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...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
