Aloha Breakfast Buffet: Cooking for a Cause at Duke’s
By Erica Garza
On Sunday, February 13th, Duke’s Beach House offered diners a $10 feast in conjunction with the Aluminum Man Biathlon Series. The Aloha Breakfast Buffet supported TS Restaurant’s Legacy of Aloha program, created in 2007 to help fund community organizations of Maui that strive to keep local kids safe, protect the environment, and preserve the water sports that islanders love.
Open to the public, The Aloha Breakfast Buffet included all-you-can-eat sweetbread French toast, buttermilk pancakes, scrambled eggs, link sausage, applewood smoked bacon, Portuguese sausage, jasmine rice and fresh fruit from 9am to 11am.
For those who participated in the “The Valentine’s Biathlon,” a ½-mile swim and 3 ½-mile Boardwalk run at Airport Beach that took place at 8am, the $10 breakfast was a hearty reward.
The newest TS restaurant on the island, Duke’s Beach House sources ingredients from over twenty local farms on Maui and offers patrons an open-air setting on the beach at Honua Kai. The restaurant features happy hour entertainment nightly and tempting kama’aina specials, including a complimentary half papaya at breakfast and a choice between a Hula Pie dessert and panko crusted calamari pupu for lunch or dinner.
