It’s a fitting stage for the cafe’s culinary theater, where performances are played out behind an all-access panorama of windows that peer into the restaurant’s inner workrooms. Diners are inevitably transfixed, a captivated audience in awe of the gleaming mozzarella machine, the still-swirling batch of pistachio gelato and the flour-coated hands of bakers massaging heaps of dough.

Of all the places you think you'd find a restaurant where you can order a Hawaiian breakfast. Inside the walls of Gardena Bowl is the Gardena Bowl Coffee Shop, where the menu consists of regular American fare right next to both Japanese and Hawaiian specialties.
