Find iced espressos, frappes and more at Gorilla in the Cafe.

Hawai‘i’s coffee growers have one more reason to rejoice: Recently opened Gorilla in the Cafe is dedicated to serving not only some of the best cups of coffee around, but it also gets its supply from local award-winning farms and small independent roasters right here on the islands. Using pour-over drippers and French presses, each cup is expertly prepared on the spot. Though the cafe just opened, it already has a good amount of star-power—it’s owned by Korean super-star Bae Yong Joon. And with its fun and trendy atmosphere, you may want to linger with your espresso and macaroon instead of grabbing a drink to go.
