Get Food Fast — Not Fast Food

Ancient Hawaiians used the ‘ōlena root (Turmeric) as a purifier to cleanse the mind and body, and we hope to continue that tradition with our fare at ‘Ōlena by Chef Ron Simon. Simplicity combined with clean and quality ingredients create the most nutritious and flavorful cuisine, and at ‘Ōlena, Chef Ron strives to create on-the-go meals that are healthy and delicious.

We have 10 more days before our family vacation begins. We will be closed in July, and beginning in August (we'll let you know the exact date), we will serve Illy coffee and grab-and-go items inside the MEB lobby because the cafeteria will be closed in August and September for renovation. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook/Instagram for any updates.
