i was really looking forward to Java cafe based on all the positive reviews. First the good. Staff is very friendly and the coffee wasn't too bad. The coffee wasn't as rich as one usually expects on the islands, but again it wasn't bad. Had a flora pastry; it was terribly stale; one bite and it went into the trash.... More

This was a great place to grab a latte with a lovely leaf pattern and hang out. Fast free internet. The staff helped us out with some advice about local scuba and snorkeling operations and even drew us a map showing some of their favorite snorkeling beaches.

This morning my husband and I were looking for place to eat breakfast. We stopped by Kihei Caffe ( our favorite! ) but the line was out the door this time ( we know, that place is jamming every single day!) so I didn't really feel like waiting....so we decided to try Java Cafe for breakfast. I haven't been there... More

We were on our way to Wailea and felt like stopping for a cup of coffee on the way. We stopped at Java Cafe. It is a darling little coffee place with great pastries. The coffees are delicious weather hot or cold. Our party of 4 had some of both. What I really appreciated was the cold Toddy coffee. That... More

A favorite daily stop while visiting Kihei. They make a perfect European-style macchiato that is simply divine. The staff is thoughtful, efficient, and friendly. As an afternoon stop, a decadent ice cream, espresso and chocolate concoction is very tasty!! I would be remiss in not mentioning they also have an interesting menu for breakfast and lunch along with pastries. You... More

I only drink tea and my husband only drinks coffee. We went here twice we liked it so much. They were friendly and pleasant, even though I had to teach them how to make a tea miso. They didn't seem to mind and neither did I. It was a great place to hang out and talk. The food looked great... More

Local selection of coffees and some of the pastries are made locally. The people are friendly, attentive, and fast in a good way. If you bring your travel cup they will fill it for a reduced rate and if you order an ice coffee and sit and enjoy it you can get a refill for a dollar. They have outdoor... More

We came for our breakfast before we took off. The breakfast was good. Definitely didn't feel like something they pulled out from the fridge and defrost; it tasted like they put thoughts into their food. The coffee was good too. Kicked in just when I needed it. Staff was friendly as well; no one was pushy or impatient at all... More

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
