Cafe Waiola by The Curb (1 of 80)
Perk up, coffee lovers: After a brief stint at Ala Moana Center last summer, The Curb once again has a brick-and-mortar spot outside the confines of its regular home on the UH-Manoa campus. Its new spot: the cafeteria of the UH Medical School in Kakaako. A kiosk in the middle serves up coffee creations by Sumner Ohye and his barista crew, while food stations by Neale Asato of @blkbox and the prep line at Vintage Cave dish up breakfast and lunch specials like handmade burgers with bacon jam and pulled-pork tacos with pickled onions. Bread comes from Chris Sy of local artisan fame. The cafe is open weekdays for brews, breakfast and lunch, and starting February, on weekends for caffeine only. And yes, it's open to the public. — Mari Taketa
