

We’ve dined at Moena Cafe’s Hawaii Kai location (see this post) on numerous occasions. So, when their new location at Ka Makana Alii (Kapolei’s newest mall) opened, we had to check it out…a few times.

If you’ve been to Moena Cafe’s Hawaii Kai location, then the first thing that you’ll notice at the new Kapolei location is how open and spacious it is. Don’t be mistaken, though, because just like the Hawaii Kai location, there will be a line during peak breakfast and brunch times.



This is the Acai Bowl for those looking for a punch of antioxidants.


If you’re looking for a hearty meal then the Kalua Pork Eggs Benedict are always a good choice. Hollandaise sauce is generously drizzled over the eggs and the roasted garlic bread base.


Moena Cafe also has seafood lovers covered with their Crab Eggs Benedict…


Of course, they’ve got omelettes on the menu. We tried the healthy Veggie Omelet with spinach, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, cheese, and topped with avocado and the Portuguese Sausage Omelet topped with avocado.



This is the corned beef and hash, Moena Cafe Style, made with potatoes, onions and two eggs.


Sometimes, you just need a good breakfast sandwich…and Moena Cafe has got one! This breakfast sandwich features a tasty piece of apple smoked bacon (or ham) and comes with avocado, egg, spinach, cheese & tomatoes.


For the true Moena Cafe diehard…the menu boils down to two items, the Short Rib Loco Moco and the Strawberry & Milk Pancakes. I’m not kidding when I say that I’ve dreamt of both dishes. The Short Rib Loco Moco pairs well with the fried rice. If you visit Moena Cafe and can only order one dish…then get the Short Rib Loco Moco…and then splurge for dessert with the Strawberry & Milk Pancakes!


Pancakes! Pancakes! Pancakes!
