First Review by myra975

Friendly and convenient, just not good food - Edit

We went early on a weekday so there was no wait. Staff was friendly and service was quick. Nice place to sit outdoors if it's not too hot, although the view is just the parking lot.

Unfortunately our food left a LOT to be desired. The banana pancakes were undercooked (bits of raw batter, and not just next to banana bits) and had the bitter, metallic flavor of too much baking powder. The tofu scramble was tiny and greasy.

The almond matcha latte was one of the worst coffee shop drinks I have ever been served. The matcha powder had not been fully blended so there were mouthfuls of plain almond milk, then pellets of undissolved tea. Yuck.

If you have other options (Ailove is not far away), take 'em. If you're in Kailua and just want to avoid Starbucks, this place might do.

Pros: convenient and friendly

Cons: food not very good.

Morning Brew Coffee House and Bistro - Kailua - Edit

Located in the Time Shopping Center, Morning Brew Coffee House and Bistro has some outside seating, inside seating, and an upstairs seating area. Parking is free in the shopping center, but I can see it being challenging to find a space on busy days (we visited on a weekday). The bistro has nice ambiance, great service, and tasty food. It has a relaxing atmosphere. Great assortment of locally grown coffee drinks and a nice selection of home brewed kombacha. They sometimes have vegan and/or gluten free dessert options, but there were none on our visit. We ordered the Vegan Quesadilla ($8.75) and the Veggie Burger ($9.25) - I was advised by the staff to order it without the sauce if I wanted the Veggie Burger to be vegan, so I did. The quesadilla was very flavorful with beans, fresh avocado, carrots, greens and came with fresh salsa. The Veggie Burger (made on Maui) was hearty with a yummy vegetable patty, fresh greens, cucumber, tomato, sprouts, and came with a side of chips. The staff was very accommodating and checked on us to make sure that everything was perfect (the gentleman even brought us out some more chips). I am looking forward to visiting again soon.

Pros: Free Parking, Flavorful Vegan Food, Friendly Staff
