Good coffee

Ordered two coffees, one a half caf half decaf Americano and rhe other a regular coffee. Both were strong without being bitter. Husband had a cookie - which he said was ok, but not great. They have raw sugar and stevia as sweeteners. Sat out back in the shade and read the paper and listened to some... read more

Don't miss to get a coffee at Small Town's when you are in Kapa'a. Best cappuccino, tasty bagels, great staff. We loved that place and went there so many times during our holidays in Kauai.

This is a busy little truck with seating front in the sun, and back in the shade. Chai lattes are good, service is friendly.

This is a bus/van in a parking lot by the side of the main road. We'd searched it out due to the TripAdvisor reviews, thinking it was something special. It's not. $20 for 2 muffins and 3 coffees is over priced. Nice muffins, nice coffee - but nothing better than Starbucks. I appreciate their environmental philosophy re almond milk. But... More

This little red van is one of many on the Northern end of Kapa'a, went to find it because of the rave reviews on TA. Clientele seemed to be mostly the organic hippie white local kind congregating at the back of the van seating area. Friendly staff. The latte was extremely weak even with three shots in it, all I...

We stopped by this "coffee bus" after Reading it's reviews on trip advisor and it definitely lived up to the hype! It has changed locations so didn't pull up on google maps, and says "permanently closed" however we found it's new location in the parking lot of "Kojima" store. We bought an iced coconut mocha and my husband said it... More

I'm not a coffee gourmet but I like this place. Outdoor seating is nice. My friend was excited because they offer their version of the bulletproof. I enjoyed people watching there.

Fortunately my favorite place in the world to get coffee is just down the road from where I live. Their organic, fair trade coffee is superb. I especially love the Ethiopian Peaberry, although it is seasonal. The baristas are friendly & make the best lattes. I buy their coffee beans so I can make delicious coffee at home too. The... More

My wife and I like very good coffee. We read the reviews of this small local coffee house and it didn't disappoint. Superb Java. They source the bean from a California roaster.

If you are from down-under and looking for a grunty flat white or latte as we are accustomed to, go to Small Town Coffee. They totally get it!
