Ok, so its Hawaii and we take things slow here. But this is ridiculous. Line is all the way out the door. 4 people working the counter. Takes 15+ minutes to make a drink. We have been here several times on vacation and this is the absolute slowest Starbucks I have ever been to anywhere. Good product. Way to slow.... More

The iced coffee is not the only thing that is cold as ice here! It is freezing. Not the nicest Starbucks I have seen but thanks for the wifi!

The drinks are standard Starbucks stuff. I really appreciated the employees. I went here almost every day of my vacation, and they were always upbeat and made my drinks exactly as ordered.

This store is located in the shopping center located directly across from the Waipouli Beach Resort. There is no drive-through, but there is ample free parking.

For you Mainlanders, I am a Dunkin Donuts guy. Needed and Ice coffee fix, only drink there Blond. They were out of it. The teenage staff was what you would expect from a teenage "restaurant" staff. Like I said needed a coffee fix would up with their regular ice coffee, too bitter for me.

After a bicycle ride in Kapaa, we wanted a cold coffee drink. We found our drinks, friendly staff and quick turn-around once ordered. There are long lines at times which is not Starbucks fault. The Cold Brew seems to goes quickly so get there early. The store is large yet seating is limited due to lack of furniture. Another great... More

Excellent coffee and service with a smile. I enjoyed their iced coffee and they make great frappucinos.

If you are visiting Kauai and really need a fix of what your mainland life looks like, you'll enjoy Kauai. Coffee and pastries is just as good as any other Starbucks I've been to and there is lots of seating here. I actually had to go her recently because my internet went down and I knew I could count on... More

This Starbucks location is in a shopping center convenient to Waipouli Beach Resort, right across the street from the entrance. The staff was very friendly and the drinks made to order. Overall, a nice visit.
