My friend who has been to Kauai many times, insisted that we eat here daily. However, what he had forgotten was that they close for the month of Feb. We had three blissful days to enjoy the cafe. It has a great atmosphere, surrounded by fun art and wonderful, friendly owners.

Try "In our time" for breakfast delicious. Also, this place made the very best granola breakfast with milk, yogurt, walnuts, fruit and honey. It was good, I've been replicating it for myself every morning since I returned.

I look forward to spending more leisurely morning in Kauai at Art Cafe on my next visit.

I prefer unsweetened brewed flavored coffee, which you can't seem to find on the island (other than buying it at a grocery store and making it yourself). So, just got a latte to go. Wish we could have had lunch or breakfast here because the place looked really cool. But at least tried the coffee which was very good.

What a find. The owners are food lovers and this shows in every detail. Food was perfection, coffee was devine, owners friendly and came to each table to have a word with customers. I didn't think that they could serve a bad meal if they tried. This is the kind of restaurant I am always looking for: fresh ingredients and food made with passion. The pastry chef/part owner is from Europe as is her husband and their combined skills including warm personalities make for a winning combinations.
We were on the island for over two weeks starting in late January. Unfortunately for us the owners return to Europe each February otherwise we would have returned many more times.

If you want fast fried food, mediocre coffee, food with punch {heavy with cilantro, hot chill peppers, steak…you get the picture) pass this one by.

Art Cafe Hemingway is a totally charming cafe that we were so glad to find. The coffee was the best I had in 4 days on Kauai. I had the Sun Also Rises breakfast, which was excellent. The service was fine; we didn't have to wait an inordinate length of time, and there was no confusion regarding our orders. Maybe the folks here took previous comments to heart. I would have had breakfast here every day of our stay if it had worked in our schedule.

We happened upon this place while driving to Popui. It is a charming atmosphere but as stated before, the waitstaff is slow and confused on orders. The coffee is fabulous and the croissants are delectable.
