If you’re looking for a great place to kick off all your East Side Kauai adventures, put Garden Island Coffee on your map. At this ultra-cute artisan coffee stand, they go all out in creating bold, flavorful coffee drinks plus a whole lot more.

Garden Island Coffee sources all of their coffee beans from local micro-lot farms in an effort to provide all their patrons with an exquisite farm-to-cup experience. Beyond that, they always strive to use high-quality milks, syrups, and other excellent ingredients from trusted, local vendors.

Even if you’re not a coffee lover, you can easily find bright drinks that serve as the perfect morning pick-me-up, like their Mellow Lavender Cold Brew Tea. Want to take your beverage experience to the next level? Ask for a dank CBD infusion to help kick your day into high gear.  

Although their many excellent beverages are definitely the star of the show, Garden Island Coffee’s small-bite dishes serve as a great reason to stop by all on their own. Their signature Jaffle Bagel promises to satisfy all your cravings while leaving you feeling satisfied for the better part of the day. If you’d like something a little lighter, then it’s best to ask about their truly decadent Yolo Bites instead.

While their high-quality food and drinks set the stage for an amazing experience at every visit, Garden Island Coffee goes above and beyond by serving all their guests with plenty of aloha. Their friendly demeanor alone easily brightens the day, leaving you singing their praises as you explore the island.

Once you get your order, you can settle down at the picnic tables right onsite, although it’s better to take your items to the beach beyond. You can then settle in to enjoy the ocean views and peaceful atmosphere while savoring your selections.

Check out Garden Island Coffee’s:

Cold Brew Coffee
When you want to jumpstart your day in style, there’s perhaps no better way than their Cold Brew Coffee. They create each batch by steeping their quality beans in purified water for 18 hours and making handcrafted coffee ice cubes every night. Then, they bring it all together with your milk and syrup of choice, plus add CBD if you’d like.

Masala Chai Latte
Upon ordering the Masala Chai Latte, you can count on enjoying a spicy kick filled with the perfect blend of flavors. This drink always starts with their powerful spice-infused black tea, and then gets two shots of espresso if you prefer it dirty. You can then select your favorite syrups, milk, and even CBD to complete your drink.  

Jaffle Bagel
If your belly is rumbling upon arriving at the coffee stand, don’t hesitate to select one of their tasty Jaffle Bagels. Available in five distinct flavor combos, this fully-loaded bagel can easily satisfy all your cravings and give you enough energy to tackle your day.

Yolo Bite
Prefer to take your snack on the run and enjoy bit by bit throughout the day? Then, you’re going to love Garden Island Coffee’s ultra-portable and equally delicious Yolo Bites. These little snacks feature sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, goji berries, pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs, granola, and chia seeds. To hold it all together, they mix in peanut butter, almond butter, and honey, and then scoop it into delightful bites.  

If you’d like to share your adoration of Garden Island Coffee far and wide, then treat yourself to their awesome merchandise. They regularly have tons of branded swag available for purchase, including t-shirts and hoodies. Want to keep your swag rather lowkey? That’s possible, too. Just get a sunrise mug and stickers emblazoned with their logo.

Insider Tips:
-Want a sweeter kick infused with all the best island flavors? Just ask to add the macadamia nut milk to your drink.
-Although Garden Island Coffee strives to use their handcrafted coffee ice cubes in all their cold brew drinks, they often run out by mid-morning.
