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

Came into Princeville for a weekend wedding. We were grabbing a 'cup' to go from the 'bus location from the hwy. we were on our way out back to the Big Island, and ended up grabbing some GF-cinnamon apple banana bread(best ever!) and best mocha we've have ever had. Terrific counter with smiles, local flora and fauna:) we recommend.

Happy to say I stopped here for coffee. It's typically busy in the morning. I just got a double shot of espresso but it was yummy.

The service, quality of coffee, and excellent bakery selections make this a must-do if you're on the East Shore. Sit outside on their cute deck or take your food across the street and sit at the beach!

I didn't find this place until 2 days before I left and I am so disappointed that I hadn't found it earlier! Best coffee I've EVER had, and that is not a hyperbole! I ordered it to go and then drove up the road to the scenic outlook. Nothing better than awesome coffee and a view of the ocean! Definitely... More

Best coffee in Kaua'i and possibly Hawaii! If you're craving a decent coffee in Hawaii give these guys a go.

Ordered two coffees, one a half caf half decaf Americano and rhe other a regular coffee. Both were strong without being bitter. Husband had a cookie - which he said was ok, but not great. They have raw sugar and stevia as sweeteners. Sat out back in the shade and read the paper and listened to some locals gossip. Was... More
