Aloha!
Just curious what TCers think about a hawaiian style coffee joint. I have had the idea for a long time but just recently aquired the space next to me. Would love to hear your input. My thought is to offer really good coffee and tropical smoothies, as well as island sweets and maybe shave ice for summer (?) Other ideas include: Ukulele lessons on certain nights, local artists showcase, hawaiian videos on a flat panel tv, wireless internet (???), local papers and mags etc. all in a very relaxed bamboo encrusted setting.
I have a huge list of names I came up with but narrowed it down to these few (let me know what you think)
1.Hot Lava java
2.Island Grinds
3.Ukulele Cafe
4.Island Bean
5.Hukilau Cafe (over-used?)
6.Aloha Cafe
7.Kahunas Koffee
8.Kailua Cafe
Any suggestions, comments, etc. please respond or drop me an email:
tikishop@sbcglobal.net

My vote goes for "Hot Lava Java".

Mahalos for the input! I too like Hot Lava Java and coincidently got turned on to a very cool mug that would fit right in to that theme! I will start destructing the interior March 1. Anyone who wants to pick up a sledge hammer and get your frustrations out is welcome to do so. I am hoping to have it done by May and will have a very Grand opening. Smokin' Menehunes, are you listening?

there is a hawaiian themed coffee joint below the embassy suites in downtown san diego, last I was there. they played live music at night and sold beer as well. neat idea, kind of dive-y.

Great ideas! Island Grinds is another one of my faves but a friend in the south bay has a catering biz with same name. Hey Pup, Howzabout a bannana fudge mocha? Danger, do you know the name of the place in SD?

Hey Wes, that's going to be great! Is it where the chicken/burger joint was or the flower/gift shop? I don't think you can go wrong having it next to House of Tiki, they will support each other perfectly.

I own a sledge hammer!

Sorry folks - the name went many years ago. It's made by Taylors of Harrogate (Yorkshire UK) and is the best coffee on the market.

How about just "Lava Java" ?

I think it's got a nice ring to it...

Sure, we can help with the demo. also, scott is a tile contractor if you need some tile done in the new joint, he can maybe help (or help you get a discount on some tile). you've met him-he's the one that was talking to you at the Aloha Days in Hermosa-right before he got nailed with the "open container" ticket from the wonderful hermosa bch police. Let us know if you need help at gina@coconutkiss.com
