The service here is kind of slow. It might, however, be worth the wait if you’re not in a rush. The coffee is fairly tasty. But it’s a bit pricey. A cup of joe will set you back almost $6.
Java Kai is one of the first places I come when I visit Kauai. They serve the best coffee on the island...no question. They offer great smoothie creations, really good fresh food, and the friendliest staff on the planet. If you want to stop in for a quick treat, hang out with your computer, or just people watch, the Java... More
Best juices/ smoothies, and you must try the Mediterranean Salad Plate!! 4 stars! Prompt and friendly customer service. Nice island atmosphere, great music playing. I have been to Java Kai 5 times in two days, and I am heading there again for my fresh morning go green smoothie!
Had a smoothies and cinnamon rolls, the drinks took a bit of time to get, but, it was well worth the wait. Highly recommend this place!

Counter staff are a friendly, professional group of unique individuals. Be sure to check out... More
We stayed in the area for ~ 5 days. Found this place on day 2...and went every day thereafter. One of my trip souvenir shirts is from this place I liked the coffee so much. The espresso drinks are individually pulled shots (not machine measured). It's a craft cafe, if you will. And the pastries are worthy of a french... More
Visited Java Kai at least four times this past June. Coffee drinks are, of course, really tasty and fresh. They never served "overdone" coffee - coffee that has been sitting on a burner too long. Their smoothies are filling and quite refreshing. After a morning of kayaking and snorkeling in Hanalei, I stopped by Java Kai on my way back... More
