On rainy days my wife and I visited Java Cafe to enjoy a few good cups of coffee and stayed indoors to play some board games (which you can find on the shelves near the front door or in the windows). The coffee is ok (not the best I've had) and a bit over priced, the service is quick, and... More

We were looking for a local coffee option to support rather than the chain coffee shop.

We checked out Java 3.0 (which is actually called Maui Coffee now) right before leaving for Kauai this afternoon. I grabbed a medium Thai Coffee which was absolutely delicious, and my girlfriend had a Cafe Au Lait (cafe olé) was also a tickler of the tongue, to say the least. Highly recommended.

Don't drink specialty beverages, but the regular coffee was pretty tasteless. The two people I was with were equally unimpressed.

I went to java cafe every morning for cold-brew for 5 days straight. The coffee is fresh, the service is great, and most of all the cold brew is outstanding.

Excellent coffee skilfully prepared by lovely baristas. Local art on sale, enough bandwidth for your (mobile) surfing.
