The Sunrise Shack now open at Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort

Offering fresh grinds, delicious drinks and good vibes – The Sunrise Shack – has a new home at the entrance of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. The brightly decorated eatery opened this month and features a superfood-charged menu, from refreshing papaya bowls to energizing bullet coffee.

With its mission to help people “feel happy healthy and strong” – The Sunrise Shack is a brainchild of some of Hawaii’s top surfers: the Smith brothers (Alex, Travis and Koa) alongside friend Koa Rothman. After growing-up living off the land in Hawaii, the group decided to share their healthy lifestyle with the world by creating a menu comprised of food and drink that serve a purpose yet are simple and nutritious.

“We are so happy to bring our Sunrise Shack to Waikiki! It’s been fun sharing the beach vibes of our original Sunset Beach location with Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. We are serving a new, expanded healthy menu of Bullet Coffee, tropical smoothie bowls, salads, sandwiches and more! Come on in and feel the good vibes! Aloha,” said co-founders Alex, Travis and Koa Smith.

“The Sunrise Shack is a perfect complement to our line-up of iconic surf-centric dining options including Duke’s Waikiki and Hula Grill,” said Revell Newton, general manager of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. “For visitors seeking a healthy grab-and-go to eat on the beach or fuel up before island adventures – The Sunrise Shack is the place.”

Outrigger guests and visitors alike can now enjoy an array of mouth-watering options that pack loads of health benefits into each bite and every sip. Known for its popular bullet coffee, Sunrise Shack proudly serves Laird Hamilton’s brew that is lightly blended with coconut oils and grass-fed butter to provide plenty of healthy fats while promoting long lasting energy, mental clarity and assistance in intermittent fasting.

Homemade smoothie bowls are also served daily and blended with refreshing tropical fruits like acai, coconut, mango and more, then topped with gluten-free granola and other options such as goji, cacao nibs and hemp seeds. Sunrise Shack’s alternate breakfast options include superfood-rich recipes like a creamy coconut chia pudding, a salted banana granola bowl and gluten-free oatmeal with various delectable toppings.

Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort was the first property to bear the Outrigger name and its location was home to the original Outrigger Canoe Club. The beachfront resort now offers Signature Experiencesconnected to its surf culture including a historic surf tour, surfing and stand-up paddle lessons, stand-up paddle surf yoga and even a surf valet for ‘board meetings.’
