Egghead Cafe Espresso Bar just opened in Kailua. It’s located in the same plaza as Cinnamon’s Restaurant. The focus is on espresso, so you won’t find the same pancake trios or eggs bennies as the old spot in Kakaako. But don’t worry, Egghead fans, they're opening a full-blown restaurant in July in Kalihi, where they’ll be serving breakfast.
What you can expect at Kailua is coffee (flat white, pour overs, lattes and more) made with the cafe’s brand-new espresso machine, along with housemade pastries, sandwiches and salads. New items include the egg salad toast ($7.25), roasted beet kale salad ($13) and watercress potato salad ($11.50). Egghead regulars will be happy to know that the turkey cranberry havarti, chicken pesto and other favorite sandwiches are on the menu here.
And baked goods like moist chocolate chip and strawberry and cream cheese scones ($3.75 each) are available every day.
