About the Waioli Tea Room:
The Waioli Tea Room was built in 1922 and it was originally a school for a children's home. The building is listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places. Today the tea room sits on property owned by the Salvation Army of Hawaii and it is a popular spot for breakfast and luncheon. The menu includes items such as salads, egg dishes, sandwiches, desserts, fancy coffees, non-alcoholic fruit drinks, and a variety of teas. Traditional afternoon tea is also available, if reservations are made 24 hours in advance.

Matthew Gray Waioli Tea Room Review
This 2001 review by Honolulu Advertiser food writer Matthew Gray includes a description of the tea room, information about the owners and the pastry chef, and a description of the breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea menu items. Note that the traditional afternoon tea meal is now only available with 24 hour advance reservation. (An aside... don't miss taking one of Matthew Gray's delicious and informative Hawaii Food Tours when you are visiting Oahu. Those tours are great fun!).
