6 stars would not be enough to express my respect and admiration for this establishment. This is the real deal: food, drink, and public space infused with creativity and consciousness.

As a serious Kombucha fan visiting Maui from my home in NY, I knew I had to try this pace the second I heard about it. It sounded very good, but I couldn't have imagined how good it would be.

My wife and I came in for our first visit, sat down at the bar, and the bartender poured us each 3 shot-glass tastes of the 3 kombucha flavors of the day. One was ginger-turmeric! OMG. My wife, a bit apologetically, remarked, "We are still kind of sandy from the beach." The bartender replied with a gentle smile, "We get a lot of that here." I almost fell off the bar stool laughing. And it only got better from there. We've been back almost every day of our 2 weeks on Maui.

The "booch" is on tap - fresh, cold, and delicious. New flavors appear each day, often with creative names almost as interesting as the beverage itself. There is a cooked soup of the day, and a variety of other fare, always fresh, both savory and sweet. Their healthy vegan selections, mostly raw, will delight your palate and treat your body with respect. Everyone should have one of their "hot shots" - a true original. I call it "Third Red Eye."

But MK is more than food and drink. It's truly an experience. A pub for the conscious. Every time we visit Maui Kombucha, we meet interesting people. Many of them feel instantly like old friends. One guy walked up to me and the first words out of his mouth were, "Guitar or bass?" I answered, "Bassoon," and the conversation between two musicians took off from there. If no one else happens to be in the bar, just have a good old fashioned talk with the bartender. I've learned more from one of their regular bartenders each time I've stopped in.

Perhaps MK is not for everybody, though right now I can't imagine why not. If the concept appeals to you, don't hesitate. If you are simply open to the possibility, don't hesitate. If you think you don't like kombucha, you might want to give it one more try with their take on it. That's everybody, right?

This would be a better world if Maui Kombuchas were as plentiful as Starbucks.
