We stopped here because it looked easy to get to from the interstate. The coffee was good, they had free wi-if, and a cozy atmosphere.

By far and away the best espresso we had when we were in downtown St Petes for a few days. This is centrally located and there is a spacious indoor cafe with a handful of tables on the shady sidewalk. It was a good option for a light breakfast.

The coffee scene in St Pete is improving, with lots of "hipsters" shops, but Kahwa is still the one with the best coffee in this area. Don't get attached to fancy manual brewing methods baristas can't actually do it right, just come here to get the best plain coffee from this area.

I'm not a fan of bitter coffee which Kahwa is - however, they have great choices of breakfast fare and sweets if that is your favorite - they have great outdoor seating as well as indoor seating

The cafe is a bit noisy. What really bothers me about the place is that the coffee is never hot. If I want a hot coffee, I have to walk a few blocks and find a Starbucks.

Hipster place with overpriced coffee. Nothing special except their prices indicate they think it is.

We locals, well the ones who like better coffee and supporting our own, flock to Kahwa coffee. Cool, inviting locations around town, tasty snacks and of course excellent coffee. Bravo to Kahwa coffee!

This coffee shop is located on a corner. I stop in there at least once a month before I go to a Whimsodoodle event. I do not drink coffee but love their hibiscus tea and quiches. The desserts are amazing too.

Thank Christine C
