We stopped in early one morning for a light breakfast and enjoyed their coffee and chai latte. They also have a few pastries as well as other breakfast options like acai bowls. There is indoor and outdoor seating and the service is polite and prompt.

We love Honolulu Coffee. Woke up this morning, walked from the Marriott, could not wait. The Coffee as remembered - latte for me. Why would one go to Starbucks when you have Honolulu as an option. Acai Brown not quite as good as the ones on Oahu, but still a welcomed breakfast. I will be there every day this week.... More

Nice place, but the barista did not seem to understand the difference between a cappuccino and a latte. Whatever size cup you request, expect it to be filled to the top with milk. We learned to order the medium 12 oz size cappuccino and ask them to make it with 4 shots if espresso instead of 2.

Latte's are outstanding, don't bother going to the big chain. The pastry case could be more diverse and a higher quality is all. Great service.

Actually attended the Honolulu Coffee store within Hyatt Maui Ka'aanapali Beach. The espresso style coffee is great. The small size is equivalent to most Australian cafe's large size, and I found it better with an extra shot. Its smooth, and on par with a good latte back in Melbourne.

Get the 100% kona coffee or the drips. You can really taste the essence of the bean. Don't add anything at first, then dress it mildly with sweeteners and cream as you wish. If you're going to be there several times, get a stamp card

After reading TripAdvisor reviews decided to try this coffee outlet & was not disappointed. Often the coffee made in other countries is very different to what we are used to in Australia but this coffee was a good find. Even though there was only one staff member on & we had to wait it was worth it. The only recommendation... More

Honolulu Coffee makes delicious hot & cold coffee drinks. Better than any coffee we've had on the mainland. Espresso is very robust and the Nutty Hawaiian is our favorite. The staff is very friendly and they remember us from day to day and memorize our orders :)

So the coffee here is boring and has no real flavor profile. I think they ise Kona beans which have a reputation for being amazing but are really lacking in quality. Try Akamai coffee in Kihei if you want to have a good cup of local coffee.

Description
Specialties

Honolulu Coffee provides the complete Hawaiian Coffee experience. We grow and process our own 100% Kona coffee, owning one of the highest elevation Kona Coffee farms in Captain Cook, Big Island.

Our artisan baristas invest many training hours to make the perfect espresso, latte, and cappuccino with handcrafted expertise. Our Hawaiian teas are fresh and uniquely blended with fresh tropical flavors. We serve freshly baked French pastries and desserts made-from-scratch, fresh sandwiches, smoothies and acai bowls also offered.

Our employees are passionate about our farm to cup sustainability and our commitment to serving the finest Hawaiian coffees for our guests in a gracious island setting that reflects Hawaii's Aloha Spirit. We custom roast each coffee bean to the right profile to preserve the flavor that nature created.

Our stores are located on Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and in China, Guam and Japan. We also offer unique locally grown products such as honey fresh from the farm, fresh Hawaiian fruit jams, chocolate covered coffee beans, and many unique Hawaiian gift items surely to please those who enjoy a little aloha in their life. All of our coffee beans and retail products are available in our stores and on our website.
