On an island with a history of sugar AND coffee plantations, you better believe a place called Plantation Coffee Company knows what they are doing. At this Kaua’i coffee company the mantra is simple: Healthy food makes for a wealthy mood. That’s why they offer a bevy of delicious, healthy options for breakfast and lunch, along with a potent lineup of delectable coffee drinks and soothing natural teas to get your day started right (and help it finish strong). You can find their colorful store in the Plantation Building in downtown Līhu‘e, and their convenient location makes it easy to pop in for a fill-up or to grab a refreshing iced coffee for the road so you can enjoy it on one of the nearby beaches of Kaua‘i’s famed Coconut Coast.
The Coffee of This Kaua’i Coffee Company
Plantation Coffee Company is first and foremost all about the joe. Their menu includes a selection of fresh brewed coffees from across the Hawaiian Islands as well as smooth and delicious French Press coffee. No matter which you choose, each is as strong and as delicious as the last. Friendly baristas are standing by to pull you velvety shots of espresso and make you a handcrafted drink like a caramel latte, a mocha, or the Americano (sure to help you get up and go). Drinks are available hot or iced, and fresh fruit smoothies and a wide selection of teas are available for those who aren’t in a coffee mood (we assume such people exist).
Hungry? Choose from homemade granola topped with your choice of milk and fresh local fruit, acai bowls, a selection of fresh bagels and cream cheeses, a classic breakfast burrito, and gooey-delicious-oh-so-yummy banana bread. For lunch they open things up with a selection of handmade sandwiches. Choose – if you can – from scrumptious options like the Turkey Rose (oven-roasted turkey breast with rosemary-infused mayo), the Wabisabi (wasabi tuna salad), every manner of BLT imaginable, classic Roast Beef, or the ever-popular Club Sandwich (you don’t even have to be a member!). Hot-pressed panini sandwiches are a welcome warm meal after a morning in the ocean. We love the Reuben with its tangy sauerkraut and sweet Russian dressing atop salty corned beef or pastrami, but they are all delicious. Add on a snack pack or a side salad and don’t forget that iced coffee!
Plantation Coffee Company is open 7am to 2pm Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays from 7am to 11am.
