So much better than your commercial chain of Coffee Houses

Ok, so was touring the north end of the Big Island and was turned on to this business by a friend of a friend who now resides here. It was suggested the place to go for Tropical Paradise Ice Cream. On the drive back from the end of the road, we stopped by the coffee house and it was just... read more

Our family stopped in here after zip lining. Everyone was happy with their coffee drinks and so nice to sit out on patio and relax. Great service! Their menu also looks delicious too! Definite stop for coffee if you're in the area.

So, Hawi is pronounced HaVee. Picked up the cutest shirt next door to Kohala Coffee Mill. It says Hawi nice day. Had an amazing cup of joe and sat on the patio outside. Directly next door to the coffee mill is another outside seating area with great mosaics of sea life. People are incredibly friendly. Love this little cute town.... More

We stopped to Hawi for coffee and a little shopping. The Coffee Mill is a busy place. There were ten of us which is a big crowd for most place. You line up and place your order at the counter and find a place to sit (inside or out) while you wait for your order. Our group's orders came out... More

Hawi is about a 30-40 minute drive from the Waikoloa resorts but it feels like a different world. If you're looking for a traditional Hawai'i tropical rainforest, Hawi is the closest you're going to get without driving to the Hilo side. Kohala Coffee Mill possibly has the most reasonable prices on the entire island. Not a lot of seating but... More

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 best I've... 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.
