A few years back we started a food truck business whose name sake came from an actual turtle that was brought here from Tulum Mexico his name is Charlie Tulum and he still lives on Indian Rocks Beach to this day. At the same time we were rolling around in the truck; we opened a take-out restaurant in Largo, Florida where we decided that a full service restaurant was the direction we wanted to go and thus bought the property here at 516 Grant Street in Dunedin in September of 2014.
Sadly we closed our doors at the funky little Taco Shack and moved all of our equipment and dreams to Dunedin! After a full year of planning; and another extended stay in Hawaii, early 2016 we are opening our full service breakfast and lunch cafe name appropriately “The HONU”. (means turtle in Hawaiian).
We started gathering recipes back in 2011 when our Chef Kimberly Platt started culinary school and have over 2000 hand written recipes just waiting to jump off the pages and into our pans, bowls & plates. We strive to bring you a menu where every guest can find a favorite dish, even your puppies!
We invite you to come experience our lei’d back cafe and know that we have put our heart and soul into bringing you our version of Aloha spirit!
