I like this job more than any other job I have had before, in Hawai’i or on the mainland. It’s a very fast-paced restaurant and the shifts go by very quickly. We also get a lot of regulars here so coming to work can be very fun.
I had seen the cafe before and it seemed nice. When I met the manager we hit it off and I started work the next day. I have been there for almost two years since then.
One thing that makes our breakfasts so successful is that we have great early bird specials and serve until 2 p.m. We get a lot of tourists who have just gotten off the plane and still want to eat breakfast food. We are one of the only places that you can get it after noon.
I work both breakfast and dinner. The two are very different but the food is always good. Our night chef is fantastic. All the food he makes tastes great and the presentation is always beautiful. People are very pleased when they see this food set in front of them.
I have always liked helping people. Being a waitress it feels good to make sure that your customers have a good experience. When a server is happy and friendly the customer usually reacts well. I think that is why I have such good relationships with the people who eat at our cafe. I try to be outgoing and smile so that the customers are more at ease. MTW
