Quality food great location

This little cafe was a great discovery in the cute little township of Hawi. We had delicious smoothies, quesadillas and bagels. We then ventured upstairs for delicious fudge. Lovely location to eat in or outside.

Not only does this place offer great snacks and food, it serves Kona coffee; a great way to kick start the day.

Having read the reviews I was expecting a larger 'town centre' but this was just a one-horse town but none the worse for that! A few stores but friendly service. Most were closed on the Monday we visited, and the ones that were open were closed by 5pm. Worth a visit to experience the old charm of the area.

We stopped here about five days ago and had a cup of coffee. Both my wife and I and our two daughters thought it was excellent. We came back again today for another cup of coffee before hiking to the Pololu Valley. There is no doubt having drank coffee from many of the coffee shops all across this beautiful island... More

A really nice stop for coffee and TERRIFIC Tropical Dreams Macadamia Nut Ice Cream in the old sugar cane town of Hawi in North Kohala. A must stop for us every year for those two reasons. Nice ambiance, nice people, GREAT ICE CREAM!

Not only is their coffee great, but they have yummy pastries and a limited breakfast menu. And, if you stop by in the afternoon, try them for ice cream. Definitely lots of local charm here!

Nice place to stop and get some food and drink after hiking Pololu Valley. Sit back, drink some coffee and enjoy great sandwiches.

Busy place with all the coffee drinks and goodies you would want. Other food as well. You can do a little souvenir shopping while you wait for your order. Some seating outside, pleasant being in the midst of Hawi and watching the scene. Stopped by several times in my week there.

We stopped by here in the afternoon for some coffee and people watching in Hawi. It was a nice place to stop and sit for a bit. You should head upstairs for the Fudge Factory. We got the Amaretto and Kohola Lime flavors. The lime was really yummy.
