Best coffee and scones

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... read 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!

Whatever drink of the day they make it's always really good. They make a lot of their own flavored syrups and don't seem to cut corners in quality. I'm not a major coffee snob but I do taste the quality of all the ingredients and it's a delightful treat to go there whenever I get the chance

This neat place moved down the street to a parking lot in Kapaa town. They are now in a converted bus with an added deck. I do not drink coffee, but they have tea and wonderful baked goods - this is all created by a mother and daughter team plus a few other helpers.

My wife and I popped in for espresso and a cap. We missed it initially (the sign is a street level, and we were looking for a brick and mortar place - It's like a food truck with a small covered deck that includes several tables w/chairs). My espresso was magnificent, my wife's cap was thicker than she prefers it,... More

I stopped in for coffee and muffin. I enjoyed the mocha, but thought it was a bit predictable. The muffin was good. Parking was inconvenient.

The best coffee & muffins (whoever makes the blueberry is amazing) Now in a truck without the sandwiches, I miss the old place and my pig in an apple tree.
