You’ll be surprised how few there are in Hawaii.
So when I heard about Sweet E’s Cafe opening up in Kilohana Square — it’s breakfast and lunch only — I couldn’t wait to try it.
Sweet E’s opened about two months ago by Ethel Kim, a twenty-something former barista at Starbucks who’s always wanted to run her own breakfast joint.
And let me tell you, she does a bang-up job.
Kim is the only one in the kitchen — from what I’ve seen — and how she delivers stuffed French toasts, kalua pig eggs Benedicts and some of the best hash browns you’ll ever eat without much waiting is beyond me.
She must have elves back there.
Here’s what my recent breakfast looked like:
Sweet E's Cafe
Sweet E’s Cafe, Kilohana Square, 1016 Kapahulu Ave. #185. Hours: 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily. Phone: (808) 737-7771.

Dog kimono or yukata from Inu Inu Hawaii (www.inuinuhawaii.com)
Price: $30 online or at pet boutiques such as Calvin & Susie in Kilohana Square
The gist: Bored of the usual dog outfits? Or your pooch is quite the fashion diva? Get a kimono (or yukata) from Honolulu-based Inu Inu Hawaii, which specializes in unique Asian-inspired apparel for dogs. They come in all sizes — in fact, you can custom order ones for larger breeds — and patterns. Imagine your Rottweiler in one of these!
Best for: Dog owners, of course!
