This place was a gem to come across! The history of the store and all the treasures that have been there since the beginning were a blast. The owners were absolutely fantastic and kept it true to the original owner. The cookies are a must!

I love it when someone has a vision and sees it through. That's what the Keauhou Store is. It stood in disrepair for many years until a transplanted resident bought it and created an amazing place that honors the store's history. It is a popular place with visitors and locals alike. The old display cases are full of old items... More

This is an old-fashioned general store and lunch place that really takes you back to old Hawaii. Established in 1919 and lovingly restored by the owners, locals Thea and Kurt. They sell great sandwiches, locally grown fruits, vegetables and their own coffee that they grow. The store is decorated with items from its almost 100 year old history and they... More

I bought a cap (my favorite ever) at this great old fashion general store on our vacation in Hawaii. When I got home the cap blew overboard and we were unable to retrieve it. I emailed Thea (the owner) who promptly mailed me out a new one after making sure she had the right cap still available. I received it... More

The proprietress is welcoming and the store itself has to be seen to be appreciated. All the things they found are now wonderfully displayed and its a great story to hear. The food is yummy, and the cookies, especially the macnut butter cookies are delish!

An interesting stop along the way. Lots of items to look at from a bygone era, and many for sale. Almost a free museum, with a general store all wrapped up in one. The owner was friendly and helpful. She Introduced us the apple bananas and we bought some to try. They are not as sweet as regular bananas and... More

Stopped by to see the place and to have a mid morning snack. The store has old fashioned, quirky items, food and souvenir-like, to make it worth stopping for. Tried some good home-made cookies and accompanied this with a cold beverage of coconut water. Picked up some ginger and peanut butter candy that is far from ubiquitous Excellent

If you're looking for an example of old Hawaii, stop here. There's tons of old "new" stock. The hamburgers are great. Really nice view from the eating area. Local made gifts. Worth a detour.

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).
