“Drink coffee or DIE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

A funky, cool coffee shop with unique and delicious meals and drinks. Amazingly smooth yet bold Kona coffee. Gluten free and vegan muffins- we shared the Morning Glory. They also carry kombucha tea from Kauai Juice. Will definitely be back for breakfast or lunch! A T-shirt or coffee from Java Kai would also make a great souvenir.

“Good breakfast selection and good coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

This is a good place for coffee and a sit-down breakfast. They have quite a variety of breakfast items. The seating area can be crowded however, so sometimes hard to find a place to sit.

“Excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We tried the breakfast burrito and the waffles. Both were excellent. Staff is friendly. Coffee was good. They have regular light and dark roasts. They also have 100% kona coffee available at a substantial premium.

“Great coffee in Kapaa town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Great way to start a day or stop by for tea. I really like their T-shirts too and often grap a bag of beans to take home. Very relaxed atmosphere with a great cup of joe!
