This is where you're gonna get the best espresso. Candy is gonna make it how you like it + she is going to tell you all the best things you need to know about the island. She gave us tricks in a way that made us feel very comfortable to ask questions and we came back to her when we... read more

We were looking for a place to have breakfast with my wife and fortunately we went to Aloha-n-Paradise which is an art gallery coupled with a small café. The owner has italian machine and island coffee which makes your breakfast a wonderfull time. Besides, she cooks some brownies and muffins which are terrific. So if you want a good breakfast...

Stopped here on the way to Waimea Canyon -- needed a little caffeine to prepare for the drive. Sandy, the lady who made our coffee drinks, was a delight and offered a wealth of information about the area. She was worth the stop, even without the excellent coffee! The coffee here is all cold brewed - smooth and strong! Because... More

Being a local I have sampled all of the coffee places on island and this is one of my top two (rainbeau joes in Lihue being the other). Candy, the owner, is eclectic, vibrant and very entertaining to say the least. The coffee is organic & locally roasted. She has all the fixings cream, soy milk, rice milk etc. Both... More

We stopped to get iced coffee here while we were driving around exploring the island. The lady was super nice and told us about places to go and recommended beaches as well. The coffee was nice and there was an art gallery connected to the coffee shop which was pretty cool too.

Best coffee, best service and friendliest service and customers! Gotta stop here for coffee! If there's a line, it's well worth the wait. Just relax and talk to the other customers in the shop or walk around the gallery that's connected.

Being from one of the coffee capitals in the world (pacific northwest), I can be a harsh critic sometimes. However, when we entered this charming little art gallery with an espresso stand in the back, a woman said "this is the best barista on the island". And she seriously wasn't kidding. We got a couple iced vanilla lattes, and holy... More

Whoever wrote that the coffee was good needs to get their tastebuds checked! There is no drip coffee, only a cold americano from an overextracted stale coffee been. Oh, and that'll run you the ridiculous price of $4. GROSS!

We were given a recommendation by a local that this was the best coffee in town. It's made from locally grown and roasted beans and was very good indeed. You can take out the coffee in a Starbucks-style paper cup or sit and enjoy it in the exhibition of local art. The shop is in the centre of town, just... More
