Best espresso place?

Help! I have a husband who needs a strong, good espresso coffee to get started in the mornings and 2 kids who love yummy pancakes. Is there a place in Poipu that serves good breakfast - pancakes, sandwiches...and strong espresso coffee??

I know my husband stopped by a place on our way to Waimea Canyon called Espresso n Paradise. I think he liked it ok.

http://livingfoodskauai.com/ Living Foods has great breakfasts including pancakes. I think they serve espresso but not positive. I know their coffee is very good! Tortilla Republic in the same center also has excellent breakfasts.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I think that Grinds in Ele'ele has espresso - I know they have many coffee drinks on their menu.

Espresso in Paradise is a fun little place - unfortunately they are always closed when I'm out in Waimea lately (early Sunday mornings), but I've had their coffee several times in the past and it was very good I thought.

I believe Little Fish Coffee in Hanapepe has espresso - and of course, the ubiquitous Starbucks (Lihu'e, Kapa'a, Po'ipu) also does as well.

Malama Pono,

Kalaheo Cafe (in Kalaheo) has excellent breakfasts and they also serve Kauai coffees, espressos, mochas, and cappuccinos.

Does Joe's on the Green serve espressos?

It looks like Living Foods also serves espresss:

"The cafe’ also roasts their own coffee on-site, with coffee beans from each of the Hawaiian islands, and serves a variety of espresso drinks"

There is also a Starbucks in the Poipu Shopping Village (no pancakes, though).

Tortilla Republic has espressos and double espressos!

My favorite breakfast place in Poipu is Joe's on The Green. The kids will love the pancakes there. It's just a couple of minutes down the same road from where there is a Starbuck's (in Poipu Shopping village). You could easily kill 2 birds with one stone.
