Satoshi was here for about 5 days and we got to play tourist a bit.
On Tuesday, we headed to Haleiwa, he really likes this area.
We checked out Ted's Bakery, which is known for their chocolate haupia pie.
I had heard that they also served plate lunches, so I figured we could pick something up then eat it at the beach.
Well, I didn't know that they only serve breakfast in the mornings (your website should note that somewhere!)
So, we ordered a Loco Moco for Satoshi...$9-something.
He said he enjoyed it.
Portuguese Sausage & Eggs for me...$8-something.
I liked this but thought these weren't really hash browns...
And their chocolate macadamia cream pie...$3-something.
I didn't quite read the label when I took it from their refrigerator, so that is why we missed the one with haupia.
Um, the food is decent here, BUT it took over 30 minutes for us to get our food!
If anything, I would go back for the pie, but probably for nothing else.
It was nice eating under the trees at Sunset Beach though...
After brunch, we headed back to Haleiwa town and spent some time at Coffee Gallery.
An iced French Roast (cold brewed) for me and a Haleiwa Blend for Satoshi...$3-something for both.
Free Wi-Fi was a plus...overcharging me for this coconut macaroon (which I didn't realize until afterwards...not cool!) was a double minus.
I purchased the macaroon for my mom because she loves coconut and she enjoyed this, I'd probably go back for the Wi-Fi and coffee though...
Then as we drove through Waialua, a sign caught my eye... "coconut peanut butter".
We checked it out and I found that North Shore Goodies also makes a chocolate coconut peanut butter.
Chocolate, peanuts and coconut, that's it. How can you go wrong with that?! No sugar added too...$7-something
We got to sample both and they were delicious, can't wait to slather this on a bagel or melt some to drizzle on vanilla ice cream!
Despite the minuses, the weather was wonderful, we contributed a little to the economy and Satoshi got to see some of his favorites sights in Hawaii, in essence it was a good day.
