cool cat cafee
You readers have validated what I’ve known for eons. Well, okay, maybe it’s only been a year but that’s close enough. Cool Cat has awesome burgers. (The same goes for Jonny’s—and I still can’t solve the debate between these two). They’re not the fancy, $30 burgers with caviar they’re serving in New York. And they’re not the thin, questionable meat-pattied burger you got at the school lunch cafeteria. Cool Cat does it right, with just enough soft bun to cover a quarter pound of perfectly cooked and seasoned beef, crisp lettuce, slices of fresh tomato, onions, melted cheese of your choice and their secret sauce. Like pizza, burgers generally elicit some pretty strong opinions from eaters, so it’s nice to see most of us are on the same page here. At least until next year. 658 Front St., Lahaina, 667-0908.
