This is a real gem in Waikiki and while the line to order can be a little long, it's worth it for the delicious coffee and even better food. Great for breakfast!!!

We were searching for a breakfast spot and stumbled upon this gem. The food is super fresh and delicious. I had the bacon breakfast sandwich and the banana mocha. This is way better than a frappachino. The Kona coffee they use is amazing. Brewed perfectly. We went back 2 times. Be prepared to wait a little bit in line. The... More

One of the only two coffee shops where we found the coffee drinkable !! If you are a regular coffee drinker and come from Australia you will appreciate the coffee from this place!!! while you are there the acai are bowls are great!!

We were in Hawaii recently visiting from Australia and came across the most awesome little cafe which serves the most amazing acai bowl we have ever tasted ! Visited 3 times in 2 days & can't wait to go back to Hawaii again and get another bowl. The coffee there was amazing also! Best coffee we had in our 3... More

This review is only for the açai bowl. I got there around 8am on my way up to Diamond Head and thought I needed something healthy to get me going. There was a line, and with all of the Japanese tourists the line moves really slow. I got the açai bowl based on a recommendation from my cousin who fell... More

We were looking for some coffee until the Harley Davidson Store opened. Found this little gem right next door. There was a line, but then one of the workers asked if we were paying with cash and we were whisked to the register in the corner with no waiting. The Frozen Kona Mocha was amazing and the Acai bowl is... More

I went here for a quick breakfast with some family members. We were all excited to finally taste the acai bowls, frozen coffees, bagel sandwiches, and the croissants. The girl at the register who took our order seemed annoyed and 'over it'. Maybe she was irritated because it was quite crowded. She handed us a number card and buzzer. After... More

We were waiting in line, patiently, at the very busy smaller take out shop, when a very unfortunate incident occurred - my wife being pushed out of the way by a very impatient, rude, young female probably a local. The raised voice was bad enough but the physical shove to move my wife out of the way was too much.... More

This little spot seemed so commercial to me from the outside that we almost passed right by, but it is so busy that we had to stick our head in and see what the buzz was about. The acai bowls are to die for - my meat and potatoes loving husband is a convert. And the coffee is fantastic -... More

I prefer the smoothies, but everyone else have had the bowls, on repeat trips and they do taste amazing! If there is a line, it moves quickly and well worth the trip! I don't drink coffee so I can't comment on that, the healthy options are definitely worth the stop.
