It's hard finding a decent coffee in Hawaii. The coffee here was certainly drinkable which is more than I can say for some places. Service was good very pleasant and helpful.

I attended this cafe on a number of occasions as it was inside our hotel. The food was lovely although there isn't a very big range but was just what we needed to start the day. The coffee was excellent too (and real coffee not that filtered stuff they are into over there)! They also service the pool area if you are a guest of the Beachcomber but you need to walk in to give your order. The staff are a little slow but the food and coffee and cocktails make up for it. The way they have set it up looks lovely too!

A great place to drop in for a coffee fix. lovely food and really good coffee. Collect your coffee and move outside to one of the tables in the shade for a relaxing ecperience.

The prices are more expensive than starbucks but you pay for the quality. We regularly bought the iced caramel macchiato which is super yummy. We stayed at the Ilikai so it is just an elevator ride away. The acai bowl was good but prefer the ones at Goofy Cafe just down the road. If you are used to real fresh barrista brewed coffee then this is your place.

Coffee was good but service at the Waikiki location inside the Holiday Inn Beachcomber was just awful. I waited a ridiculous amount of time, the cashier did not know the answer to four different menu questions. I had to ask so many questions because their menu tells what kind of food but with no descriptions for how it's prepared and no prices. One person who seemed like the shift manager seemed like she knew what she was doing but obviously not managing the rest of the staff. I only went since it was inside our hotel.

Aloha Timothy,

I'm truly sorry that your experience with us wasn't simply amazing as we thrive to be the best in the business.
Please know that Hawaiin Aroma is part of an organization that provides equal opportunities and jobs to less fortunate people from the pacific such as Guam , Saipan and Micronesia. We are fully aware of their Language Barrier which sometimes makes them look clueless and insecure. However, we strongly believe that with a little Aloha and a lot of patience we can make the world a better place. We apologize you had to wait and we apologize that the service wasn't superb . Please let us make it up to you in the morning where we have 6 staff members working versus 2 in the afternoon and we are certain that your experience will be great.
Thank you for your understanding.
