Maui Wowi Newark Reviews
Feb 03, 2008
OK, let’s not furrow those brows just yet; I know this following review is going to be a departure from the usual homey-neighborhood cafés that I normally gravitate to and praise. And as if we need anymore coffee café chains, right? Well, I believe this unknown gourmet chain deserves a little note worthy mention because of . . . the Mocha Macadamia Latte, off course!! A good friend introduced me to this coffee in the San Leandro area not too long ago, and since then, this type of product is gaining momentum and popularity.
Maui Wowi’s claim to fame is the “Hawaiian” coffees and smoothies served and surrounded by island attitude. If you’ve ever been to Hawai’i, the café’s themed atmosphere will both amuse and intrigue you. But aside from the décor, their Kona espressos simply create distinct flavorful notes that grab the taste buds and keep you coming back for more.
Unconventional coffee flavors include coconut and macadamia, and smoothies can consist of fresh strawberries, bananas, mangoes, kiwis, etc., all strongly associated with life in the islands. And Oh, have I mentioned, Ghirardelli chocloate used for their mochas?! Though their coffees are great, pastries and desserts leave a lot of room for improvement. Depending on the location you visit, food items will either be scarce or unappealing. However, all locations do offer packaged Hawaiian cookies, popcorns, Kona coffees, etc for purchase.
Small latte - $3.80
Small coffee - $1.55
Small smoothie - $3.20
