Kalapawai Hawaii A neighborhood market by the beach, we’ve been serving up fresh sandwiches, gourmet coffee, and specialty goods to the Kailua community since 1932!

Welcome to Kalapawai Market! We’re a neighborhood market by the beach serving up fresh sandwiches, gourmet coffee, and specialty goods to the local community. Located at the beautiful entrance to Kailua Beach Park and just minutes away from world-famous Lanikai Beach, we’ve been a part of life for Kailua and Lanikai residents since 1932! Many of our customers have grown up with Kalapawai Market -- from snacks and drinks after school or coffee, sandwiches and wine on the way to the beach. At Kalapawai Market, our specialty is coffee. We offer a full line of gourmet espresso and coffee drinks as well as a full line of our own Hawaiian-Roasted coffees. We proudly feature Hawaiian Paradise Coffees in all of our espresso beverages. We have carefully selected our gourmet bean sources and worked with quality roasters and blenders to bring to you truly world-class gourmet coffees! It has truly been our pleasure to help preserve our special way of life. We welcome you to visit us and enjoy our hospitality today!

Are you continuing to pay your wait staff while the dining rooms are closed? If not, are you planning on setting up a virtual tip jar, or somehow providing other support for your wait staff and others whose income will be affected by COVID-19? I'm sure many of your regulars would be willing to assist in some way during this time.
Great job Kalapawai Café for taking care of the crew!
Check out the burger stand next to the market. Fresh cooked on the grill, super juicy and tender burger. 10 out 10 in my book.
