Things I’m Loving Now

First up, da best lemonade, ever…

Things Lemonade

Wow Wow Lemonade

Wow Wow Lemonade makes ono hand pressed lemonade, puts it in a mason jar and serves it up from a hip hut outside Hawaiian Island Surf & Sport (corner of Dairy Road and Hana Highway). They favor local ingredients and have an extensive menu of refreshing liquid concoctions. Lilikoi, ginger, coconut water, limeade, guava…yum. The only thing you won’t like is how freaking hard it is to choose. I also couldn’t fit the mason jar in my CRV beverage holder but it was a small price to pay because that sucker lasted me all day.

Things Cafe Carmen

Cafe Carmen

One day I texted a fellow Maui SMUGerErik Blair, and asked for a good place to write and get a good meal. He turned me on to Cafe Carmen at the Tech Park. Aiii, da coffee is so good, it’s heaven in a giant cup. Dad and I like to go out for father daughter brekkie on the occasional Sunday and Carmen is one of our new favorite spots. I’m addicted to the salted caramel latte (pictured) and dad prefers his American style (made with Maui Coffee Roasters beans). The interior is also fantastic, very Brooklyn meets Maui, with a ton of great ideas for upcycling and DIY art play.

What are your favorite Maui spots to grab some grindz or a yummy brew?

Eat Me…Orange Leaf

I do love my fro yo…

Orange Leaf Dot

The minute I walked into Orange Leaf I knew I was in a happy place.  The tangerine and lime color scheme with a futuristic Jetson vibe made me smile. Self-serve fro yo and toppings is the perfect snack for a hot Hawaii afternoon.  I had a pomegranate mixed with natural, topped with peanut butter cup chunks (tart mixed with sweet is the way I fro yo).  The yogurt at Orange Leaf is so creamy and smooth, it’s hard to believe it’s made with fat free milk.

What’s your favorite place to indulge in fro yo?

Orange Leaf is located at 270 Dairy Road (between Maui Hair and Body and Starbucks).
