It wasn’t until the 1950s that the stunning leaded glass windows were added to the chapel by Erica Karawina. Her glasswork depicts local people as angels and saints and tells the story of Noah’s Ark, boasting a vibrant rainbow promising no more floods. The vibrant rainbow seems to fit incredibly well with rainbow-clad Manoa Valley where the chapel and tea house are located.
The Waioli Tea Room has gone through many changes over the years - first a school, then a place for orphan girls to learn the culinary arts. Since that time it has also gone through several different leases by local business owners. The current occupants have brought back the restaurant concept that the Waioli Tea Room has long been known for. The Waioli Tea Room now offers delicious breakfast, lunch, and baked goods. There was an extended period several years ago when the Tea Room was closed and it was a loss felt by the whole community. On the property is the famous Robert Louis Stevenson hut where it is said that Princess Kaiulani used to play and Stevenson did much of his writing while in Hawaii.
