Are you looking for the perfect drink to put a little pep in your step while you explore Lahaina and beyond? If so, you just need to take a quick trip on over to VigiLatte Artisan Coffee. Located in a quaint courtyard along Front Street, this ultra-cute coffee stand always rolls out its signature drinks with flair. Italian sodas and baked goods join the party, so you can always satisfy all your cravings at every visit.

Their coffee is the star of the show, of course, served either hand-shaken or with latte art right on top. They only use single-origin beans in the creation of each cup of joe and then brew them up in precisely calibrated machines. After that, they use proven preparation techniques that take all the robust coffee flavors to the next level.

All their drinks are well worth a try as a result. And their visually striking menu makes it easy to work your way through the list. While viewing the colorful menu board, you can see all the ingredients that make up each drink, complete with their ideal ratios. Once you figure out which drink is calling your name, you’ll need to decide if you want it served piping hot or icy cold. They even have a couple of frozen, blended drinks to help you cool off fast. Not really a fan of coffee? That’s okay! They have delicious Italian Sodas as well.

Even though they put a whole lot of care into the creation of every drink, you’ll always get your orders faster than expected. The baristas definitely know their way around the coffee machines – and the latte art doesn’t even slow them down. Their dedication to sending ample aloha your way never wanes either, making them a one-stop-shop for friendly service and heavenly cups of joe.

Although you won’t end up standing around for long, you can grab an open table nearby and take a load off during the brief wait. You’re even welcome to stick around for a while and sip on your drinks if you prefer. Most patrons take their drinks to go and wander along the main drag while blissfully sipping the day away.

Don’t miss the chance to sample the:

Nutellaccino
The Nutellaccino is always a sure bet when you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth. To create this popular drink, they add equal parts Nutella, milk, and espresso. Then, they top it all off with milk foam to add a bit of lightness to the equation.

Vanilla Bean Granita
When only a rich, frozen drink will do, go with the Vanilla Bean Granita, for sure. This drink features an exquisite vanilla bean shake base that’s lightly sweet and 100% delicious. To that, they add their single-origin coffee before blending it all up right.

Italian Soda
If you prefer a tropical kick in every sip, the Italian Soda is where it’s at. You’ll just have to choose between all their fresh fruit flavors, like mango, strawberry, passion fruit, passion colada, and guava. Once you do that, they’ll add your natural syrup of choice to carbonated water, and then hit it with a bit of cream.

If you’re feeling a little snacky during your visit, treat yourself to their freshly baked Croissants, Banana Bread, and so much more. No matter what flavors you’re in the mood for, they likely have a sweet or savory treat that’ll hit the spot. Just let the team know what you’re craving, and then get ready for pure decadence in every last bite.
