“Unique and Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We visited Caffe Coco twice in our two week stay on Kaua'i, first as a couple and the as a group of nine. We found the setting unique and charming and loved the casual atmosphere. The food was well prepared and portions more than satisfying. The charmoula platter was a standout as were the fresh spring rolls. We arrived early on our first night to enjoy the live music (Gabe & Flo) and stayed well past 9.00 PM to enjoy their closing numbers and have a quick chat with them. Mosquitos may be a problem but we simply brought Afterbite which was in the end not needed. A special compliment needs to be extended to Chris who always ensured we had plenty of water, that the food was good, that our table was cleared and did so with a big genuine smile. Well done Chris!

“Great food, great service, vegan and gluten free!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

If you have dietary restrictions like my wife (she's gluten intolerant), finding a safe place to eat on Kauai can be a challenge, so we were so happy to have found Caffe Coco!! The food and service were exceptional, and there were many options for celiacs and vegans! Highly recommended!!

“We love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We eat here every time we come back to Kauai and always hope that it is still open and thankfully it was. This was a 40th wedding anniversary dinner so we wanted to eat at our favorite restaurant on the island. This place is so funky and unique that it is really hard to describe. Outdoor seating with tables and chairs that none match each other, a gravel floor, pigs running loose in the neighboring yard and on some nights even live entertainment. The food is delicious and different, but I've never been disappointed here. This is really a dining experience that you should try.

“Veggie-friendly outdoor dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Delicious local flavors with fresh ingredients. They offer both meat and vegetarian options, such as jerk chicken or jerk tofu. They know how to season food, like their mashed purple sweet potatoes.

It is outdoor, and the bugs like it too, so they put out bug spray as they seat you. They have music most nights. If that is not your thing, just arrive early before that music starts up.

“Excellent Off-Beat Value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Great service and an excellent menu prepared with sensitivity and care. Everything can be made with respect for dietary intolerances and allergies.

Sadly, this tucked-away spot across from Kintaro is now open only at dinner hours. The proprietor, Hollan, is an erergetic and dedicated food afficionado.

Your menu questions and personal tastes are addressed with gracious sensitivity up-front. You'll be happily surprised from your first visit. The facilty is BYO if you wish to augment your meal.
