Kaua‘i is an island adorned in rainbows. If you are lucky enough to follow one to its end, you might just find yourself at Rainbeau Jo’s, one of Kaua‘i’s best food trucks. Specializing in locally sourced and organic coffee, delicious smoothies, and hearty breakfasts, Rainbeau Jo’s is every bit as dazzling as its heavenly namesake, and a must for anyone in search of a delicious breakfast and invigorating cup of coffee.
Everything about this colorful food truck is fresh, local, and organic. The life-long dream of an energetic couple – Beau and Jo, duh – whose sole desire is to bring you delicious coffee, an uplifting breakfast, and sparkling conversation, this is the perfect way to start your day. Their signature brew – Carpe Kope (from the Latin “to seize” and the Hawaiian for “coffee”) – was designed in partnership with Hammerhead Coffee Roasters and is a unique blend of beans Ethiopian Harrar, Brazilian, and Honduran beans. Quite simply, it is the rocket fuel for your daily adventures. Try their rotating coffee selections, their classic brew, or a hand-crafted espresso beverage. Rainbeau Jo’s is a fan favorite!
Local and Organic
Elsewhere on the menu are organic artisanal bagels from Ya Quddus Bagelry that form the backbone for delicious breakfast sandwiches. Choose from the Early Bird with pesto cream cheese, Strawberry Fields, Lox it up with smoked salmon cream cheese, or the Funky Monkey. Bagels run the entire spectrum (get it?) of flavors from plain to cheddar jalapeno, and there is a cream cheese for every taste bud, whether you like it sweet or savory. They also offer made to order smoothies featuring island fruits, local veggies from organic farms, and of course, plenty of kale.
