24 Karats Surf launches cafe
The beach style boutique 24 Karats Surf hosted a grand reopening celebration April 25 to mark the debut of its new in-store cafe.
The beach shack-styled cafe at the front of the beach cottage-inspired boutique adds to its leisure vibe, with a simple menu of iced ($3.50) or hot Waialua Coffee ($3) available to shoppers, who can sip and relax while browsing the store's collection of T-shirts, shorts, hoodies and other casual apparel.
Customers can also purchase pancake mix and packaged coffee at the café counter, and more collaborative food products will be available later this year.
The Japan-based 24 Karats Surf opened in 2010, specializing in casual apparel inspired by 1970s American culture, which has won the brand a celebrity following in Japan.
24 Karats Surf is at 280 Beach Walk Ave. and is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Call (808) 924-0024.
