Fresh Cafe states that its mission is to "support next level dreamers, fearless innovators, and dedicated visionaries." Could there be a more intriguing theme for a coffee shop-slash-bar-slash-restaurant? Probably not. And as one of Honolulu's newest coffee shops and restaurants, Fresh Cafe has taken the town by storm with their inventive menu and array of events.

Along with tasty and healthy food, Fresh Cafe also delivers shows by established and up-and coming-musicians, artists, and other community members. Making a home in the hip Kaka`ako district and surrounded by mostly industrial buildings, Fresh Cafe also has a full bar and gathering place in a warehouse behind and adjacent to the cafe called The Loft in Space.
The cafe serves up a wide variety of salads, homemade cookies and pastries, 100% Kona coffee, bagel sandwiches, soups, breakfasts, and other local foods and crafts. You can also find free internet here. Parking at Fresh Cafe can be hard to find, but they are kind enough to advise parking at the warehouse next door at 839 Queen Street, or on nearby Ward or Cooke Streets, just a short walk from the cafe.
