Implosion at Grand Café and Bakery

Gail Jennings of the Hawaii Diner website and podcast keeps her finger firmly on the pulse of the Hawaii restaurant scene. Today she has a scoop on serious trouble at a popular and well-known Chinatown eatery in her article: Grand Cafe Revolt. From Gail's report I think there is serious risk that this popular breakfast and lunch spot may not survive.

One of the owners, Mona Chang Vierra, is known for her work on womens' issues, and there's a sign behind the register proudly proclaiming that the Café is a women-owned business. I know that Dr. Vierra takes pride in all that she has accomplished there, and hope that she will find a way to work things out with her staff (now former staff?). If everyone is willing to try again, perhaps with adjustments, then there is a chance we'll get to enjoy their great food again. It can be done.
