FUUD: Contemporary Cafe in Makiki Heights

The other day I was craving tomato soup.

But I didn’t feel like fighting the crowd — OK, the parking — at Ala Moana Center for my favorite bowl at Nordstrom Cafe. And we were in the Makiki area. So we took a right turn off Nehoa Avenue and headed to The Contemporary Museum Honolulu, where I knew tomato soup would be on the cafe menu.

Here’s what we ate:

First off, the Cooke-Spalding home atop Makiki Heights is worth the price of admission. But it’s fair to say you won’t regret walking around The Contemporary Museum Honolulu, either. It’s the only museum in the state of Hawaii devoted exclusively to contemporary art.
