BEST COFFEE SHOP
The best place to be seen sporting a double, half-caffe, three-pump, iced, white chocolate mocha with whip? MAUI TIME’s readers say they indulge at their friendly neighborhood coffee conglomerate—Starbucks. Here’s a thought: top that cup off with a warm, gooey chocolate croissant or orange-cranberry scone and you’ve got a one-hand-on-the-wheel breakfast that will turn heads! Or grab some unsweetened iced green tea and a low-fat lemon bar to go when you’re on your way to/from that yoga class you finally joined. Just don’t be in a hurry, because at peak hour it can take 20 minutes or more to get that cup of joe. Located galaxy-wide.
