Kiwis like the flat white style of coffee, and they nailed it in this boutique coffee house. Don't let my description put you off, as it's not pretentious at all, they genuinely care about the food and coffee which they get right. The sandwiches were very good indeed, thanks so much.

Small with a local vibe and wonderful food. Great staff and a comfortable, casual atmosphere. This had the feeling of a local gem.

Hawaii can no longer claim sole proprietor-ship for Morning Glass Coffee + Cafe. Now one can also get Hawaiian coffee in Osaka and it is different taste so give it a try if you have not tried. Drip coffee and expresso - both taste different - from my POV -sweeter and smoother -- worth the extra 20%. Also try their... More

I scheduled a lunch date there for 8/22/2016 with a retired friend of mine. I came early to enjoy coffee and claim some seating space. The coffee (decaf) was excellent (takes about 7 minutes to brew). There is no discount for refill; refills are painstakingly prepared just the same as an original cup (I did buy a refill and enjoyed... More

Granted, we were staying in the Manoa Valley so this is pretty much a neighborhood place for us, but it was clearly a neighborhood place for the neighborhood. FANTASTIC food and coffee. We arrived at 9:55 on a Saturday morning and were instantly seated at one of the 8 tables. By 10:05, there was a line of 8 tables waiting... More

Great coffee, a little pricey, but it's Hawai'i. Didn't try the food, but what I saw on the other tables looked delicious. I had the small hawaiian coffee and it set me back $4.71 when I'm used to about $2.50 average at most other 'chains' around town. But, it is local grown and was absolutely perfect for my taste in...

I am a huge fan of this place but you will never see me there on week ends! During the week, the place is mostly filled with professionals/university crowd with the occasional tourists... They offer a great egg muffin sandwich as well as scones and other breakfast items. Their baristas are great and they have a great selection of coffees.... More

This is a great stop for breakfast in Manoa. The dining area is very small and the table list is already filling up before opening. The egg dishes are made to order and there is quite a variety. They also offer some intriguing pancake dishes, such as mac and cheese as well as cheeseburger. They also have a lunch menu.... More
