chadlou’s is one of my favorite coffee shops on oahu located on the east side of the island in kailua! my good friend sheila and her husband are the owners and they are two of the sweetest people i have ever met. when i want to get out of the house, i come here to do work and set up camp for the day at one of the tables in the back room. it really is everything i love in a coffeeshop – super cozy, good ambience, free wi-fi, and yummy food + drinks. (the ice cream cookie sandwiches and this new nutella bread thing i was lucky enough to sample are definitely treats worth splurging on.) they recently installed that ladder/shelving unit for the loose leaf tea they now sell — how cool is that?? i kinda love it. if you are making a trip to oahu and plan on circling the island, chadlou’s is the perfect place for an afternoon snack or coffee break after spending some time on the beautiful beaches of kailua. plus, it has cute boutiques on either side that are worth stopping in for some shopping!
