City Cafe

1518-F Makaloa St.
Honolulu, HI 96814

City Cafe may not look like much from the outside, but inside they offer a variety of bubble teas, shave ice, sandwiches, and other food options. On a side street off of Ke'eaumoku, City Cafe is near both Ala Moana shopping center, Walmart, and Don Quijote market.

I literally have driven past City Cafe hundreds of times without realizing it was there. It's location isn't bad, there are so many stores and restaurants in the area, but there are only few parking stalls. It can be difficult to find parking right in front of the shop. Nevertheless, it is an easy walk from any of the nearby shopping areas.

My Order: Jasmine Green Milk Tea Slush

  • Taste: creamy texture, great jasmine tea flavor, not too sweet
  • Boba: excellent texture with a slightly sweet tea taste
  • Price: $3.50 for tall (16 oz.)

I really enjoyed my bubble tea from City Cafe. I found nothing wrong with it. I can't wait to go back and try more flavors and their Taiwanese style shave ice.

City Cafe also has very reasonable prices. Although when I went, I saw a sign saying that starting July 1st they are raising their prices due to the economy and the rising costs of goods. Hopefully the price increase won't be too much.

I am giving City Cafe 4 bubbles for now since I haven't had the opportunity to try more of their offerings.

4 out of 5 bubbles
