A little bit of Hawaii in the Heights...a little bit – I just happened to see Maui Wowi one day as I was driving down Washington looking for someplace else. I caught it out of the corner of my eye and made a mental note to definitely come back and check it out. I've had Kona coffee beans brought to me from Hawaii and loved them, so I looked forward to trying it out. Unfortunately Maui Wowi is not the same as the Maui in Hawaii. Yes it is really nicely decorated and they offer free wi-fi, but I wasn't impressed by the coffee. It was definitely Kona beans but it seemed to be missing some of the flavor or richness that usually accompanies it. I was disappointed because I really wanted to like it.
Apart from that, though, the service was excellent. I may go back again to give it another try at some point, but I'm in no rush.
Awesome coffee and smoothies! – I must confess, if you are a fan of Starbucks or gas station coffee, this place will ruin you. I had not been to a Starbucks in the longest time as a result of the superior brew, amazing smoothies, friendly service, and great atmosphere (not to mention free wi-fi) that they serve up on a daily basis at Maui Wowi. I did have an unfortunate lapse in judgment today and at a meeting in Katy that was at a Starbucks, I ordered an iced coffee. After my taste-buds revolted, I promptly drove to Maui Wowi at an excessive velocity and speed to hopefully revive my now Starbucks tainted taste-buds through the careful application of what can only be described as "real coffee." Thank you Maui Wowi. You may have just saved my ability to taste anything for the rest of my life.
MAuiWowI – I stopped in for lunch today, and had a smoothie. It's was great. No long wait, great service, and a smoothie made with real bannanas. The music is a little bland, but who cares!
As I was leaving I even notice the drive thur! Hey, this place is a hidden treasure, enjoy!
BEST FREE WI-FI AND CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!! – I must start off by saying, MAUI WOWI saved my business during Hurricane IKE. I had no power and no internet to communicate with my customers. I went to starbucks and you had to pay/register for internet access $5 plus your drink ($13 out the door). Outrageous!!! Over rated and over priced. Here at MAUI WOWI people are super friendly like the island vibe and FREE internet. Just ask for the wep address and your coffee ($2) and your up and running. Also a loyaty card to get a free drink is a wonderful incentive. In conclusion I think this place paradise in the concrete jungle and is worth your time to try their beverages and FREEEEEE internet!
Great place - cool decor – Maui Wowi was not a name that I recognized until recently and when I had one during a conference at the convention center here in Houston I was hooked. Now they have a store right on my route - it offers the same great smoothies as the stand in the convention center but it also has coffee and a larger variety of products. The atmosphere is really nice fun and the smoothie and coffee products are top notch. This is a great place for a well made and attracively priced fruit drink or coffee.
BEST smoothies & coffees! – I enjoy one of these smoothies or coffees every day!
There are so many different flavors to choose from, and mix & match. My favorite is the Strawberry & Pina Colada. They also have a variety of coffees and espressos, all gourmet. The prices aren't too bad... the quality of the products is outstanding! I would rather pay a few cents more and have a delicious product than get a substandard product at a cheaper price. The protein and other boosters are also light and don't make the smoothie grainy.
I would definitely recommend this place! The atmosphere is great too! And the smoothies are healthy, most of them fat-free!
Love Hawaii - love Maui Wowi – I loved this place! I'm not a smoothie person, but my boyfriend is, and he has fallen in love with the Black Lava Beach flavor. I like the coffee Chill. Its similar to Starbucks Frappuchino, but I think the Chill is more flavorful. We love the music playing when we walk in; it makes you feel like you are on vacation! The Tiki glasses are so cute! I can see this place becoming a regular stop on the weekends... keep up the good work!
Overpriced! – This place has good smoothies, but they are way too overpriced. I also tried one of their coffees...very average quality and $4.50 for a SMALL! I liked the smoothies, but I don't think I'll be back until they lower their prices.
Hawaiian-themed franchise hits the Heights with tropical smoothies, coffee drinks and drive-thru service. – In Short
Expect a lively atmosphere at this sorbet-colored cafe where patrons linger over a cup or two at cozy tables inside and out while surf music plays in the background. The menu features all-natural fresh fruit smoothies with flavors from the islands. Options include fat burner, immunity enhancers and energy smoothies. If it's more of a jolt you're after, try a coffee (including Kona, Maui and other Hawaiian blends) or espresso drink. Free Wi-Fi is available.
