Hawaii can no longer claim sole proprietor-ship for Morning Glass Coffee + Cafe. Now one can also get Hawaiian coffee in Osaka and it is different taste so give it a try if you have not tried. Drip coffee and expresso - both taste different - from my POV -sweeter and smoother -- worth the extra 20%. Also try their... More

I scheduled a lunch date there for 8/22/2016 with a retired friend of mine. I came early to enjoy coffee and claim some seating space. The coffee (decaf) was excellent (takes about 7 minutes to brew). There is no discount for refill; refills are painstakingly prepared just the same as an original cup (I did buy a refill and enjoyed... More

Granted, we were staying in the Manoa Valley so this is pretty much a neighborhood place for us, but it was clearly a neighborhood place for the neighborhood. FANTASTIC food and coffee. We arrived at 9:55 on a Saturday morning and were instantly seated at one of the 8 tables. By 10:05, there was a line of 8 tables waiting... More

Great coffee, a little pricey, but it's Hawai'i. Didn't try the food, but what I saw on the other tables looked delicious. I had the small hawaiian coffee and it set me back $4.71 when I'm used to about $2.50 average at most other 'chains' around town. But, it is local grown and was absolutely perfect for my taste in...

I am a huge fan of this place but you will never see me there on week ends! During the week, the place is mostly filled with professionals/university crowd with the occasional tourists... They offer a great egg muffin sandwich as well as scones and other breakfast items. Their baristas are great and they have a great selection of coffees.... More

This is a great stop for breakfast in Manoa. The dining area is very small and the table list is already filling up before opening. The egg dishes are made to order and there is quite a variety. They also offer some intriguing pancake dishes, such as mac and cheese as well as cheeseburger. They also have a lunch menu.... More

After eating in and around the heavily touristed areas of Southern Oahu (Waikiki), Morning Glass Coffee was a welcome alternative. The baked eggs were just delicious, the coffee was great and the service was excellent. Lots of local customers here....and no wonder. The vista isn't great...looking onto a carpark and then a busy road. There was a line up and... More

Good selection of roasts for pour overs, great baked goods, only downside is that it can get busy at times, but that is the way many of the great coffee shops are.

A friend and I stopped in after visiting the arboretum nearby. We arrived around noon. The place is very cute, open, with a patio out front (just a view of the parking lot) and some indoor seating. The drink menu has lots of options: coffee, lattes, teas, homemade sodas, etc. The food menu is more limited, but plenty of fresh... More
