This is a must visit on your trip to Kauai. Tucked away in Kapa'a, they have the best coffee, pastries and lunch we had on the Island. We found them with 3 days left and visited every day. Drink coffee or die!

This coffee shop couldn't have been more "Portlandia" unless they had liquor to put in the coffee. Just like a quick trip home for quality coffee and a pleasant crowd of suntanned hipsters. Great coffee, great service, comfy atmosphere.

There was no comparison between here and Java Kai in Kapaa. This is now Hanalei Coffee Roasters, not Java Kai. Java Kai in Kapaa has much better options for food, and the coffee was much better. Drive to Java Kai in Kapaa!

We had coffee and breakfast here frequently -- as you can imagine, coffee was incredible, and the breakfast was reasonable and yummy. Right on the main drag in Kapaa.

My husband was craving a sweet blended coffee when we were in Hanalei. I went in here to grab one for him. Inside was super crowded and hot, I could hardly breathe because there was no air circulation. I ordered a large coffee for $6.75...More
