Concierge.com's insider take:
This lovely French-style coffeehouse and wine bar would be more suited to New York, if it weren't for the tropical smoothies—ice cold, all-fruit creamy concoctions—that are perfect for a hot Maui afternoon. The organic espressos and killer gourmet cheese plates are a good change from the more typical island offerings, though most people come here for the wines—there are over 80 selections by the glass and an open tasting every Saturday. This cafe is a good place to get a snack (try the delicious salads and sandwiches) after 9 pm, and there's live music with no cover charge (Monday night's open mic can be hit or miss, try Tuesdays for Brazillian jazz). Be warned, this Market Street strip gets a little seedy at night.
