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

This place is a food truck(van) in the parking lot, but they have the most aloha of any coffee place in this town. Lauren was so nice! (she also works at the hostel I stayed at, international that is, not the place across the street) They are also the only place I could find for 'bulletproof' coffee. That's butter and... More

I walked past and grabbed an iced chai - it was really good, but I love ginger. If you don't, it may not be your beverage of choice. Nice little outdoor seating as well.

I'm so happy we stopped here. I read about the coconut mocha so I tried that. I'm so glad I did! It was so good! The chocolate tasted so delicious and the coconut wasn't too strong. It was perfect. I would definitely recommend this place to any coffee lover.

Yes, I know everyone has the best coffee. I'll say that this place was really, really good and it is very much worth the stop, if you are near Kapa'a. Granola was really good. Bagels and scones were acceptable, but it is a coffee place first.

Funky little coffee truck in Kapa'a (east side of Kauai and the northern tip of Kapa'a). Came here with a few friends mid morning and I ordered the Kevlar coffee which featured two shots of espresso with butter and coconut oil for $5. One friend ordered cappuccino and another friend ordered ice coffee. The Kevlar was an outstanding cup of... More

This spot was highly recommended by a tour guide we met on our trip. We stopped by the food truck location right off the highway on our way back from that tour and we were glad we did! We were visiting from Portland, OR, where there are great local coffee places all over. As such, I didn't set really high... More

Came into Princeville for a weekend wedding. We were grabbing a 'cup' to go from the 'bus location from the hwy. we were on our way out back to the Big Island, and ended up grabbing some GF-cinnamon apple banana bread(best ever!) and best mocha we've have ever had. Terrific counter with smiles, local flora and fauna:) we recommend.

Same great coffee and tea. Same fresh baked pastries. Same good humor and attention to detail. Same ice cold bevies. Same tables and chairs. Same plants. Same regular customers. Same you. But now, it's on wheels. Find us in the Kojima's parking lot in the red bus.
