City Cafe Again

City Cafe is on Makaloa across from Walgreens. A few days ago I strolled over to pick up lunch.

Owners Scott and Serena told me that they opened up about 2 months ago.
Here's the Deluxe BLT that I ordered ($5.25). It was veeeeery good.
City Club Sandwich ($5.25)
They have a special this month - free Caesar salad with every sandwich. The sandwich also normally comes with chips, so that was a good deal.
Here's a Mango Delight Smoothie ($4.06). I liked that it had a sealed lid so I didn't have to worry about spilling it on the way back.
This is my favorite - I posted pictures of this Shave Ice before, but it deserves a second look. It has custard, mochi balls and azuki beans, sooooo yummy ($3.34)!
This shave ice had gel instead of the azuki beans for coworker Mel who doesn't care for the beans.
Blueberry scone ($1.53). Their scones are made fresh daily.
I liked my sandwich and the shaved ice so much that I called Serena and told her that the florist on the first floor of our building is no longer in business and that the prime location is now vacant. I told her she should move there. She laughed.

Hi everyone, sorry took long to get to the comments. Wendell's downloading songs to iTune so I gotta share the computer.

Oh, what a bummer to have to share computers!! We each have our own otherwise someone would be "killing" someone for hogging the computer!! hahahaha!!!

jalna said...

Hahahaha. Luckily Wendell hardly needs to use the computer . . . although he claims it's because I'm always on.
