Very nice Starbucks with convenient parking, friendly service, and plenty of pastries. They even offered to heat my pumpkin scone, something that they won't dare do at my local Starbucks Oakland California. You looking for a Starbucks before you reach the Lihue airport this is your best bet. Of course there is a Starbucks at the airport, but you might... More

My wife loves a Starbucks latte and our resort had nothing close. This Starbucks is located in the Kukui Grove Mall in Lihue and is usually very busy. The drinks are great and the staff is friendly. The store is a medium size and seating is usually hard to find. Another great Starbucks store!

So I've been getting the same Chai tea for years and was adamantly against it when they tried to push out my Chai for the Oprah chai, which I didn't like at all. Anyway my husband went in and ordered the same one he does for me 3-4 times a week. First, it took forever, I actually texted him "never... More

Typical Starbucks flavors with many options to choose from. Drive through and in-store conveniences for all those coffee cravers!

Walked here every morning for coffee and a paper. After just a short time, the staff knew my order and had it ready for me! I received much aloha at this store.

I don't normally rate chains, but I just had to stop in and say that I am fairly certain this is the friendliest Starbucks on earth. I have been here 3 times this week and every time I am in awe at how the staff interacts with the customers and remembers the regulars names and orders. They even take the... More

This is a great place with some amazing and friendly employees! My husband and I collect the Starbucks mugs, and we always have to find a Starbucks when we travel. Very few Starbucks around the world have friendlier staff! Must be the island life.
