“Great little coffee house!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We are staying within walking distance from this little café. We go in almost every morning for a latte and are never disappointed. Our kids love their frozen slushy POG drink as well. I tried the peaberry latte, which was interesting to try but not my favourite. Still it's nice to try different things. They have lots of coffee beans for sale as a great gift for people back home. Make sure to get a frequent coffee card if you are going to go more than once.

“Skip altogether”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

First, their claim is frozen mocha samples. I tried it, and it is sickningly sweet!! Second, when we were the the owner decided he needed to tell everyone that his coffee is the best, with a very know-it-all attitude. Shouting about peaberry beans and how it is impossible to buy the coffee at his prices ($14 package). Then he goes on about how expensive it is to have an independent biz on Maui - then went on to divulge his utility prices (3 or 4 times mainland average), he works 8-10 hrs in the shop then goes homes and puts labels on the packages for another 2-3 hours each night. Jeez, man, lighten up...we are on vacation, we are not here for charity or to hear your business woes. That's a bad owner.

Reviewed May 29, 2014

Had their frozen mocha drink which was the most wonderful frozen mocha I ever tasted. My husband doesn't normally like these types of drinks loved it also!! Owner very nice and their coffee is outstanding also. Bought some to take home of us and to give as gifts.

“Perfect place for your morning coffee : very good Hawaiian iced and hot coffee”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We walked by this place and out of curiosity we went in. We were offered a sample of iced kona coffee which was very refreshing and tasty.

There's a very large selection of blends, iced and hot coffees. You can ask for various kind of milk for your latte (regular, fat-free, almonds, soy, etc.).

We asked to try some local blend and the owners were very helpful.

We ordered one local blend americano coffee and an iced latte coffee with almond milk instead.

Both were very good : perfect place for your morning coffee!

“Fantastic Coffee Shop and Breakfast.”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Lava Java has great out door seating and atmosphere. The coffee was delicious with breakfast and on the go. The staff was friendly and service was quick but not rushed. A great place to people watch and see paddle boarders. They have fresh bakery treats, omelets and other traditional breakfast meals. They only have one restroom and waiting in line is a little awkward since it's in the kitchen area.
