We were in Hanapepe, after lunch hour, and hungry. This is a small place, easy to miss, and easy to assume they only do coffee. Their panini was super, the lox bagel sandwich was tasty & plentiful, and their smoothies tasted like more. We didn't have one, but the salads looked good,too.The ladies behind the counter were very helpful &... More

Dropped by here on the way to Waimea based on reviews. We ordered club sandwiches and iced tea/coffee. The food and drink was decent but nothing to rave about like other places. The customer service was non-existent.

This is a great place to visit but not a place to visit if you are in a hurry. They prepare everything fresh to order. I had the special panina with ham/etc and it was excellent.

No fruits or granola at 8:30 in the morning. If you want to have something like yogurt bowl or smoothie in the morning, try different place.

Aloha Michal- you know, it happens. Sometimes we run out of stuff and can't source it from vendors at the rate we would like. Sorry we left you high and dry. Hope the rest of your time on Kauai didn't leave you hangin'! More

This was a cute little coffee shop that was not too busy. We stopped in for a quick breakfast on our way up Waimea Canyon for a hike. This is well worth a stop if you are looking for a quick bite and a good cup of coffee.

My husband and I and some friends stopped here on our way to Waimea Canyon. The breakfast bagel was very good. I had a pineapple smoothie and it was very refreshing. A cute little shop with a variety of posters on the walls. A nice little stop before a day of sightseeing.

Just stopped in for a little coffee and dessert as we wander around town. The staff is friendly and it is a nice place to sit and watch people go by. Come in for a few minutes and enjoy the coffee and treats!

Take time to explore Hanapepe in Kauai, self-dubbed the 'biggest small town' in Kauai. Wander through the art galleries, and stop for a coffee and snack at Little Fish Coffee. They have an excellent selection of espresso products, including 'affogato' (espresso poured over ice cream), and a concoction with 4 espresso shots and sweetened condensed milk. If it weren't late... More

We had breakfast here, small quaint and relaxed coffee house with great food, friendly staff and amazing coffee. Large selection for breakfast for the person looking for a healthy breakfast. Poi Bowl was filling and flavorful. The breakfast bagel was delicious. I would highly recommend going there for breakfast or lunch.

You would think that the place would be awash with fish dishes, but that is not the case. The emphasis is on the coffee and for being in the USA, is pretty good.
