Great chef, relaxing garden setting

We ate here three times in 4 days. Great brunch - one of the best eggs Benny. Frittata was beautifully fluffy. French toast also good. Nice to have freshly squeezed OJ on offer. Prices good value (12-18 for most I think). For dinner, we both enjoyed a roast chicken special. Glazed with balsamic... read more

This is a beautiful place. It has a great menu. All of the food is fresh. This was our first stop after landing in Kona. It helped us get in the feeling of being on a tropical island.

Nice attractive outdoor setting. Food good, but not great. Not quite up to what the chef is aspiring towards. Overpriced.

What could be better than enjoying a Brunch in a covered garden, especially when the food and service is outstanding? They successfully managed to combine breakfast and lunch items in developing an interesting menu. I had roasted pork loin under two over easy fried eggs accompanied by breakfast potatoes and asparagus. Our server Daniel was attentive and informative. A definite... More

It's not in the downtown area, but in Holualoa, about 15 minutes tops from Kailua town. located in a cute at village, with kona, coffee surrounding. Parking is limited, but local to go to the back of the restaurant and they have s parking structure there so you can enter in back. Take road front of Holualoa Lovin, Art gallery.... More

This restaurant you would drive by and not stop if you didn't know what was waiting for you behind the hedge line. Outdoor but covered with white twinkle lights. All the food is locally sourced and to die for. We have been there several times and tried different dishes each time all mouth watering. Bring a jacket gets chilly after... More

Be prepared for perhaps a 15 minute drive from town and take your appetite. My wife and I went there for a late breakfast. The old building caused us to hesitate for a moment, but we decided to try it anyway. Sure glad we did. The atmosphere was rather old style, very comfortable and had a clam about it. They... More

I've had lunch here two times recently and went for dinner with two friends a couple of nights ago. The place has a very nice ambience - it is an out door place in the shade of some large trees. Lunch was good enough that we were encouraged to return for dinner. Not a good experience. All three of us... More

The best and only place around to get coffee at 6:30 in the morning. The staff is a real treat so early in the day, the food looks tasty though I didn't eat, and there are island gifts scattered throughout to feed the early morning shopping bug.
