“Super sandwiches”
Review of Kalapawai Market

Every time we visit the beaches around Kailua we stop at Kalapawai Market. Sandwiches are simply fantastic (also changes compared to the menu are possible). At Memorial Day, they sold delicious burgers (but they are not on the menu normally / eventually an option for the future?).

This is the only place to get food at near Kailua beach within walking distance. Given the convenience, we headed there to grab some lunch but were left disappointed given the high reviews both here and on guidebooks. Food was good enough but portions were small for the price (8.50$ for a salad containing few leaves, 4 slices of mozzarella, 4 slices of tomato and oversoaked in balsamic vinaigrette). Sandwich (BLTA) was better. Ordered a fruit smoothie dreaming of fresh fruit (given the location) but realised the glass was being filled with carton juice, and then noticed no fresh fruit except a few bananas were sold in the shop. Given the ‘vegetarian friendly’ label and that we are in Hawaii, that was a bit disappointing.

This little shop and small cafe in Kailua is lovely. You can pick up anything you need for going to the beach, including tasty sandwiches. It's very close by to the beach in Kailua as well. You will not regret stopping here before you head down to the beach. Only thing is there is not much to eat besides sandwiches and salads. If you want a greater variety you can try other places in the area.
