The Mocha Java Cafe is a landmark. Great food. Very friendly folks. Amazing coffee. Reasonable prices. Even visiting as a tourist (a local told me about it), one is treated like family. I love this place!

The service here is slow and the employees were not very friendly. I cannot recommend getting anything here. The coffee is standard but the prices are high.

Something for everyone! Reasonable prices in a pricey place. Vegan Choices which can be hard to find!

I've had countless snacks and coffee drinks from the Mocha Java location at Ward. The baristas and servers there have always been friendly, courteous and efficient. I especially enjoy some of their specialty coffee mixtures with the Milky Way getting top marks. Also, they have a variety of snacks, sandwiches and healthy options, too!

just love the vibe at this spot, the baristas and food prep staff are really laid back and friendly and always make my coffee how i like, used to be a bit less industrial, but it's an easy spot to grab coffee on your way out of the city

Not a five star restaurant or a true sit down breakfast place. It does have seating outside and within the pavilion. I thought that the lattes were fabulous and the eggs Benedict superb. For a quick breakfast before you go shopping in the Mall, hard to beat.

Breakfast. That's what you eat here. Lunch menu, forget it. Come back at breakfast or keep walking. The menu is amazing, all kinds of awesome omelets to choose from. Don't miss the eggs benedict, they are AWESOME. Don't be fooled by other reviews. One thing to remember in Hawaii, you are in Hawaii!!! Not pick your town California or France.... More

I had eggs benedict and coffee this morning. Although "gourmet coffee" is advertised, I found it average. The eggs and sauce were tasty, however, it seemed like they used burnt toast rather than English muffins. And the dish was ala carte--no sides included. Only a fork was provided, so it was difficult to eat the sauce.

I saw that this place had good veggie options (even though the reviews were quite old) and was staying nearby so went for lunch - the smoothies were good, the food slow & unexciting. In short, good to grab a smoothie from and take out, but don't venture here for the food & end up sitting in a strip mall... More
