foodie wednesday

IMG_1448 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.

IMG_1449 I also tried their peanut butter cheesecake...$3.85. This was a little hard, but delicious.

Rossi's omelet @ bagels this is it too 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

DSC01526 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.

From coffee to cheesecake to bagel, sounds like a power breakfast to me (cranberries in a wholewheat bagel...yum). Okay so IF you spot and run into one of the 5-0 team members, you will get an autorgraph, right?

And the 23rd is your folks' 49th anniversary? So is MotH's. 50 years!

K and S said...

Take care.

Aha, I wanted to know more about that bagel with the omelette inside , did the bagel really have cranberries inside? Not sure I'd like that but it sounds pretty good otherwise

K and S said...

cranberries not your thing? you could choose a different bagel, they had several kinds, Foodhoe :)

Take care.
