Download Menu

Happy Hour from 5 to 7pm for 2 dollar drink specials and diner deals.

Our entire Downbeat menu is available for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Late Night.

Downbeat Diner is inspired by classic American diners and serves up many familiar dishes like burgers, sandwiches, milkshakes, and fries, but also focuses on healthy vegetarian and vegan options as well. Along with this, Downbeat only uses grass fed Hawaii free range beef for their hamburgers, and as much local produce as possible. Downbeat believes that good comfort food should come from good sources and should be enjoyed by omnivores and vegetarians alike.

"Was there on opening night... What a great place. Had the loco moco and was so full that I had to take dessert to go (Otto Cake). Simply delicious. The staff was great. Instantly became my favorite diner."

"Even as we walked into Downbeat, the modern diner decor and cozy feel was enough to have me praying to the gods that the food and service would be up to snuff enough for me to make this a regular stop on my Chinatown circuit. We sat at the bar and our very friendly bartender - Serena - gave us menus and gave us the breakdown about their alcohol policy."

The basket of fritters are a MUST GET, though. Big pieces, a cup of caramel sauce, and fritters so soft and sweet that the sauce is almost an after thought. if you MUST get dessert, get the basket of fritters.

Monday through Thursday 11am-3am and Friday and Saturday 11am-4am.
