What Kono’s Does For Students & Faculty


For some people, their years in college were some of the best years of their life.  We asked around and they said the people they met and the places they went were what they will always remember.  Many revolved around places where they created the best memories with friends and food.

Since many memories are shared around food, we offer 15% off student and faculty discounts at all 3 Kono’s locations (Haleiwa, Kailua and Honolulu) year round as long as your ID is valid.

Every student knows that studying can be a lot of work and very hard to stay focused.  Also, healthy eating is easily psuhed down to the end fo the priority list. Smart snacking during studying can actually keep your brain focused and increase the amount of information you retain.
