The doors of downtown Dunedin's latest restaurant, The Honu, opened for their first "official" day of business from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday. Chef and owner Kimberly Platt has been working on her "lei'd back cafe" at 516 Grant St. since October.

The Honu's menu is ever-changing, and a variety of options were featured during a multi-day soft opening last week, including a white bean and olive burger, Hawaiian-inspired poke and loco moco, breakfast tacos and a baked fish of the day. Plus, house-made dressings such as honey-orange vinaigrette and ginger pineapple for salads.

While the indoor-outdoor cafe is primarily a lunchtime destination, it plans to offer catering and specialty dinners like luaus in the evening.
