Serving what you crave since 1932.
Kalapawai Market pays homage to small town markets, which became neighborhood hubs uniquely shaped by the people it served. Our signature look has become a symbol of a simpler time.
Our food is designed to fuel every local lifestyle. Our classic favorites are inspired by home cooked meals, backyard bbqs and beachside picnics, because we know how Hawaii loves to eat. We are a family business that treats every team member as one of our own. That warm, welcoming vibe is felt by everyone who visits.
