Javaa Kai (Kapaa, Kauai)

Rating: A

So our trip to Kauai started off really well.  On the way to the hotel, we stopped at a place called Java Kai in Kapaa (on the way to Princeville) to get a coffee because we had gotten up at around 3am.  It turned out that in addition to our much needed coffee, they had GLUTEN FREE SUNRISE MUFFINS that were AMAZING!!!!  They had carrots and pineapple and coconut and maybe some nuts.  Even though I love Sweet Marie’s Bakery a ton, this was still the best muffin I had on the island.  I got one again on the way out, in addition to stopping at Sweet Marie’s and meeting Marie herself.  Here’s the website for Java Kai. I neglected to get a picture of this place, but it’s basically just a cute little coffee shop. The muffins are definitely worth the trip
