LA TOUR CAFE

LA TOUR CAFE
HONOLULU, HAWAII 

We have been driving by La Tour Cafe for months.  It looks like a very large restaurant from Nimitz Highway.  After a visit to Costco next door, we found a parking spot and went on in.  Wow...not what I was expecting.  La Tour Cafe is a small restaurant with a take-out counter.  There are around 12 tables, a small take-out deli section and a flat screen t.v.  No frills here.  We approached the counter to find a limited menu which is good.  They serve a few soups, salads, Tartines, Panini's, Sandwiches and Flat Bread Pizzas.  I tried The Italian Sandwich ($7.50).  Thin slices of salami, sopressata, mortadella and proschiutto with Harvarti on French Egg Bread.  Served with a house salad and home made pickles.  The bread was the star of this sandwich.  So fresh and light and crunchy.  Liked the meats, italian sauce and pickles.  This was good.  The Meatball Banh Mi Sandwich ($7.50) was a Vietnamese style sandwich with chicken meatballs, pickled carrots and fresh cilantro served on a crunch French Baquette.  Again, the bread was the star.  So fresh and perfect texture and crunch.  I thought the meatballs were tasteless, but my better half loved the sandwich and wants to go back again for another.  The Mac and Cheese ($4) was a huge hit with Keli.  Yummy, great, cheesy and awesome were some of her comments.  I have heard that the burgers are good here.  The La Tour Burger ($8.50) comes with Wagyu Beef, caramelized onions, salsa verde with Havarti.  Can't wait to try this one after my diet.  While at the counter the cashier recommended the Macaroons for which the restaurant is known for.  We tried a chocolate and a coffee.  Not bad, but don't think I would order one again.
