We stopped here for a shaved ice after hiking the Pololu trail, we were treated to the best shaved ice we've had on the islands. They use real fruit juice, not concentrate - delicious (try the Hawaiian punch!) The cafe is laid back and relaxing, nice little deck to enjoy as well.

I had the best passionfruit shaved ice here! They use real fruit juice and I had the vanilla ice cream base, highly recommended!

We visited a few days before on an exploratory trip through Hawi and saw the Open Mic on Saturday night. What a lot of fun hearing the locals play their music! It had a really good vibe and we had a lot of fun listening to everyone jam together. It was all ages and all types of music. The drinks were decent too! Thanks for hosting this! We loved it

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!
