Stopped here with my Mom to grab some lunch. We had the chicken salad sandwich and although it was good, there was enough chicken salad on one sandwich to make 4...very messy and wasteful. Service was very slow and they were steady but not real busy. I had a lizard that sat next to me on the railing and had... More

Great place for lunch overlooking coffee fields and Kealakakua Bay. Choice of salads, sandwiches, pizza, and great MacNut Pie for desert... and of course, Kona Coffee from a local producer

Best view! Great for lunch. Homemade breads and desserts (carrot cake and coconut pie especially) are fabulous. Very friendly staff.

The view was fantastic and the gecko’s feasting on jelly were cute. The breakfast, on the other hand left a lot to be desired. The mocha came less than lukewarm and had to be reheated in a microwave … it took over 10 minutes to be delivered back to our table … the excuse was “they were busy”. The cranberry... More

Food and service great. If you are lucky, you can get a table in the little room that hangs out over edge with spectacular view of ocean. Parking extremely limited and even dangerous on weekends. Best bet is to go on a weekday after breakfast rush. Mahi Mahi eggs Benedict 👍👍

It's an amazing little place that serves good breakfast and has stunning views over the coastal area. I had the BLT and it was delicious. Service was friendly and good. Just loved it!

Great coffee and pie, Magnificent view, it perches out over the side of the mountain, right on the highway. There isn't much parking available.

Nice little place in Capain Cook on the main Hwy. food is good, I had the daily omelette special, it was great, wife had bacon and eggs, the bacon was way too well done. Coffee was great. The view is spectacular, overlooking Kealakakua Bay and The Place of Refuge. This is a good stop if your heading to those places... More

nice place that certainly hides its charms from the road, a definite must do whilst on the island and passing - I wouldn't make a big drive to come only here though.
