After my first visit to Pa'ina Cafe several years ago I vowed never to return.  Hated the place and have managed to stay away for a long time.  When my Daughter begged me for a Poke Bowl and insisted that we go to Pa'ina Cafe I gave in and we went back to the place that gives me mayonnaise nightmares (see older blog post below).  I remember not liking the place because it seemed a bit dirty and when we entered this time I felt the same way.  As we stood in line my only thought was how fast could we get out of this place.  The place was hot and to me uncomfortable.  My girls ordered Small Poke Bowls ($7.25) and added Furikake (.50).  The Bowls come with White or Brown Rice.  They said the Poke did not taste fresh and was not a high quality.  Some of the fish was brown and both of them said they did not care for the flavor.  Said that Poke from Foodland was ten times better.  I went for the Italiano Sandwich ($7.95) which on my first visit was drenched in mayonnaise.  This time I specifically requested no mayo.  The sandwich was not bad and the the bread was light and fresh.  Not a bad sandwich this time.  I think it is safe to say that we will never return to Pa'ina Cafe.  I know I will not.
