Come here first! Grab yourself some Kava and some lau lau. ( hope thats how you spell it ). The gal behind the counter seemed quite protective of her kava. Lol.. All good though because it works, at least for me. Wasn't super enthused for the kahlua pork though not bad.

This place is a cute shop nothing like your Starbucks in terms of decor but the coffee is incredible! The baked goods are homemade in flavor. But, what you really need to try here is the Kava. They make the drink in house and it is potent (FYI I think it taste like dirt smells). This is one of those places that you must visit because almost everybody who stops in Hawi does!

Nice server, good smells and creativity in fudges, ice cream and they even had small kava chocolate bars. Kava was a treat in the special bowls and we also got a great lilikoi spritzer type drink.

We stopped in for some shave ice on our visit to Hawi. The staff was very sweet and shaved some ice for us, filled it with ice cream, and we sat on the lovely porch and enjoyed. Hawi is like a little hippie hangout!
