My BFF, Wen, needed a ride into town for an appointment early Wednesday morning, so I stopped into the Beach Bum Cafe for some coffee, which I had heard about from Rick.
I tried their Honey Typica which was grown on the North Shore of Oahu. I liked this. It was a medium dark roast with only a little acidity...$2.25 for an 8-ounce cup.
I also tried their peanut butter cheesecake...$3.85. This was a little hard, but delicious.
Then, since I had some time to kill, I walked around. There were many spots for wi-fi, so I sat around using it.
I then came upon a bagel shop called "This is it...too!" and decided I should actually have something for breakfast.
I tried the Rossi's omelet (hash browns, bacon, egg & cheese) on a bagel of your choice. I chose their whole wheat.
For some reason, many on the web, don't like this place for bagels, but I enjoyed this, every breakfast item rolled into one omelet and their bagel had cranberries here and there too....$4.50
Afterwards, I played tourist...loved the reflections on the buildings.
Have you seen the new "Hawaii Five-O"? This is where their "headquarters" is located, right across from the Iolani Palace...ooh and last time I was home, I spotted Daniel Dae Kim near Whole Foods in Kahala. (see, I still need that camera in my eye...)
All in all, despite a few drizzles it was a great day.
