We stopped at the Kohala Coffee Mill twice going past Hawi to and from Pololu one day. First we had coffee and a chocolate croissant. The coffee was good, the croissant was not (we've had them in Europe after all). The croissant was more of a danish; the chocolate seemed like that from a Hershey's squeeze bottle. On the way...

Consistently good coffee and friendly service. Open early enough for the early bird too, which is nice.

This coffee shop is a must stop if you like your latte. Has excellent ice cream, and the sandwiches are good, too.

We have mostly gone here for coffee or ice cream, both of which are stellar. The service is friendly and it's nice to be able to sit out front and watch Hawi go by.

I enjoyed an excellent Kona au Lait and checked out the art displays on the second floor. i had a perfectly wonderful young... More

We could not start a morning of our trip without a visit toe Kohala Coffee. The coffee was delicious, the staff was friendly and quick, and the atmosphere is true relaxed Hawaii. We also enjoyed their food options and loved sitting out on the sidewalk to drink our coffee and eat as a relaxing start to our day.

We visited this place several times for the ice cream, which is really, really good. Our only complaint is that you never know what kind they will have. The passion fruit sorbet is to die for but they only had it once during our many visits.

The coffee was great, the veggie sandwich was outstanding, our first taste of shaved ice (mango + strawberry) was a really treat and too top it all off, we took several... More
