First Light Coffee and Juice Bar serves coffee, juices and pastries on-site at the Sheraton Kauai Coconut Beach Resort. If you’re staying at the hotel, this is the most convenient place to fuel up for the day.

The coffee options at First Light Coffee and Juice Bar are all fairly standard beverages, but they’re well-made as you’d expect at a quality resort. Get an espresso for its quick jolt or a redeye if you came in on last night’s flight. For something a little more delicate, baristas regularly decorate cappuccinos and lattes with artistic designs.

Of course, not all of the coffees at any Kauai coffee shop will be hot. If you need something a little cooler, the nitro cold brew is a guest favorite. Almost anything can be made blended or iced if you prefer, though.

Complementing the coffee beverages is an array of non-caffeinated juices that are all freshly pressed. Whether you’re looking for a sweet fruit concoction or a cleansing vegetable-heavy juice, you’ll find at least one (and likely more) good choice on the menu. 

Pastries and sandwiches comprise the food menu, and these afford a good selection of sweet and filling items. The muffins, croissants, and turnovers are all popular morning treats that go well with coffee, while the sammies pair nicely with cold juices in the afternoon.

First Light Coffee and Juice Bar might not be where you’d go if you’re staging elsewhere on Kauai — there are other coffee shops with more local flare. If you’re already at the Sheraton, though, this is a convenient place that makes good coffees and juices. Stop by when you’re hanging out at the resort or headed somewhere, and you won’t be disappointed.

A few of our favorite menu items at First Light Coffee and Juice Bar include:

Cappuccino
A smaller espresso-and-milk beverage, this won’t be too much on a hot day. The foam art will look as good as the beverage tastes.

Nitro Cold Brew
Nothing provides an afternoon pick-me-up like nitro cold brew. Cold-brew is more caffeinated than standard coffee (or espresso), and the nitrous oxide delivers the caffeine to your body faster.

Freshly Pressed Juice
Whole fruits and vegetables are pressed on-demand for a refreshing and rejuvenating beverage. This is one that will taste good and is good for you.

Muffins
Sweet and fluffy, the muffins are baked daily for the perfect morning treat. They go especially well with a cup of coffee.

Sandwich
A lighter but still filling fare, one of the sandwiches will have you satiated. Pair it with freshly pressed juice for a meal that’s both visually and tastefully enticing.
