Tucked behind the San Lorenzo swimsuit shop, this garden coffee shop is Paia’s bestkept secret. Pop in for an expertly brewed espresso and a fresh-baked croissant or slice of banana bread and you’ll see locals networking in shady corners over cappuccinos. The menu is a bit more sophisticated than that of your typical cafe, with a focus on local and sustainable. In addition to the standard bagel and lox, the kitchen turns out organic scrambled eggs and sandwiches garnished with brie, sliced green apple, microgreens, tomato, and black-pepper herb mayo. The vegan bagel is delicious— topped with roasted red peppers, local avocado, tomato, and pesto. The baristas are genuinely friendly and make everything with care here. New owners have added happy hour and dinner service, with shareable starters and tasty craft cocktails, like the lychee martini and mango mojito, as well as live music. Fun theme nights include Wahine Wednesdays, when all staff and entertainment are women.
