Not just because your favorite coffee shop or cocktail didn’t win. But some of your top picks weren’t even on the list.
For starters, nominees had to be on Oahu, so Neighbor Island eateries were left off. And secondly, the nominee lists were narrowed down to just five options — and you know there are more than five great food trucks and bakeries on the island.
So I wanted to know which restaurants, bakeries, nightclubs and hole-in-the-wall eateries you felt were left out.
Here are some of mine:
Best bakery: T. Komoda Store
Here were the Best of Nonstop categories:
Most creative sweet treats
