Morning Glass Coffee will have a satellite home in Kakaako on Aug. 11, opening day for Morning Glass Coffee + Pastry Bar at Fishcake, the contemporary home furnishings store and art gallery located at 307C Kamani St.

The 10-by-10 square-foot space, designed by Maura Fujihira, co-owner and lead interior designer at Fishcake, will serve primarily as a grab-and-go stop, showcasing handcrafted sandwiches and a handful of fresh pastries exclusive to this location, plus local and Stumptown coffees that put the original Manoa location on the map when owner Eric Rose first landed from Oregon.

The creative/work/share space is also home to BoxJelly, whose founder Rachung Fujihira said, “Life isn’t compartmentalized, so this way people can get their coffee, do some work; it creates synergy.

Among Morning Glass + Pastry Bar drink specialties are Vietnamese-style iced coffees,  iced tea and sweet English breakfast tea with sugar and fresh mint.

“A coffee bar with this level of craftsmanship and attention to detail will really enhance the coworking experience for our members and visitors.”
