Unexpected

I was in a rush and yet wow such a small establishment made such a good quality mocha latte! What's more the signs are unique and very artistic. There is a bike rack and it all goes to show that one does not need a lot to accomplish total customer satisfaction!

We searched high and low for GOOD COFFEE when visiting Kauai in 2010. Small Town Coffee is heaven in a cup. They even serve bulletproof coffee! If you are a coffee snob, look no further.

We had time to kill before Coconut Criusers opened. We ordered lattes from a really friendly woman. They were stellar.

Well after 7 days on Maui and 8 on Kauai, finally found an awesome java shop that can hold a candle to Lamplighter back home! There are no books here fyi, and its a mobile deal with a cute Lil deck. Mahalo.

Coffee was excellent -- tasty and hot. But the blueberry muffin was the best! Friendly barristas and low-key atmosphere.

Came here after watching the sunrise on the beach. It's just what I needed. My wife was delighted they had gluten free pastry items. That it is in a little food truck-like location made it better to me. There a dozen or so seats that made it nice to enjoy the morning.

Small Town Coffee has moved up the road and is now in a parking lot operating out of a wagon.

They make one of the best local cafe lattes, with a choice of organic milks - hemp, soy almond or cow.... More
