Kona Coffee AND Homemade Ice Cream?!?!

You must, must, must visit here. Unless you don't like awesome coffee and ice cream. First off, I love coffee. And they not only have a full coffee bar for a great afternoon pick me up, but they have Kona coffee to go. I can attest that some of the coffee they have is easily some of the... read more

My husband had the coffee and we both had a scoop of the macadamia ice cream. He thought the coffee was okay not spectacular, but we both really liked the ice cream. We had bought this book "Big Island Revealed" and they had recommended places to go for Tropical Dreams Ice cream. We like the author liberally sampled ice cream... More

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.
