The gist: A French bakery that also sells Singaporean laksa on the weekends.
The food: During the week, Kailua denizens flock here for the French pastries, panini sandwiches, and coffee drinks. On the weekends, however, the Singaporean owner makes laksa—noodles in a spicy coconut broth that are popular in Southeast Asia. Her version is so authentic, you’ll find Southeast Asian expats from all over Oahu visiting just for that dish. Be sure to take home an almond croissant or their vegan, gluten-free chocolate tart.
The cost: Most pastry items and coffee are about $4 to $6. The laksa is $18.
How to book: No reservations. All seating is first come, first served.
