Musubi Cafe Iyasume was another place we couldn't visit last year because of our tight schedule, so it was down on my list of go-to places! Surprisingly, it was just down the street from our hotel at Hyatt Regency Waikiki which made it the perfect spot to have breakfast for one of the days we had to get up early since they opened at 6:30 AM.

Small shop with their menus posted on their window.

Bento boxes pre-cooked - perfect meal on the go.


We ordered teriyaki, kimchi and two bacon and egg musubi. We also ordered a small beef bowl to share.

Bacon and Egg Musubi 

This was the perfect breakfast meal because it contained a strip of bacon and egg! The rice was soft and the spam was delicious!

 Teriyaki Spam

They marinated the spam in a teriyaki sauce which also tasted great!

 Fried Chicken

On our last day, we went back to Musubi Cafe Iyasume to have lunch because we really wanted their beef bowl. We also ordered their fried chicken to have on the side.

The fried chicken was precooked and packaged on the table for a quick grab and go. They do, however, heat the chicken up for you if you wish to eat at the cafe. The chicken was a bit soggy, probably because they microwaved it. Minus the sogginess, the chicken tasted pretty good and would have been extra tasty if they were pan fried.

Beef Bowl (large) 

This was the star of our meal (On both days we ordered it)! The beef was extremely soft and very tasty. The sauce they used to marinate the beef was savory with a bit of sweetness coming from the caramelized onions. This would have been great with a side of kimchi. Highly recommend this!!

 Spicy Tuna and Mayo Rice Ball

Don't underestimate the size of musubi and rice balls because they're really filling! This rice ball was shaped into a triangle and filled with spicy tuna and mayo, then wrapped in nori. It was pretty good, but I preferred the musubi.

If you're looking for a breakfast joint that offers quick meals to go or just looking for a place to grab a snack, I highly recommend Musubi Cafe Iyasume because they offer many delicious items that are prepared very fast and they have several pre-made bento boxes.

  1. Their manager rocks! Thanks to their great team, I'm so happy I chose these lofty spaces for my event! I had a great time here and think the atmosphere is as good as it gets. I will be astonished if I ever find a negative review on these guys.
