Reviews and Comments:
The coffee was good, nice setting, and nice people. We
were disappointed though, they no longer lead any tours
or allow self-guided tours of the plantation (August
2014). There was an informational story board to look

We came here a few times during our Molokai vacation.
The coffee is good and the setting is nice. If you come
from a big city like we do, it is really charming to
find a cafe that is not crowded. One time we went in
the afternoon and most of the coffee tables were taken
because there was live music which was nice. The
downside: it can take a really long time to get your
coffee. They are not too fast in serving you. Also,
around 10 am there is a tour group coming (around 15-20
people) and if you happen to be there while all of them
order coffee it can take reaaaaally long until your
order is fulfilled. The food is so so. We have tried
worse on Molokai.

Living in Pasadena, CA, I have 5 choices of fresh roast
espresso places within 10 minutes of my house. But on
Molokai, you have "Coffees of Hawaii" with decent
espresso machines, or nothing. I can't speak for the
other review, but my food and pastries were a welcome
life preserver for an island with little gentrified
yuppie/boomer infrastructure. Which of course, is why
you go to Molokai.

I am sorry to say that I cannot recommend the
Moloka'i Coffees of Hawaii Plantation. After
waiting in a long line, in a tiny coffee shop that was
very hot inside, we bought a pastry and there were ants
on it; this was not realized until after my brother in
law took a bite out of it. The banana shake we ordered
was really sugary and made us all sick (no real bananas
were in it-just syrup). We were also treated poorly by
a saleswoman and decided to leave after that. They just
didn't live up to Moloka'i's motto:
"The Friendly Isle". Disappointed!
