We were surprised how good the coffee and our sandwiches were....and it was Easter so we were impressed the cases of food and treats were fully stocked and fresh.The staff were totally friendly. We were killing time so we noticed the stream of locals and tourists who were greeted/recognized (it's always nice when the staff remember you).

While in Kauai I decidedly sought-out "custom" java tastings in the afternoon and evening hours, but started every day with the simple coffee-of-the-day selection offere by CB&TL. The ladies there are flawless and fun! Just a wonderful place to breeze-in for a friendly Hello (Aloha) after sunrise and then take-away a perfect cupa'joe. It's perhaps the friendliest coffee shop crew... More

"I needed a coffee" and we found this little cafe that was perfect. The staff friendly and happy. The coffee and treats were delicious which we could enjoy sitting outside.

The drink offerings were good and prices, though high, were comparable to Starbuck's in Hawaii. Baked goods so-so. Scone was dry and not the greatest. Good atmosphere. Rewards card available as well.

My mom really likes this place so we gave it a try. I ordered a chai latte and found it to be far too sweet (highly recommend Imua coffee - a hidden gem worth looking for). The pastries were lackluster. The staff was nice.

Not much parking and not so easy, not many tables inside: They could optimize more; the coffee is good, if you are American, and if you want to eat a bunch of 'very' junk food you are in the perfect place! Like going to McDonald but with better and more choices of coffee and a different 'trend' of food...

So glad I could get my favorite coffees and blended drinks here like at home. Loved the dark chocolate blended!

My wife and I recently discovered a great place for a cup of coffee in the Kapaa area. It's never as crowded or noisy as Starbucks. The prices are cheaper and they give you more for your buck. This morning, I tried the Steel Cut Oatmeal Bowl with fresh bananas, walnuts, raisins, and honey. It was the best bowl of... More

This was the way coffee is suppose to be. Nice and strong. Highly recommend there lattes and Americanos if you are a coffee connoisseur. I tried one of their fruit smoothies and they are just as good. However I would have like to had fresh fruit instead of juices. Refreshing to say the least.
