The Cheesecake Factory, Honolulu

With delicious tropical cocktails, gigantic tasty salads and a lively atmosphere filled with live music by night, it’s no wonder that the queue for The Cheesecake Factory often spills out onto the Waikiki strip!

The Cheesecake Factory is a large scale U.S chain restaurant known, as the name suggests, for their variety of cheesecakes. While the majority of the menu is devoted to cheesecake and typical American meals, there are some great vegan options too!

Vegan options include:
– Vegan Cobb Salad
– Soy-glazed Edamame
– Veggie Burger (minus cheese and mayo)
– Kale & Quinoa Salad (minus parmesan cheese)
– Evelyn’s Favorite Pasta
– Falafel Salad (minus fetta)

The Honolulu based Cheesecake Factory sits on the main strip along Waikiki by the beach. Although the restaurant is huuge, there is often a line trailing out of the doors onto the strip. The staff are so upbeat and friendly and happy to help navigate through the extensive menu.

Live music plays by night and overall there is a fun and lively atmosphere throughout the restaurant.

Serving sizes are HUGE, so go hungry or be prepared to take home a doggy bag. The bar is well stocked and if cocktails are your thing, you will not be disappointed! My favourite was a smoothie-like mix of berries, banana and coconut rum though you can never go wrong with one of the cocktails served in a fresh Hawaiian pineapple!

The service, food, drinks and atmosphere are great and the variety in the menu makes this a great place to go with friends and family, no matter if everyone is vegan or not.

  1. We used to live a few minutes from a Cheesecake Factory and this salad was on the menu there. It was one of my favorite! They have some other salads too that are amazing! They are always crowded too known for their delicious, affordable, huge portions.
