One of the most wonderful activities you can get up to, whether you’re on vacation, running errands, or just having a fun day out, is the coffee run!
And Kaua’i is not lacking when it comes to small, mom-and-pop coffee shops that make some of the best brews you’ll ever try.
Here are just a few of the greats:
Imua Coffee Roasters, Kapa'a
If you demand exceptional quality in your coffee, look no further than the experts at Imua.
Art Cafe Hemingway, Kapa’a
Next to the Moikeha canal in Kapa'a, is a historic two-story building, run by a friendly German couple.
Aloha N Paradise, Waimea Town
Located one street off the highway in Waimea town, away from the hustle and bustle of the busier towns.
Ha Coffee Bar, Lihue
This spacious, stylish, and understated coffee bar is on the Nawiliwili side of Lihue. It’s a great place to get some online work done, read the paper, or meet with friends.
Java Kai, Kapa'a
Located in a solid little art deco building on the main drag in Kapa'a, Java Kai is the cool place to go for the “with it” in Kapa'a.
Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Co., Kalaheo
Located on the main drag in Kalaheo, this is the kind of place you would feel comfortable taking your mom or a large family.
Kilauea Bakery, Kilauea
On the way to the lighthouse in the Kong Lung Market Center, you can stop here for a coffee and scone, or on the way back for a calzone or pizza.
Koloa Mill Ice Cream and Coffee, Old Koloa town
Right in the heart of Koloa town, is a nice fun ice cream, coffee, and sweets shop experienced in many holiday resort towns.
Lapperts Ice Cream & Coffee Island Locations
Founded on Kaua'i, Lapperts ice cream and coffee has multiple locations throughout Kaua'i, one on Maui and Honolulu.
Little Fish, Hanapepe Town
Worth taking the curve off the main highway into Hanapepe you’ll find a cool little coffee shop. The friendly staff seems like they just got out of the water from a good surf session.
BOTTOM LINE: Like most places these days, Kaua’i has plenty of amazing options for your morning cup of joe, evening cappuccino, or afternoon iced latte!
