Hawai’i: Morning Glass Coffee + Café

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 6comments No tags Permalink 0

Good morning from Manoa! Tuesday breakfast at Morning Glass Coffee + Café with Noelle, Steph, Kelly, and Shann. Housemade sodas and cereal milk lattes on the menu…your pick Cocoa Crispies, Apple Jacks, Frosted Flakes, and Fruity Pebbles. This is the only place in Hawai’i that serves Stumptown Coffee…so hipster ;)

The pastry counter reminds me of Abraço in NYC. All we need is Olive Oil Cake to complete the picture. Sweet and savory options, think Spinach & Feta Fritattas, Banana Bread, Chocolate-Pecan and Strawberry Scones, Coffeecake and…

…even Condensed Milk Pound Cake. How decadent.

I went with the Cocoa Crispies Latte…

…everyone else tried the “Egg-A-Muffin” – Housemade English Muffin, Bacon, Poached Egg, and Tomato Jam. They also have breakfast burritos, brûléed oatmeal, and a full lunch sandwich menu. We’re totally coming back tomorrow.

Kelly asked for Cocoa Crispies Milk, served warm…a cereal milk steamer!

Okay…off to the beach/shopping now, hope everyone has a good day in paradise.

    YOu know Pichet Ong makes a condensed milk pound cake, too! It's actually quite easy! Now I want to run to the kitchen and start baking! :)

    Hi Kat! Yay! Morning Glass also has a second location inside R&D which serves just coffee (http://www.honolulumagazine.com/Honolulu-Magazine/December-2011/Creative-Coffee-Shop-R-D-Opens-in-Kakaako/) …but the Manoa location has more food options ;)Hi Kim! Oh yes!! I actually haven't tried that yet…will put on the 'to eat' list when I get back. Hope your pound cake came out well!! :)Hi Louise! Aw, thanks so much ^_^ I love being back home…wish I could visit more frequently :)

    Hi Alan! Oo know what you mean about them being a little too easy going about the cleanliness part. I didn't like how the cashier took my money then picked up a loaf slice with her hands to plate it. Small things like that make a big difference…
