Great Place for Breakfast--On the Beach

This is a great place to have coffee and breakfast--right on the beach. Food is OK, but the views are unbeatable.

Owned by the same owners as Lava Lava, we stopped here before heading to the airport. Their grass fed burger was amazing!

We grab lunch while we were off our Ship at Kona. So glad we ate here. The burgers were great and really loved their Volcano Potato Chips. They had gluten free buns so it made it possible for everyone to have a great meal. The view of the ocean is great.

Enjoyed dinner here a few nights ago and it was a great experience. Fish tacos are yummy and they have music and hula dancers on the regular

This place is right on the beach, you get the breeze and see the waves from their outdoor deck. The food was really great, had fresh seafood entrees and it was tops. The staff was very attentive and took care of everything.

This is the best place in Kona for a beautiful, relaxed setting listening to great music. The food is very eclectic, lots of choices, and served in unique bamboo steam baskets. It is right on the bay, you can take off your shoes and sink your toes in the sand! If you're there for sunset, all the better.

Great view and often good entertainment at night. You can put your toes in the sand. Owner appears to have a bit of attitude.

We loved Huggos!! Sand in your toes, gorgeous view (it even bucketed down rain while we were there!) And the live music was phenomenal. We liked our drinks and wait staff was awesome!

Having not eaten at Huggo's in years we had out of town guests that really wanted to dine here. We were so glad we did! The location has always been fantastic but the food preparation and quality were always below par. This recent visit 8/ 12/15, was outstanding! The service was friendly, professional yet island casual. It was the food... More
