Hawaii Adventure I – Island Vintage Coffee

Hey, guys! Welcome back to my vlog. Today, I’m super excited to share our recent Hawaiian escapade, where my husband and I decided to ditch the cold vibes of Boston for the sunny shores of Waikiki. Buckle up, because this trip was a rollercoaster of weather, vibes, and, of course, amazing food!

So, we touched down in Hawaii in the second week of December, the perfect time to escape the winter blues. But, hey, Hawaii has a mind of its own when it comes to weather. We got hit with some rain, but no worries – it’s all part of the adventure. Just a quick tip for future travelers: check the weather at your specific island spot before you pack those bags!

Now, let’s talk Island Vintage Coffee in Waikiki. This place had major buzz, and for a good reason. We stayed right in the center of Waikiki, and Island Vintage Coffee became our go-to spot. Spoiler alert: be prepared for a line. Even on a Wednesday at 9 a.m., we waited about 30 minutes. But, oh boy, was it worth it!

We started our Island Vintage Coffee journey with the Acai bowl and iced americano. The original Acai bowl stole our hearts – the blend of acai, granola, and honey was like a tropical party in our mouths. And can we talk about the beautiful flower on top? It was like a little piece of Hawaii magic.

But wait, we didn’t stop there. Three days straight, we kept coming back for more. Butter Garlic Shrimp, Shoyu Poke, LiliKo’I Moana Acai Bowl, Breakfast Plate, Latte – we tried it all. The Original Acai bowl remained my ride-or-die, but honestly, every dish was a flavor explosion. Shoutout to the Breakfast Plate’s sourdough and the Garlic Shrimp – they were game-changers.

And let’s not forget the vibe. Island Vintage Coffee didn’t just serve food; it was an experience. Every dish was a work of art, Instagram-worthy with its gorgeous decorations. It wasn’t just a meal; it was a feast for the senses.

Now, I’ve got some pro tips for you if you’re planning to hit up Island Vintage Coffee in Waikiki. The line can be intimidating, so here’s the hack: order online ahead and pick it up or head to the Island Vintage Wine Bar next door. The waitlist there is way shorter – 5 to 15 minutes – and you can still order anything from the coffee shop menu. Winning!

Our Hawaii trip was a dream, guys. I’m already missing the weather, the vibes, and, of course, the food. If you’re thinking of a winter escape, especially if you’re stuck in the East Coast cold, Hawaii is the place to be. Stay tuned for more Hawaii vlogs – I’ve got some exciting stuff coming your way. Thanks a bunch for hanging out with me today!
