Attempts to cool off on warm days can result in undesired aftermaths, such as brain freeze from sipping a shake too quickly or fog mouth from sipping a dry-ice cocktail. Savor cloud-free refreshment with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gelato, coffee, and cafe treats at Hula Swirl.
Hula Swirl’s self-serve, pay-by-weight style allows culinary artisans to craft their own delectable fusions of gelato, yogurt, and breakfast treats. Employ thick belgian Hula waffles as foundations for palatable towers of toppings, such as sorbetto with coconut insulation and vibrant fruits to attract low-flying silverware ($4+). Freshly churned Hawai-Italian gelato showcases local tropical flavors and ingredients ($5+), and lattes and cappuccinos inject body branches with warm shots of energy ($2). To celebrate the novelty of skewered food without relying on the standard party game of stringing bagels on a shower-curtain rod, opt for a savory waffle dog or sausage ($4–$6).
This family-owned cafe bolsters its bites with an environmentally sound conscience, utilizing CFL lighting and compostable paper products. The shop's free WiFi allows patrons to browse the web for treat-combination ideas, or to research side effects before attempting to topple coffee-drinking world records.
