The sister pub to Aloha Beer Co. in Kakaako has recently opened in Downtown Honolulu, located in the brand new renovated Central Pacific Bank location off of Alakea and S. King Streets. Within the spanking new lobby of the branch you'll also find a Starbucks, sit-down seating, WiFi and easy order, grab-and-go access.
The concept is quick service, meets pau hana and they also offer alcoholic beverages including brews. The bank lobby also serves as a public meeting space and offers distanced tables, open seating and natural bright sunlight for a relaxed overall feel.
The menu includes their famous flatbreads, sandwiches, salads, fries and beer of course. The flatbreads are sized well enough for one person to be content and the sandwiches are massively generous in portion. We thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ Chicken Flatbread, the Tuna Melt was hearty and gigantically dripping with tuna and lettuce. Meanwhile, the cheesy waffle fries were flavorful but disappointing as the packaging left them very moist and lacked crunch or crispness.
Overall, this is great value for the price, easy access and great to support local businesses and new developments. It is located downtown, but not in the heart of downtown so it is easier to find parking and just two crosswalks away from Iolani Palace.
