Places to Eat Around Campus
Vegetable masala or gyros sandwich; an Angus “Warrior” burger or a quiche and salad; a bento box, Hawaiian plate, or a create-your-own fruit smoothie? You’ll find these ‘ono (delicious) edibles and more just steps away from your classroom on the Mānoa campus. There’s definitely no lack of places to eat at UH Mānoa, where your tastebuds can find an array of American, Mexican and Asian foods that are delicious, moderately priced, healthy and ready to go.

If you want to venture off campus, there are many delicious food options and local grocery stores to choose from in the surrounding neighborhoods of Mō‘ili‘ili and Mānoa. From Indian cuisine in Mō‘ili‘ili to a French-influenced Europeanstyle bakery in Mānoa Marketplace featuring fresh baked breads, pastries, pizzas…you have a multitude of culinary delights to choose from. There is a Safeway and a Long’s Drugs nearby, and if you are interested in trying a different type of market, then you’ll want to check out Nijiya Market, a unique Japanese Supermarket located just down the street from the University, which specializes in all-things Japanese. If you are looking for an all-vegetarian and organic alternative, we also have Down-To-Earth, the only ALL VEGETARIAN natural foods store in Hawai‘i…located right on University Avenue and King Street.
