We really enjoyed visiting the store. It is part gift store (with many locally made items), part museum, and part restaurant. They had a big selection of homemade cookies that were delicious. The store is on the Kona Heritage Corridor, just south of Holualoa (which also has many different artisan stores with locally made items).

The Keauhou Store is tucked away along the Kona Heritage Corridor and when you come across it, you want to stop and see what they have. It is a beautiful step into the past of Old Hawaii, where it is part museum and part local store with fresh fruit and vegetables for sale, homemade cookies that are delicious, and friendly... More

The Keauhou Store can be found up above Kona on the "Kona Heritage Corridor." It's a lovingly restored 1919 general store with original inventory on display as well as food, produce, baked goods, art work, jewelry and vintage items like 1950s cruise line menu covers that look like Hawaiian Diego Rivera paintings (sorry readers but I bought these). We chatted... More

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
