Led by Chef Joe Friday, Calii Love’s menu is inspired by Hawaiian staples and positive vibes, with items named after emotions. It features a fresh, seamless combination of superfood smoothies, coffee, vegan snacks, acai, smoothie, signature poké, and DIY bowls that can be topped with colourful ingredients that include blueberries, raspberries, pineapples and mangoes, to name a few. With a menu that offers healthy alternatives for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – all ingredients are sustainable and locally sourced, delivered daily to support farmers and communities.

Calii Love’s refined, minimalistic design, and open environment was built by TYPE-D Living and offers a counter service experience in a cozy space that blends laid back beachy vibes in a city setting. Artwork and murals by Kayla Pongrac surround the space with surfboard artwork done by Sarah Skrlj. With a lively teal exterior and vibrant “Aloha” tiled art scattered neatly on the front door step, it invites locals in to eat good, feel good, and do good. Designed to offer a warm and hospitable atmosphere, the interior is welcoming with pops of bold accents of colour and animated art throughout the space promoting health and wellness, inside-out. Inspired by a Californian and Hawaiian way of living – surfboards, wooden benches, tropical cushions and coffee table books bring it all together effortlessly. The space seats 65 people in total sitting and standing.
