“This is a fantastic little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

This place is so quaint. The staff are super friendly and they have delicious breakfast croissants and 100% kona coffee. Prices are reasonable and highly recommend this cute gem.

“Great ice cream, interesting locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Stopped on our way back from Pololu Beach for some ice cream. The macadamia nut ice cream is tasty. Great treat after hiking up that hill from the black sand beach.

Interesting locals drinking kava at the next door store.

“Best. Ice Cream. EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I'll be honest, I never even looked at the coffee or sandwiches that this place had to offer. I was told that they had the best ice cream, and YES, did they ever!! It was mid-afternoon, perfect time for a lil' snack, and I said YES to their Kona Coffee ice cream in a heartbeat. Simply sinfully delicious in a little cake cone. Hubby had their Macnut flavor, and while he paid I sampled his, too. Equally delicious. The brand is Tropical Dreams, which is made there on the island can be found at other locations, but somehow the sweet little town of Hawi made it even more delicious. Sit out front, lazily licking your way to heaven as you watch locals out and about, and few cars traveling the highway. Not cheap, but well worth it!

Heaven!

“unbeatable coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

A bit of a dive in the middle of Hawi, but probably the best coffee I've ever had. I had the 12 oz latte, and requested four shots of espresso. The cheerful hawaiian barista said that might be a little 'over the top' when I asked if she thought it would be too strong. Fortunately for me, she was wrong, it was perfect.
We had breakfast sandwiches that were tasty and prepared fresh to order. A bit pricey, like everything in Hawaii, but a truly memorable latte.
