Foodie Friday: Coffee Casa

This is a quiet, cozy place to hole up with a book or laptop for a break from your usual routine. They open early, at 7AM, will have you covered from breakfast to lunch with tastey creations known around the island. There are lighter options, like my granola and fruit bowl pictured above, or comfort […]

Foodie Friday: Nicoli Cafe

Smoothies and muffins and scones oh my! And cookies and coffee and other seasonal goodies that are sure to please your sweet tooth. I happened upon this cute pastry place on my way to my favorite cinnamon roll place (see the Brown post). I’m a sucker for sweets so I had to go inside. The […]

Foodie Friday: WaGyu Cafe

Wagyu Café is beautiful inside, outside, and on the plate! Every angle is bursting with color and whimsy. I absolutely had to try the rainbow bread brunch plate. The bread was lightly toasted with plenty of fluffy, freshness left that the sweet flavor still came through. The oranges, kiwi, and pineapple were juicy and at […]

Foodie Friday: Good Day Coffee

Good Day Coffee has become a regular in my coffee café rotation. I saw the menu once when I was fairly new to the island and I was immediately hooked. I mean just yum! They pile their fresh, soft rye bread high with creamy avocado. They then top that with feta, nuts, and a hint […]

Thanks to a backpacking trip, and a cargo ship, almost two decades ago they found themselves in love with Okinawa. So much so that they eventually decided to call it […]

Foodie Friday: DME

Four words for you: Nitro Cold Brew Coffee!! After driving past this place dozens of times and hearing great things about it from everyone, we decided to check it out. I had no idea that they had this refreshing, perfect-for-summer coffee until I read over their menu. If you’re like me and you like a […]

Foodie Friday: Sunstache

We saw this little place last time we visited this rest stop (see Beapa from Aug 9th) and knew then that we would be back to test it out. In this row of containers-turned-shops/restaurants, this place is the perfect spot to duck out of the sun for a bit. Enjoy the beach vibe music, rich […]

The smell of coffee being roasted and ground will lead you through the whimsical, garden seating (complete with teepee for kids to play in) and into the cozy shop. Their menu is simple so they can make each cup and […]
