Fresh Cafe strives to kindle both healthy eating habits and creativity with a locally sourced menu and regular cultural performances, which help the eatery fit in nicely within the trendy industrial district of Kaka'ako. Its chefs whip up sandwiches, salads, and soups using fresh portobello mushrooms from the organic Small Kine farm, lettuce from the family-owned Otsuji farm, and vegetables from the pesticide-eschewing Ho Farms. The baristas, meanwhile, press each espresso beverage with handpicked beans from Sunbean Coffee.
Wooden tables and cushy chairs are scattered in the colorful café alongside bookshelves filled with reading materials. Bright neon signs broadcast colorful messages from the walls, none of which are threatening or syntactically unsound. A green awning stretches over a lengthy patio where vibrant murals beam down from the walls onto an abundance of chairs and tables. The café's large warehouse hosts slam poetry, live music, and art performances.
