My wife is a coffee snob, and she loved the dark roast drip. I had a latte and it was perfect. The service could have been a little faster, but this isn't really a complaint..the wait wasn't that bad considering how busy they were. We went there twice and enjoyed it both times.

We've been on the road for a few weeks now hence we enjoyed a break from the typical American style breakfast. Pleasant service, good quality food, great interior design and attention to detail. Reasonable meal sizes and the bread (admitting we are Germans!) made our day. Highly recommended for healthy breakfast- and if you want to go high on calories,... More

We got there at 10a yesterday for breakfast we waited 15 minutes with no menu and than I had to ask for one. After waiting almost 45 minutes for our order we complained to the waitress. The restaurant was full and she blamed the backup on a table for seven. They had two people working in the kitchen. Give me... More

This European style cafe just rocks for breakfast or lunch. Tired of eating plain old American fried eggs and hash browns? How about some smoked salmon with crabmeat salad and organic scrambled eggs served with a baguette and bread and butter? Love croissants? They've got warm ones that you can enjoy with Gouda cheese and ham. All the ingredients are... More

This is a little blue & white restaurant on the west side of the main road thru Kapaa. We just stopped for coffee one morning and although I looked at the dinner menu and planned to go back we never did. But....the coffee was good and the ham & cheese croissant was really good !

We came here for breakfast. It was delicious. Exactly what we were hoping for. My husband has the cream cheese and herb omelette and I had the tomato and mozzarella omelette. Both were amazing. My husband "accidentally " ate half of my omelette while I was feeding our baby girl. He usually doesn't go bananas for vegetarian food, but he... More

We were recommended Art Cafe H. by the hostess at our B&B. Every thing was excellent from the service to the coffee to the food. We arrived at about 11:30 a.m. and they were still serving breakfast and that is what we wanted as we got up too late to have breakfast at our B&B. Can highly recommend the Americano... More

We were in Kapaa for two nights and ended up eating here both nights. We found this on google maps and the Hemingway title caught our attention. We walked by it during the day to check it out and it immediately took us back to little bistros we would find in European neighborhoods. It's owned and operated by a husband... More
