Coffee

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: Esparza’s

Quick, convenient, funky, and delicious. Esparza’s will feed your Mexican food craving and have you coming back for more. I almost always get the Crazy Carnitas tacos. The spice combo they use transports me to my best friend’s kitchen in San Antonio every time. The flour tortillas are the perfect softness and the salsa bar […]

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 […]

Foodie Friday: Lanai Cafe

I am one of those people who starts their holiday shopping early (like in July). Part of my shopping preparations include finding where I am going to eat a celebratory lunch/dinner after I find all of the things on my list. I spent a few hours at the Rycom mall this past weekend and celebrated […]

Foodie Friday: Travel Edition 2!

Some friends and I recently visited Jeju Island, South Korea. We read a book, The Island of Sea Women, that inspired us to check out the beautiful island the author described. After three days of running, hiking, shopping, and eating delicious local cuisines, we decided to get serious. Serious about desserts!!! Every search engine and […]

Foodie Friday: Mother Coffee

Mother Coffee is one of my go to places when I’m in the mood for great service, delicious coffee, and pancakes! Not just any pancakes though. These are Dutch Baby style skillet pancakes which means you get one, larger pancake served fresh out of the oven in a mini skillet topped with whatever delectable goodness […]

Foodie Friday: Travel Edition!

We needed a break from the Okinawa heat and Queenstown, New Zealand was just what the doctor ordered! Snowboarding, skiing, horseback riding, gravity carting, boating, and walking miles everyday in the crisp mountain air certainly worked up our appetites. We tried many tasty eateries, from crepe carts to Michelin star hideaways, but this little place […]

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 […]
