Stopped here to look at the artwork. Some very nice prints that reflect island life. I bought one print and my two friends bought three more. The owner is so friendly and delightful--she offered us to use her rest room and also to print our boarding passes!

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.

This is a nice place to sit and relax and have some coffee, or hot chocolate, or Chai. They even make "cold brew" ... daily! Very helpful bunch, made good recommendations for where to walk around and sight see. And, it is part of an art gallery with some interesting stuff to view.

Stopped in for a cup a couple of times - the lattes were great, as was the local granola. Good selection of milks, made to order. Lots of friendly tips of places to go/things to see. Attached to an art gallery, which is nice to poke around in while you wait.

So, we popped over to Aloha n' Paradise for some caffeine and wifi. Candy was super friendly and ushered us in with a great... More

I live on Kauai do my best to stop here for a coffee or hot chocolate, every time I am heading up the mountain. It is the feature Waimea Town, that I know of. They also have great Kauai art on the walls, and a reading spot, if it's raining, or you need a little relaxation. Candy makes me Laugh!!!!

This was the perfect stop for a coffee break on our way to Waimea Canyon! Service was super sweet and friendly, and the iced macadamia nut latte was perfect! We recommend it!

The coffee bar is located behind the art studio and you're allowed to enjoy the art done by local artists while sipping on locally grown coffee.

Went in for my morning coffee and it was good. Just the right balance of strong and sweet. The woman behind the counter however was a bit harsh. She lectured about the coffee in a condescending tone and when my partner told her his order, she snapped with "I'm not ready!" And the experience unfortunately left us feeling like we... More
