Best coffee around. Even tried their sweet potato ice cream and it was great. Excellent service with a friendly staff willing to please.

Wellington, New Zealand is known for the best cafes and coffee 'in the world'. It's reported we have more cafes per capita than New York. We love good coffee... We got a word of mouth tip to go Chadlou's in Kailua and have to say we had our best coffee on this side of Oahu. So happy! The food looked... More

Quiet and relaxing. Good coffee. Didn't try the affagato but am willing to bet it's delicious. Outlets available if you need to charge a device.

This is the perfect little spot to grab a late afternoon snack after shopping the surrounding neighborhood. The staff is always helpful and take their time to explain the new items and options.

We read about ChadLou's in Hawaii Magazine. We went for the made-to-order ice cream sandwiches, and they did not disappoint. The cookies are made in store, and customers can choose two cookies and ice cream to make the sandwiches. I got gingerbread cookies with Kona ice cream, and my husband got chocolate chip cookies with cookies and cream ice cream.... More

Surrounded by some great independent boutiques, ChadLou's is a diamond in the sea of chain coffee joints! - great coffee and filtered chilled water in jars - we loved it and will be back while we are still here in this great place!!

We visited Chadlou's almost every day of our trip. It's a great space, with local art, a library, wifi and the best coffee on Oahu! The people there are friendly and it's a wonderful place to hang out.
