This Coco's was built on the site of the famous Kau Kau Korner which stood here from 1935 to 1960.
The well-known Hawaii restaurant chain, Spencecliff, took over the site in 1960 and remodeled the existing structure into a more modern building for Coco’s. This Coco's was one of three Hawaiian-style coffee shops designed by the famous architect Pete Wimberly. The other two were Tops and Popo's.
Within this Coco's coffee shop was the Calabash Bar. This location lasted until August 31, 1986.
The Hard Rock Café replaced Coco’s in 1987.
Today, as of 2022, this location is home to the Honolulu Coffee Experience Center.
