This cafe was also voted “Best Matcha Dessert” in 2017 by Honolulu Magazine!
If you want a dessert as delicious as it is luxurious, then you’ll want to try Matcha Cafe Maiko. Their Golden “Shogun” Soft Serve is a lavish and picture perfect treat you’ll be craving as the weather starts to heat up. This dessert features a swirl of creamy soft serve in your favorite flavor–try their matcha or Ube–inside a freshly-made waffle cone. The real fun starts when they add the real and edible 24k gold “leaf” that tops each cone.
This Japanese cafe originated all the way from the Hawaiian island of Honolulu and has branched out internationally since! Now, Matcha Cafe Maiko is based in cities like the American cities, San Francisco, Houston, Charlotte Macau and Asian cities of Macau, China, and Bangkok, Thailand!
This Instagrammable dessert is as tasty as it is lush. Their matcha is premium quality and comes straight from Uji, Japan, a southern, part of Kyoto. Matcha Cafe Maiko specializes in their matcha, but they also offer hojicha, a spicier tea that they prepare in their desserts and drinks.
This cafe doesn’t just serve their golden-tipped soft serves, but they’ve also got a huge selection of creamy milk teas to choose from. Their dessert selection, like their Brick Toast or their massive Shaved Ice, pays tribute to their Japanese origins and roots in Honolulu.
So go ahead and indulge yourself with this 24k gold dessert. They’re open Monday through Thursday from 11:30am to 8:15pm and until 9:15pm Friday and Saturday. Sundays they’re open 12:00pm to 7:45pm.
