Hello Trippies I visit this Starbucks when I come to Kauai. It never changes. They are always slow. Staff is always mediocre at best. The only reason I visit this Starbucks is location. If there was another location near hanalei or princeville I would surely go there. The one in Poipu is always good.

I normally love Starbucks and am always happy with my visits, but this one - on both of my visits - was out of peppermint for the peppermint mocha I was twice asked to order, and on the second visit they were out of Marshmallow Dream Bars. Both times led to disappointment. But I have to give the staff credit... More

Was within walking distance of our hotel so I was able to get my "chai fix" each morning. Baristas are fast and friendly.

Ok, so its Hawaii and we take things slow here. But this is ridiculous. Line is all the way out the door. 4 people working the counter. Takes 15+ minutes to make a drink. We have been here several times on vacation and this is the absolute slowest Starbucks I have ever been to anywhere. Good product. Way to slow.... More

The iced coffee is not the only thing that is cold as ice here! It is freezing. Not the nicest Starbucks I have seen but thanks for the wifi!

The drinks are standard Starbucks stuff. I really appreciated the employees. I went here almost every day of my vacation, and they were always upbeat and made my drinks exactly as ordered.

This store is located in the shopping center located directly across from the Waipouli Beach Resort. There is no drive-through, but there is ample free parking.

For you Mainlanders, I am a Dunkin Donuts guy. Needed and Ice coffee fix, only drink there Blond. They were out of it. The teenage staff was what you would expect from a teenage "restaurant" staff. Like I said needed a coffee fix would up with their regular ice coffee, too bitter for me.
