One of the staple coffee shops found on Maui is Sip Me. The owners opened the first shop in Makawao, on Baldwin avenue. This was where the dreams of Laura Wentworth took off. Here you will find a bright open space in which both local residents and visitors come together to enjoy the delicious treats that this coffee shop has to offer. While it started out as a small place, the menu has now grown to include fresh pressed juices, teas, smoothies, and more. It’s a great place for both those who want to enjoy a healthy treat and those who want to splurge a little.
In addition to drinks, they have baked goods that range from quiches to cakes. You will find a mix of both sweet and savory for those who want the best of both worlds. And, while donuts and croissants may not work for everyone, Sip Me has been mindful about their customers dietary restrictions. This includes vegan and gluten free options. The smoothies are low in calories but high in flavor, so you’re guaranteed to not miss out on anything. The juices have become quite a hit as well. The combination of a healthy treat and a refreshing drink is quite popular amongst the population here.
A second and third Sip Me opened in the last year down in the bustling beach town of Paia. One is located on Baldwin Ave. and the other one is on Hana Highway tucked into the little boutique, Sea La Vie. For those who are looking for a more wholesome meal, the location in Kahului is now serving lunch items as well as the traditional grab-n-go snacks and treats. They are offering a farm-to-table option that includes paninis and salads. In addition to this, it also features a handy-dandy drive through option for those who are on-the-go or in a rush.
So, next time you are in Makawao, Paia, or Kahului, stop on by a Sip Me and support this growing local business. You’ll be glad you did
