This locale is perfect for people who live within walking distance (or who lack transportation altogether) as parking is limited. If transportation is not an issue and potential patrons prefer a clean, well-maintained, friendly environment, I suggest driving, cycling, or busing past this place. The "funky gigs" Karen L. mentions in her review are a thing of the past. They were offered by a "non profit" organization named "Unity Crayons" who charged $5 (tax free) a pop to throngs of Goth-attired attendees most very well behaved but some of whom participated, on occasion, in "moshing". Moshing is "the act of jumping or bumping into an audience. Sometimes banned because injuries are often a result..." (voodooglowskulls.tripod.com/dictionary.html). There used to be a large glass window on the Waialae side of this "funky little coffee shop" which is missing due to moshing. This former bank is a very nice space whose potential is not fully realized. While the punk gigs and moshing are a thing of the past, the people that allowed, ran, benefited from and/or hosted these poorly organized and supervised events are still around--running the coffee shop.
