They had kaanapali Italian roast for the espresso. The batista didn't seem to know much about it but another employee told me. But she made an excellent iced latte and iced Thai latte (with condensed milk and chocolate but she didn't have enough condensed milk so added a bit of ice cream at my suggestion). This coffee tastes bold and... More

Nothing else to really say. The staff was really friendly, warm and helpful. The coffee tasted fantastic and the price was reasonable.

They know their coffee and sell an assortment of Hawaiian grown coffee beens. Food includes sandwiches, bagels, pastries etc. But I recommend it for a good cup of coffee. The atmosphere is... More

What an enjoyable stop! I had a wonderful medium roast Hawaiian iced coffee. So delicious! This little jem is nested in a plaza, and unfortunately very hard to miss. I'm glad I went looking for a great coffee shop other than the typical Starbucks.

Even on vacation, we had to have our iced coffee. Being from Seattle, we are surrounded by Starbucks and like to try new places. Points for local, individually owned shops like this. Great iced toddy!

I took my kids in for a quick breakfast since there aren't many choices in the morning. The ladies behind the counter were nice. We picked up a cheese pizza made on a flat bread and a chicken with cheese sandwich for my kids (which they liked). I picked up a coffee and croissant. Nothing special, I could pick up... More

I consider myself picky with my coffee and their Peaberry coffee is just the right mix of mellow and flavor. I've been back lots and would recommend it absolutely. Coffee is delicious!

Went there for an Americano and was totally diappointed in the strength and flavour. In my opinion this could have been very basic drip coffee.

The place has struggled to gain a following----and here's one very good reason why. After ordering and paying for a pastry and a coffee drink by credit card, I went outside and waited for the order. The pastry came, and when I asked about the coffee drink, the delivery person said, "Oh, I am just bringing your bagel.". Okay, so... More

We are terribly sorry for what you experienced at Java cafe. I would like to conduct a full review of our protocol to make sure this does not happen again. Normally you would receive the coffee and pastry you purchase at the register immediately from the baristas so this i highly unusual. If you would like to reach out to... More
