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: Thanksgiving

I’m sticking to tradition today and filling up turkey sandwiches and left over sides dishes! Anyone else never seem to have any dessert leftover from Thanksgiving dinner?!?! No, just me….huh. I hope that you were able to give thanks with others yesterday – friends, family, or a combo of the two – and that 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 […]

Sometimes a loaded sandwich to-go is just what the doctor ordered for a hectic day. Thank goodness for Stickywich because “oh my sandwiches!” This place serves up outstanding creations every time. Every option on their menu is overflowing with flavorful, fresh ingredients. They offer three size options, all on their homemade bread, and offer seemingly […]

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: Slappy Slice

I’ve got a new one for you! This place has only been open for FOUR months. The owner hasn’t created a website for Facebook page for it yet so it was pure pizza fate that had us drive by one day. Both my husband and I went to college in Kings Point Long Island, New […]

Foodie Friday: Rachel Cafe

This welcoming bed and breakfast café is tucked away in Yomitan passed Torii Station. The couple who own Rachel café are originally from Hong Kong. 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: 808 Poke

I love a place that has a short menu and a long line! It means they are doing something outstanding. 808 is revered by locals and military community members alike as one of the best poke places on island. The welcoming spirit of Hawaii encapsulates you from the moment you step into the line with […]
