If you are looking for a unique, natural setting for an exquisite cup of coffee and a bite to eat, check out Da Green Coffee Bar. This locally owned specialty coffee shop located right inside the South Maui Gardens Nursery is an explosion for all your senses. This hidden gem on Auhana Road in Kihei is owned by husband and wife entrepreneurial and community-oriented team, Alison and Keith. Their mission is to make your experience a ten out of ten while honoring the area’s flora and fauna! And you will see why the second you find this eclectic, unforgettable gathering spot. You’ll want to stick around and stay for a while.
Look for the lime green house with the surfboard and two magnificent lion stone statues flanking the stairway. The orange picnic tables outside under the iconic palm trees swaying in the breeze underneath the crystal blue sky add an artistic and cheerful touch. There is plenty of other outdoor seating under the lush tropical greenery lined with string lights and tranquil decor. You’ll love the mesmerizing pond full of thriving and abundant lily pads, fountains, and eye-catching landscaping features. They call this area, The Butterfly Zone because beautiful butterflies cheerfully flutter by dancing among the flowers and foliage. It’s like an oasis that is both relaxing and exhilarating at the same time. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and the most amazing customer service. Everyone is happy here and so will you. This includes the resident tortoise, named George that wanders throughout the area. Make sure you say, “hello!”
Da Green Coffee House has a coffee menu created from fresh ground coffee beans ground right on site. You can’t get any fresher than that. Select from:
- Cafe latte
- Espresso single shot
- Iced Coffee
- House Drip
- Chai Latte
- Iced Chai Latte
- House Berry Smoothie
You can get a delicious bite to eat, too. The fan-favorite Da Toast Menu is more than just your regular impression of toasted bread. These are extra specialty menu items crafted with the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Each one is designed with a healthy twist to feed your appetite and complement your coffee perfectly. They all start with freshly baked bread made right next door at Blue Door Bakery. Perfectly sliced, toasted, and then delicious combinations are tucked inside to create mouthwatering and tantalizing treats. Maybe the Da Greek will hit the spot with sourdough bread topped with homemade hummus and a Greek salad made with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, chives, and a fresh squeeze of lemon to brighten things up will hit the spot. Or The Da Avo which also starts with sourdough toast topped with avocado chili pepper flakes, salt, and pepper and served with a wedge of lemon. You’re in for a treat if they have specials of the day. The Da Ebs is complete with toasted sourdough bread, creamy fresh almond butter, strawberry, and banana slices all topped with savory hemp seeds.
Make it a point to add Da Green Coffee Bar to your Maui “must visit” list. It will leave you wanting more and you’ll likely make plans to return again and again. Aloha!
