Last night, I went to California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) in Kailua. This is located at 609 Kailua Road. A few other locations are in Kapolei, Kahala, and Pearlridge.
Kailua CPK is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Their phone number is (808) 263-2480.
I ordered from the kids’ menu and got the Curly Mac n’ Cheese, which is $5.79. I got edamame on my mac n’ cheese which is an extra 59 cents. The mac n’ cheese is made with rotelle pasta and melted creamy cheese! It’s the most amazing combination!
We got the Spinach and Artichoke Dip as an appetizer. The dip is served warm and tastes so good with the tortilla chips! My brother got the same dish as I did.
My mom got the Carne Asada Pizza which is only for a limited time. She really liked it, especially with the whole wheat crust.
The restaurant is very casual and the Kailua location has outdoor seating which is where we sat. There is a pretty mosaic water fountain to sit around before or after your meal.
CPK is very kid friendly. The hostess gave us drawing activities to keep us busy while we waited. The restaurant is pretty loud so everyone can talk as loud as they want!
There’s a lot of different choices on the kids menu and they offer free refills on drinks. My favorite is the lemonade! Our waitress was very friendly and checked on us often.
I would definitely return to CPK. It’s a nice place to eat, the food is great and it’s all for a really good value.
Would you believe I had leftovers for the next night?! Two nights of mac n’ cheese! I give CPK Kailua five out of five stars!
