La Tour Cafe Restaurant Review

: Thanh Lam found success with Ba-Le, a chain of Vietnamese take-out spots found throughout the state of Hawaii. He singlehandedly introduced the populace to the Vietnamese sandwich known as banh mi and became a baker in the process, finding it impossible to source the crusty French rolls necessary to the sandwich. Twenty-five-plus years later comes La Tour Cafe. It opens early daily with a light menu of pastries, croissants and breakfast sandwiches and a full range of coffees. Lunch and dinner offers soups, salads, sandwiches (we suggest the croque monsieur and the chicken curry salad with cranberries on a croissant) and flatbreads with toppings from the classic margherita to a local favorite of kalua pork. La Tour Cafe is a good stop all-day long for well prepared food and beverages at reasonable prices.
