Eggs ‘n Things has hatched a new Eggs ‘n Things Cafe and Hua Market retail store located at its 343 Saratoga Road flagship eatery.

The cafe can be found downstairs in the busy Waikiki restaurant and serves acai fruit smoothies and bowls, espresso smoothies, fruit juices, iced tea, espresso and top-quality coffee. Coffee choices include the Drip Brewed Waialua House Blend, as well as a variety of premium hand-dripped and cloth-filtered coffee in mild or strong.

According to supervisor Yasumitsu Otsuka, who has about 20 years of experience in the coffee business, the cloth drip (versus paper) gives the coffee more flavor. There also is a special Water Drip Iced Kona Blend that takes eight hours to make, and only 30 servings available daily. The espresso — Cafe Latte, Cafe Mocha, Soy Latte, Cappuccino or Americano, can be made with or without sugar.

And the acai has a unique blend, such as the Diamond Head Eruption, which consists of acai, strawberry, banana, protein, yogurt and guava.

Customers dining at the restaurant also can order from the cafe menu. Known for its irresistible pancakes, omelets and crepes, Eggs ‘n Things has been a favorite of locals and visitors for the past 38 years.

Its famous Buttermilk Pancake Mix ($6) and tasty syrups ($6) have been popular take-home items, and continue to be offered at its new Hua Market retail store next door. Also available are the Waialua Coffee Blend ($7) which is the same coffee that is served in the restaurant, and a great assortment of souvenirs and logo merchandise, such as T-shirts, coffee mugs, aprons, tote bags, place mats, a rice paddle and bookmarks. The store also sells products from other local businesses such as Hawaiian Rainbow Bees honey, and Kahuku Farms lilikoi butter, lilikoi jelly and pineapple, papaya jam.

An Eggs ‘n Things Waikiki Beach Eggspress opened last December, and a third Eggs ‘n Things location is expected to open on Piikoi Street near Ala Moana in October.
