Diner Reviews
  • "Food was very good and the service was great on this visit."

  • "My past experience with Grand Cafe and Bakery has been very good however this time my first choice was not available (Turkey Sandwich) so I ordered the braised short rib which was not up to the quality they are known for. One of the pieces was overcooked and dry. I am sure this will not be the case if I were to go to this restaurant again so I will still frequent Grand Cafe and Bakery."

  • "Grand Cafe is a nice place to try for lunch. Service was friendly and our meals were good. Menu selection was ok. I thought prices were a bit on the high side. The unique location makes you feel like you are a bit away from the usual downtown rush, which is nice."

  • "This little café is a nice change from the usual downtown eateries - it is tucked away in the bottom of the Honolulu Art Museum. The food was good, service was very friendly. I thought the prices were a bit high for what we had, so I would not be going here often, but is a good place for a lunch meeting with clients."

  • "The ambiance is fresh and the food tasty. Add great service and you have one of the finest lunch venues in downtown Honolulu."

  • "Great location, good food. The only complaint is that while our server was pleasant, he seemed to have too many tables to attend to. The house iced tea comes with free refills, that was a plus. Go early as the restaurant gets noisy when it's busy."

  • "I used to love the Grand Cafe and Bakery in Chinatown. I was very sad when I went there one day, and it was gone. Imagine my delight when one of my dearest friends told me it was now in the Hawaii State Art Museum. I shouldn't have gotten too excited. The Sunday brunch at the new location leaves much wanting: I wanted a lunch item to go with the breakfast items because it's called "brunch"; I wanted a menu that matched the one online; I wanted more reasonable prices; I wanted the lemon cake to be as good as it used to be. One should not want so much, I guess."

  • "Probably not a fair review because I loved their old location in Chinatown. The food was ok, but not fabulous. Same with the service. Would I go back? Probably not."
