If there’s one thing Hawaii knows how to do right…it’s coffee. From Kona coffee to blends, foam art and beyond, the islands have exactly what you need to get your day started…or to keep it going! Here are my absolute must visit coffee shops if you happen to be visiting Oahu.
1. Green World Farms, Wahiawa, Oahu, Hawaii Located right off the highway en route to Oahu’s famed North Shore sits Green World Coffee Farm. A coffee grower’s cafe & espresso bar with retail space that sells whole beans & Hawaiian specialties, this is a can’t miss. Free samples of chocolate covered espresso beans and specialty coffee drinks keep patrons coming back for more. It helps you can relax and enjoy your coffee amongst the trees that grow your brew! 2. Coffee Gallery, Haleiwa, Oahu, Hawaii Tucked inside the North Shore Marketplace sits Coffee Gallery, a cozy shop serving artisanal hand-roasted coffee from Hawaii & beyond, plus a bakery and art exhibits. Be sure to snag a spot on the porch and enjoy your beverage! 3. Arvo Cafe, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii In the trendy neighborhood of Kakaako in Honolulu sits boutique coffee sport, Arvo. An Australian inspired cafe, you can wet your palate with an assortment of toasts and specialty brew. Be sure to try out their famed Unicorn Latte!
4. Local Joe, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii
When a coffee lover turned brewmaster collide, you get Local Joe. Using all locally sourced products for both coffee and baked goods, it’s the only spot in the islands that offers Coffee Ripples — the ability to put any image of your choosing in your coffee foam.
5. Waialua Sugar Mill, Waialua, Oahu, Hawaii
A historical sugar refinery turned farm and shop, the Waialua Sugar Mill is also home to delicious locally-grown coffee. Be sure to take the brief coffee tour and learn how the cup you’re sipping on is brewed! This hidden hotspot can be a bit tricky to find, so be sure to have a map handy when traveling.
6. Olive & Oliver, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii
Tucked inside the swanky Surfjack Hotel, sits Olive & Oliver. One part trendy designs and one part retro coffee cafe, the decor alone makes me want to visit here daily. The cute cups and delicious brew are just an added bonus 😉
