Average food and longer wait

We had breakfast here and it was pretty average. It was priced well, but the portions were smaller. The shop had a pretty big line and the wait for our food reflected it. The service was good though.

Inexpensive option for a good breakfast in the area. Limited menu, ate everything on it at least once. Scones were as good as I've ever had. Bagel sandwich was solid. Eggs benny was a bit over poached. Acai bowls were very good. Ladies that work there were always friendly. I appreciated the vibe!

What kind of coffee shop in Hawaii doesn't serve coffee grown on the islands? The name is Lei Pettite, so you would they would support local coffee growers like most other shops and restaurants.

We had the worst experience at this coffee shop. After we placed our orders, a coffee and 2 cappuccinos, we were sent to the sitting area to wait. 25 minutes later, we decided to check on our orders. We found out that they broke their milk frother. We were not pleased that none of the girls came out to tell... More

We thought they were the only place open for breakfast so we lined up with everyone else. After waiting on line for 20 minutes, we ordered. My partner ordered a cold breakfast, which he got immediately. And our drinks came up pretty quickly. Then my partner sat down at a table and I stood there to wait for my hot... More

Not many places to eat a good breakfast in Princeville, but we really enjoyed the breakfast selection at Lei Petite. Not fancy, but good.

We made the mistake of going here on a morning when we had a limited amount of time to eat. You order and then wait for food while coffee is being prepared. My bagel was pretty quick and tasted like a bagel. The wife's eggs benedict took so long we thought someone else's order was it and almost took the... More

They have a decent breakfast and coffee but don't be fooled by the photos on the tripadvisor listing. No time for latte art here. No to stay cups evens. Just ok food and decent coffee. A nice little spot but those looking for latte art and coffee conosieurship should set their expectations.

We were fortunate enough to find this little coffee shop on our first day in Princeville and ended up going every morning. The girl who makes the lattes is a true artist and very sweet. I asked if they still made the bear designs and was told by the person taking my order that they no longer offered it, so... More

The baristas here are busy! This place opens early - perfect for early morning flights or hikes or whatever you have to do. The line up starts before the place opens, and there seems to be a regular influx of locals. Therefore the baristas don't have a lot of time for chit chat. The acai bowl was the best I... More
