Ono Hawaiian Cafe closes in Boise

Ono Hawaiian Café, 2170 Broadway Ave., in Boise, has closed after changing ownership in January.

When founder Mike Mohica sold the restaurant to focus on Kanak Attack Catering — located at the PowerHouse Event Center, 621 W. 17th St. — new owner Ed Scott kept the staff and said he planned to move forward with the same menu.

That ended on the eatery’s last day, April 22.

“We didn’t have the working capital to keep the operations going,” Scott said in a press release.

recovery?

So this is the recovery that's going on? I had no idea...

that's the restaurant business you idiot

most fail within six months due to under capitalization and your comment just fails on so many levels that the only joke here is the original poster. I didn't see your comment on "Dow Jones average hits highest mark since '07" do you only go negative?

I am sure it will reopen

Mike (old owner) carried the note when he sold it. I am sure he will reopen it soon.

I hope it re-opens soon.

I hope it re-opens soon. Some friends and I went in to try it and were intrigued by their buffet, but it was at a certain time on the weekend and we didn't feel like waiting to eat for another 3 hours. Too bad.

Also off topic but regarding closed businesses-I happened to drive by the Scandinavia Today furniture store on Fairview and was shocked to see it was cloed! Yes it was high priced but they had some really unique items in there. When did they close? Was there any warning or final sales? All I came up with a Google search was they filed for bankruptcy in January of last year (according to the Press Tribune)

Been a long since the Scans had any designs on Boise.
