Someone told us they had ice cream here so we went by and got some. There weren't tons of flavor choices but it was tasty ice cream. We were there during off season and if they aren't busy they sometimes close early.More

Aloha mscalifornia! Thank you for visiting us here in Lana'i. Sorry to hear about your disappointment on ice cream flavors/choices. As you probably notice when you were visiting us how hot and humid it was, and yes.....our ice cream selection has dwindled during that time...More

This coffee is good enough to refresh you and give you a bit of "lift me up". I was served with smile. That's all that matters.

Aloha Aventuryn! Glad you could stop in for a "lift me up" and to get freshen up as well. A true definition of the "ALOHA" spirit with a smile.....

We are staying at the Four Seasons (the Nespresso in the room is their best option- enough said about how bad the coffee options are at the resort). Stopped here while in town and ordered a quad medium latte - very tasty! Will be back...

The drink was fair. Not exceptional. Not horrible. The service was mediocre. It was the end of the day and they seemed more interested in leaving then helping. There aren’t a lot of places to get coffee. If there were I’d go there instead.

Quaint bistro with friendly service, great selection of drinks and great Americano. Cookies go well with coffee. I did not try any other food on a good menu.

What CAN'T I say ascot this shop? Best coffee hands down and personally even BETTER than those big coffee chain co. Delicious and rich flavors served up with a dash of humor and big smiles. Keep up the good work

This cute, little coffee shop is actually quite delicious! I got a small cafe mocha and while it took a good bit of time to make, it was worth it.

A great place for real coffee and a cosy gathering place in Lanai city. I went back several times during my stay on the island.

We decided to visit this place after breakfast at the Blue Ginger Café as it is located just around the corner, away from Dole Park. I’m not a coffee aficionado, prefer a good cup of black java, but will drink a fancy coffee concoction now...More

Their coffee worked indeed. It was a decent cafe and coffee tasted good. The locals call it their "Starbucks of Lana's city". I love the outside sitting. I recommend to try this cafe if you are craving for caffeine.
