First time trying Kava or Kratom and I'm glad to say it was an enjoyable experience and awesome beverage. The employee working was super friendly and knowledgeable to all my questions as a newbie to Kava/Kratom. The drink works quite well and noticed an immediate effect of mental clarity and elevated mood + Focus. I tried the Ginger Beet & Kratom tea and purchased more to go. Had a wonderful quick chat with one of the owners who was super friendly as well. Highly recommend anyone curious about coffee or alcohol alternatives try this place. The Hawaiian themed decor also made for a enjoyable and pleasant vibe!

Super friendly and welcoming staff, they’re eager to educate about their non-alcoholic drinks and easy to talk to. Expect to pay what you would for an alcoholic beverage. Very limited outdoor seating.

Best Kava bar in the Triangle, hands down. Brent & Zoe do it right!

This place is super cute! I’ve been twice in the last week, once sat down and once grab&go. Delicious and effective drinks and a relaxing vibe. The baristas are super informative and friendly too!

One of my favorite drinks here- Kava Java. This place is so warm and welcoming to new peeps and regulars. I like bringing friends here to wind down after a long day, super peaceful and friendly vibes. And I always like to learn more while I'm here. They're great at answering questions I didn't know I had.

You’re looking for an awesome vibe with non alcoholic drinks. It’s great work space, great for connecting with friends and even to go solo. The people who work and patronize are lovely. Drinks are amazing and refreshingly healthy!

Love this spot to hang out and sip on a non-alcoholic beverage, whether socializing or finishing out the workday. The staff is awesome, friendly, inviting, and they're great educators about all things kava!

Awesome find in Durham! My husband and I are sober but have really been looking for a “bar” to still have that experience. What a great place! We’ll definitely be regulars.

I'm surprised this isn't more popular. I liked trying something new and the staff could not have been more helpful. Definitely returning!

I really enjoy going here after work. Like most I don't drink alcohol, so a nice relaxing drink after work is soothing. On top that the employees are really welcoming, so pay them a visit & give kava a try !

I love this place. I do not drink alcohol so it is nice to go to a bar and get drinks that are nonalcoholic. Don’t be afraid to give kava a try. It is a mild flavored root that helps you feel relaxed. They have many cocktails made with various ingredients to create yummy combinations. They have a super cool outdoor area as well.

You get the whole package at Da Kine's. Zoey and Brent are very knowledgeable and always give you the ultimate kava experience. It's a positive environment and great to meet new people or just hang back by yourself. I've had nothing but pleasant experiences and they really strive to make the best product. They constantly have new kava cocktails and I haven't been disappointed yet.Totally worth it🤙

Love this place! The vibe reminds me of hanging out in Hawaii. I love working remotely at their shop. For those who have never tried kava, this place is a must! They have a variety of different beverages and do a fantastic job of tailoring your drink to your tastes. Kava definitely helps me relax at the end of the day. A must for those who also enjoy CBD.

Loved this place!! We stopped in while visiting our daughter and her crew over Christmas! Zoey was behind the bar and kindly explained to my daughter and I (my husband was already Kava savvy) about Kava, how they researched and responsibly sourced their products, gave us samples of the different drinks and recommended customer favorites. The bar was bright and clean, Zoey and Brent were very knowledgeable and friendly, and we will definitely be making it a regular highlight of all our future visits!

Durham is lucky to have Da Kine's Kava. I drove from Cary after completing the order online. It was super easy to get to. My package was reach when I arrived. I ordered a latte with 2 drops of CBD. I have to tell you, this was the best cup of coffee I have ever had! What a wonderful surprise! I will definitely be back and recommend everyone checking this out. Coffee is only a small part of the menu.

I am very impressed with this kava bar. Coming from FL I was super happy I found one, even more so after visiting. Nick, the kava tender, was very helpful and knowledgeable and the kratom was brewed perfectly, very potent as well as tasty. The vibes here were awesome and I will definitely be returning!!
