Sweet Home Waimanalo Cafe & Market

East Oahu


In the little town of Waimanalo on highway 72, is a sweet little café serving local, healthy fare.  Situated right beside the road and resembling a road stop, the owners create homemade, real food with a focus on utilizing locally grown and, where possible, organic produce.  The menu features gourmet greens and vegetables, homemade sandwiches, tacos, wraps, and a variety of smoothies and salads.  It’s a great little place to grab a bite to eat en route from the windward side of Oahu to Honolulu, or vice versa.

I ordered the Beef Brisket Sandwich with local greens.  It came with caramelized onion, and was served on a Turkish bread baguette.  The beef was a little salty but the greens were fresh and tasty.  The Acai Smoothie (strawberry, blueberry, banana, apple juice, acai) accompanied the sandwich quite well and I could tell it was made with fresh ingredients.  The chocolate chip cookies were amazing! The service was a little slow but the staff were friendly and welcoming.

The owners live on a farm in the Waimanalo area and are passionate about sustainable business and they promote local products and services through their café and market.  The market includes a small gallery where local art is displayed, as well as various local crafts and gifts.  A unique feature of the place is a ‘Farmroof’ atop the building, where they grow some herbs and greens for the café meals.  The ‘Sweet Home’ folks are also aiming to become increasingly self-sufficient by planting banana and papaya trees for their smoothies as well as herbs, salad greens and edible flowers to contribute to the nutritious meals that they serve.

Sweet Home Waimanalo is a great little place to stop by for a snack, a meal or a smoothie as a healthy alternative to a roadside highway take out venue.
