You’ll Absolutely Love This 50s Themed Diner In Hawaii

The 1950s were a monumental and transformational decade in American history, especially for the Hawaiian Islands; after all, the Territory of Hawaii was no longer, and, in August 1959, Hawaii legally became an American state. And while the history of this era is fascinating, there’s one aspect of life from the 1950’s we’re simply obsessed with: the classic American diner. Step back in time to an era where “Elvis was King, Marilyn was Queen, and they both drank Coca-Cola” at Honolulu’s Rock Island Cafe, a 50s-themed diner full of nostalgia.

Rock Island Cafe is located at 131 Kaiulani Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815, and is open from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. For an in-depth glimpse of life in 1950s Hawaii, check out these 14 vintage photographs.
