First of all this really isn't in Holualoa but in Honalo area. Just souith of Holualoa. It was run for years by one owner and unfortunately he passed away. It was taken over and remodeled to its former glory. Great place to visit and learn about the old times and to just get a cold drink.

This general store is partly a museum of historical artifacts, partly a general store of hip (and, often, locally made) hard goods, artwork, packaged foods and local produce, and partly a take-out/counter diner for a lovely snack and drinks. Just don't miss it!! Keauhou Store exudes the charm of Territorial Hawaii that exists no more.

We enjoyed a good hour looking at all the historical artifacts as well as history of this store and the people that established it in 1919. The current owners were so friendly and helpful and Tara autographed her picture for our girls, plus gave us free cookies. First place we'd found fresh basil too. Worth the stop and you can... More

Thank goodness for local magazines! This was a wonderful find. The topsy turvy drive through coffee plantations was amazing before opening up to a wee clearing where we were warmly welcomed by the store owners. They shared tales of the store and their lives, before serving us hot dogs and burgers like no other and delicious cookies!!! Well worth a... More

Stop in and pick up a burger or sandwich here while exploring Kona coffee area. Enjoy the historic displays while your food is prepared with fresh, local ingredients. A must-stop on the Mamalahoa Highway.

This place is like stepping into the past; there are many items on display from the original store that was built almost 100 years ago. Now they sell local produce, home made cookies and convenience store items; also T-shirts with logos from old programs/advertisements. There are some Hawaiian local craft items also. The owners are really nice and will chat... More

We drove by day after day and didn't stop. Should have stopped much sooner. We will definitely not pass by without stopping again. Love it

These folks treasure the old neighborhood. Stop by for some cookies . The old Mamalahoa highway is a great road to drive.

The cookies are great! Fresh fruit & home-grown vegetables. Memorabilia - Feel like you've taken a step back in time.

Keauhou Store is just the kind of place you find tootling around the Big Island. When the owners bought the place it was packed with years of old stuff, which they have cleverly placed on display, creating a museum as well as a local store. They also have the coolest t-shirt designs based on the vintage calendars and ads they... More
