So, my wife and I just wanted a morning cup of coffee, but the gal at the counter decided that we should listen to her take on Southerners. Now, we're not from the south but my wife was wearing a "Bama" shirt and that alone gave this woman permission (at least in her mind) to talk about how they vote... More

I apologize. I didn't mean to mock. I thought we were being fun together, just on what I interpreted on your response to me talking about my friend from Alabama, sweet tea, her conservative politics, and more. I misinterpreted our interaction, not thinking I was mocking, but talking regional typicalities. I'm sorry that I offended you. Anni. More

I don't know if there are two locations but we went to the small mobile one that's in a parking lot. We had read (maybe old posting) about great breakfast options but this location didn't have a lot of options and they were out of some of them making their menu even smaller. Service was slow and a bit confusing... More

I am pretty picky about my coffee. I could of mimic'd an earlier post, it is like they took the thoughts from me verbatim. Starbucks is not for me either! The coffee at Small Town was one to remember, and return for again and again. For a little roadside stop it is surprisingly clean. I had a capp, and the... More

From an admitted coffee snob: this is excellent coffee! Despite the easy availability of good coffee beans in Hawaii, this doesn't necessarily translate into a good cup of coffee to drink. Small Town Coffee is an exception to this, the baristas put the care and attention needed into making great coffee and espresso drinks. Best I have had on Kauai... More

This is a cool little place in Kappa that we enjoy going to, both in the morning as well as mid day when im jonesing for an iced coffee. I enjoy that they make a good tasting cold brew. I am particular about coffee. Im not a fan of starbucks where the espresso tastes burnt and their lattes cater to... More

My wife and I enjoyed coming here during our stay in Kauai. We were in Princeville and it is conveniently located off the main highway and a short walk off the beach walking/biking trails that runs along the coast. Great coffee, bagels, and smoothies. Also a little cheaper than you will find at some other breakfast places.

We visited this cute little food truck like coffee stand multiple times during our stay having a variety of drinks and goodies. If you're into smoothies you must get the Tropical smoothie. They have fresh baked goodies daily from muffins and breads full of flavor and moist deliciousness. They changed out their coffee consistently and offered the perfect variety for... More

Really good coffee and convenient on the way when you're on your way for a hike. Opens early and I appreciated their awareness of our environment - no almond milk due to the unsustainable way it is produced. Other non-diary options are available
