“Great coffee. Hawaiian concept has Spam, rice dishes and plate lunch on week-ends. Friendly staff, low key comfort.”

I was on the lookout for some Kona coffee in the area and stumbled across Red Dirt Coffee House. It's located in a strip mall and is somewhat cluttered inside but that seemed to be part of the charm. I have the Maui sunrise breakfast...More

This is a Hawaiian-themed coffee house. They have a large variety of coffee drinks in addition to a limited food menu. While not large, they have very comfortable, homey, seating. A great place to slowly enjoy a caffeinated beverage and perhaps a piece of pastry.

I frequently get coffee here and also pick up large canisters of coffee for large meetings. Very helpful staff and delicious food for lunch, Hawaiian theme. and some times ukelele music. The best!

If you like peanut butter, this is a must try item. It was the best frappe I've ever had. They also serve food here. The musubi brought back memories of Hawaii. I'd go here again!

Very basic place to eat which is what their goal is. They usually have Island dishes available each day which will vary. Prices are reasonable. Service is genuine (want you to be happy).

Was referred to Red Dirt coffee while staying in Pismo. Best coffee I've ever had. Tasted so fresh, you could really tell a difference. Can't wait to go back next time we are in town.
