Aloha from Wai’oli Tea Room & Bakery, Manoa, Hawaii

I’m super into teas, so I’ve been meaning to check out the Wai’oli Tea Room since I first heard about it. I was a little bummed on their selection of teas (one of those “choose a tea bag from the box” type of places), but the general ambience and the lunch food more than made up for it. It’s sort of a garden setting, so birds fly in and try to land on your table and eat straight off your plate, so the diligent waiter sometimes has to bring out a water blaster gun and shoot them with water. Apparently it’s the only thing that’ll keep the birds from landing on your sandwich.
