Today I went to Island Vintage Coffee in Waikiki. I was looking at the menu and could not decide what I wanted to eat because honestly everything looked good. They have so many yummy things on the menu. After much deliberation I decided on the Grilled Mushroom Burger.
Best decision- this burger was die-licious! They take Portobello mushrooms, tomato and red peppers and sauté them in a mild balsamic vinaigrette. Then they layer the mushroom mix with goat cheese bits, micro greens and red onions and top it with a garlic aioli. They put all of this on the freshest taro bun- it’s a work of art! The burger comes with a simple salad made up of mixed greens in light vinaigrette and garnished with roasted pistachio. I ate EVERYTHING! It was so good that I can’t wait to go back and have another.
If you’re planning a trip to Waikiki, definitely visit this coffee shop. It’s located in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center 2nd floor. It gets very crowded so if you have a tour that you’re gonna go on you may want to allow yourself an extra hour to get your order in and eat. They do take out too of course but the line to even put in your order can be pretty long. It’s well worth the wait though. They also have an organic store (right next to the café) and a shave ice stand on the ground level.
