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

Driving to Waimea canyon early in the morning, seemed like it was not many coffee shops were open but this one..We walked into the gallery, and first impression was are we in the right place, but the young lady assured we were and directed us to the coffee shop inside the gallery, behind the other door. Coffee was good, pastries... More

This little spot in Waimea is a reminder that small, local and eccentric is still alive and thriving. And a great "customized" coffee... made just the way you like... the amount of coffee, milk, chocolate, temperature... try getting THAT at Starbucks. And, we had a freshly heated fudge brownie all the while sipping on the porch overlooking the quiet Capt.... More

We got into Aloha-n- Paradise pretty much by accident. My husband is an espresso lover, so we decided to check it out. The coffee shop looks a little shabby from outside, however we've got excellent coffee and chai tea. The owner/server was extremely nice, we had a lovely conversation, definitely it was a highlight of our day. Art gallery was... More

One lady made a great coffee, the other not so much. I'm a coffee snob and hard to please but in the absence of anything else it is perfectly drinkable. The lady with the white hair was a true character and I felt like I got a show with my coffee.

We randomly found this place while stopping at the bank and am so glad we did. The most friendly, kindess lady there started off my order with the question "hot or cold coffee". 10 questions later, the most amazing coffee was created. Tried to go back twice but she was closed on sundays and after 12:00... :( thanks again for... More

I've visited this gallery/cafe/internet hotspot several (7-8+) times during my 3 month stay in Waimea. They have a few cheap food options available and although I haven't tasted it, the coffee certainly smells good! On weekends, the service has always been friendly and cheerful, and I get charged $2 for wifi access on my own laptop. On weekdays however, the... More

I was in need of a good coffee and wasn't sure I was going to get one in this little town. Don't be put off by the looks of this shop from outside as the iced coffee was amazing....so smooth. The service was exceptional.
