  • We're Going to the Hukilau Lanai Restaurant in Kapaa on Kauai

    Destination: Kauai

    red and white wines at hukilau lanai restaurant in kapaa on kauaiSandra worked the bar at Hukilau Lanai restaurant like a pianist who intimately knows the keys of her musical instrument. She reached left for one bottle, while her right hand reached right for another. She stretched her arm above her head for a wine glass. She spun behind her, opened a refrigerator hidden below the cabinet and pulled out a bottle of white wine, tugging out its cork and filling the glass.

  • Wailana Coffee House

    Destination: Oahu

    wailana coffee house menuIn the Hawaii Five-0 scene, Steve McGarrett sat at a booth across from a new member of his 5-0 task force at the Waikiki diner, the Wailana Coffee House. Their verbal banter aside, McGarrett was really on a stake-out. Detectives Danny Williams and Chin Ho Kelly paced the sidewalk outside, on the corner of Ala Moana Boulevard and Ena Road, in contact with McGarrett by a wireless radio ear piece. I sit across from the booth at which McGarrett sat, long vacated by the special ops lieutenant commander, of course.

  • Passion Bakery and Cafe

    Destination: Kauai

    passion bakery signMy new favorite coffee shop is Passion Bakery & Cafe in Kinipopo Shopping Center, a two-block walk from Lae nani Resort on Kauai’s east side. But coffee isn’t the main ingredient here. Sure, there’s a blackboard of coffee offerings from lattes and cappuccinos, Americanos, espressos to plain-old drip. But the baked goods take center stage here. Starting with the aroma.
