Enjoyed delicious cappuccino and flat white at ARS, wished we could have stayed for breakfast as the small menu looked delicious (further evidenced by surrounding diners meals). Very impressed by the beautiful wooden coffee machine. Small amount of seating inside. Decent prices.

Best coffee by a mile in Honolulu. Fussy Australian coffee drinkers would love this. Great setup, very relaxed feel and a light bright seating area. Avocado on toast was yummy too. Worth the walk or drive.
