Overview

Right next to the Post Office in the town of Waimea on the island of Kauai. Our building has a salmon colored exterior and inside you will find an art gallery (all local artists). Further back you will find the coffee and espresso bar, serving up the best on the island! We also have a washroom for your convenience.

You must stop to refresh here before Waimea Canyon. Make your last coffee your best ever. Made with mindfulness, this is the tastiest blend, brewed to perfection with great cakes.

The coffee bar is behind the art gallery (although it does have its own, often-locked, entrance set back from the sidewalk). Their coffee blend is particularly good but it is the wisdom and sincerity of the owner that make this place a must. Don't come...More

It's not a big place, but it has the best coffee we've had on the island. Candy, the proprietor, uses a special blend of beans to make her hand-crafted drinks. The espresso bar is attached to an art gallery featuring the work of local artists...More

Very comfortable welcoming roomy internet coffee hangout! Was so nice to pop in there, relax and work. We accomplished a lot:) The owner is friendly I love the smart funny quotes in the bathroom. Please note it closes a noon for lunch break.
