For lunch today we decided to try the Cool Cat Cafe, voted the “Best Burger on Maui”. Ron and I ordered the Frings (1/2 basket of fries, 1/2 basket of onion rings). The onion rings were well fried and the onions very sweet. The fries had some sort of spice mix on it.
I ordered the Jailhouse Rock burger with sauteed mushrooms, Jack cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sweet Maui onions, and thousand island dressing on a French roll. Oh so delicious!
Ron ordered The Duke burger with bacon, melted cheese, and golden onion rings covered in their special BBQ sauce.
I enjoyed both burgers equally… hee hee…
Ron topped off his burger with a light Hawaiian beer.
Needless to say, we were both really stuffed so we went for a bit of shopping to walk off some of the calories. We went in search of two jewelry stores that I saw ads for in all the Maui magazines. The first one called Maui Divers advertised these pretty bamboo pendants. I think I liked them because they remind me of a flute but I didn’t like them as much when seeing them in person. We also visited another store called Glass Mango Designs which advertised these glass jellyfish pendants. At the store we found out they are made by an artist called Jeremy Sinkus. They were beautiful but the lady at the store quoted me the price of $225 for the most expensive to $180 for the least expensive. I was like “thanks, but I’ll have to think about it…”. I’m glad I didn’t buy as from an online store, they range from $60 to $90! Click here for one place that you can buy online.
We did some more walking around downtown Lahaina and before getting back to the car, saw this interesting sight, it looked like a recent ship wreck.
We almost couldn’t get out of our parking spot because they were having some sort of kids marathon on the street so it was closed off. Apparently it is the “Front Street Mile” for kids and adults. We got out of there just in time before they wouldn’t let us out.
Before heading back to our hotel, we stopped at the MauiGrown Coffee store. They have samplers which you can request before buying a cup of coffee. Ron and I weren’t too impressed by their coffee overall but maybe they’re still a young company. They do have a plantation with a free self-guided tour so hopefully we’ll have time to check it out as the store employee said there are cherries on the trees right now.
After we got back to the hotel, I fell right asleep.
I missed the beautiful sunset but Ron caught a great picture of it for me.
