Chaminade University of Honolulu lies near the bottom of Waiʻalae Avenue, the central business street of the Kaimukī suburb known for its ethnically diverse, small-business dining establishments, from plantation-era eats (St. Louis Delicatessen, an okazuya across from the campus entrance), to Asian/French Hawaiʻi Regional Cuisine fusion (old-school 3660 on the Rise, at the top of Waiʻalae), to contemporary versions of Native Hawaiian staples (Mud Hen Water, a few minutes away by car), to popular plate-lunch and poke restaurants (Zippyʻs, the Obama-beloved chain which grinds out dine-in or take-out meals, is about a 7-minute walk; Fresh Catch is a little closer to campus), and everything in between. Vietnamese pho noodle soup joints and nouveau-Asian food abound; WW-II-era pre-statehood hamburger stands and other diners reflect Asian settlersʻ historical movement from plantation labor to urban family-owned businesses (W&M Burger makes for a quick stroll from Chaminade; the working-class-beloved St. Louis Drive In stands next to St. Louis Deli across from the campus entrance); and plant-based and vegetarian-friendly restaurants and cafes (especially nearing the top of Waiʻalae) present healthy options. The neighboring Kapahulu area, bordering Waikīkī and Diamond Head, also includes authentic Native Hawaiian restaurants such as Hailiʻs and Da Ono Hawaiian Food.
