This is a cool little place in Kappa that we enjoy going to, both in the morning as well as mid day when im jonesing for an iced coffee. I enjoy that they make a good tasting cold brew. I am particular about coffee. Im not a fan of starbucks where the espresso tastes burnt and their lattes cater to... More

My wife and I enjoyed coming here during our stay in Kauai. We were in Princeville and it is conveniently located off the main highway and a short walk off the beach walking/biking trails that runs along the coast. Great coffee, bagels, and smoothies. Also a little cheaper than you will find at some other breakfast places.

We visited this cute little food truck like coffee stand multiple times during our stay having a variety of drinks and goodies. If you're into smoothies you must get the Tropical smoothie. They have fresh baked goodies daily from muffins and breads full of flavor and moist deliciousness. They changed out their coffee consistently and offered the perfect variety for... More

Really good coffee and convenient on the way when you're on your way for a hike. Opens early and I appreciated their awareness of our environment - no almond milk due to the unsustainable way it is produced. Other non-diary options are available

This place is a food truck(van) in the parking lot, but they have the most aloha of any coffee place in this town. Lauren was so nice! (she also works at the hostel I stayed at, international that is, not the place across the street) They are also the only place I could find for 'bulletproof' coffee. That's butter and... More

I walked past and grabbed an iced chai - it was really good, but I love ginger. If you don't, it may not be your beverage of choice. Nice little outdoor seating as well.

I'm so happy we stopped here. I read about the coconut mocha so I tried that. I'm so glad I did! It was so good! The chocolate tasted so delicious and the coconut wasn't too strong. It was perfect. I would definitely recommend this place to any coffee lover.

Yes, I know everyone has the best coffee. I'll say that this place was really, really good and it is very much worth the stop, if you are near Kapa'a. Granola was really good. Bagels and scones were acceptable, but it is a coffee place first.

Funky little coffee truck in Kapa'a (east side of Kauai and the northern tip of Kapa'a). Came here with a few friends mid morning and I ordered the Kevlar coffee which featured two shots of espresso with butter and coconut oil for $5. One friend ordered cappuccino and another friend ordered ice coffee. The Kevlar was an outstanding cup of... More

This spot was highly recommended by a tour guide we met on our trip. We stopped by the food truck location right off the highway on our way back from that tour and we were glad we did! We were visiting from Portland, OR, where there are great local coffee places all over. As such, I didn't set really high... More
