“A hidden gem, best coffee we had on the island”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

We stumbled across this place entirely by accident on our way to diving in Haleiwa (Deep Ecology - see other reviews).

It opens nice and early and although the exterior is rather unassuming, it genuinely did do the best coffee of the entire stay on Oahu. More importantly for UK visitors... if does proper tea! With proper milk! My wife wept gently as she had her first proper tea in Hawaii :)

Anyway, there really isn't much more to say - their range is excellent, prices reasonable, staff are friendly... take time to stop here if you are looking for coffee anywhere on the north side of the island! Cakes were nice too.

Very, very good.

“Great coffee shop”
Reviewed March 16, 2011

This is our favorite place to have coffee on Oahu. The bakery is incredible. We also had chili today that was really good. I work for Caribou at home, and know coffee. The coffee at the Coffee Gallery is really good. We sit outside under the big tree. It is really quiet and gives you the feel of the North Shore. Fun to mingle with the locals. On the snowy days back home, we often think of the times at the Coffee Gallery. The staff is great.

I would just like to say after ready the comments about the Coffee Gallery I seriously has issue with the "OVERRATED" Review...it's pretty clear they don't know what good coffee is. If they want to head over to Starbucks good for them...better yet maybe they would even choose Dunkin Donuts over the Coffee Gallery as well...When it comes to great Local Hawaiian Coffee, which is some of the best in the world, when you have plenty of bad Arabic coffee from places like Dunkins and Starbucks you actually don't even know what good coffee even tastes like...it's true! Comments about how long it took to get a coffee and how shabby it was....wow, that is seriously just UNTRUE! Hawaii has a chillaxin lifestyle no ones in a rush, so what if it takes a few mins, just talk story with those around you as you wait...on top of that true local joints are all about those hidden gems and shacks....Yes, this is a little grass shack and it's awesome that way...Shabby? That comment is laughable.

For someone who actually Lives on Oahu and LOVES...LOVES Coffee...This is just not the best Coffee House on the North Shore but the BEST COFFEE on the entire Island of Oahu, hands down. There is just nothing more to say about that!
