“Friendly Staff and Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

When we first arrived for lunch, the line to place orders was quite long. Great surprise, though: the staff patiently takes each order and before you know it, a fresh and tasty treat is ready for you. I had a wrap and my friends had prepared- to -order sandwiches. Delicious. And the coffee was hot and good.
The staff was friendly and helpful, serving up directions and local information as they served up the food.
This is a "hole in the wall" coffee shop with indoor and outdoor tables and some souvenirs available, in Hawi town. Parking was a challenge but not impossible.

This place has fantastic ice cream and was the perfect stop on our way back from Pololu. The staff was also very friendly.

“Great kona coffee and free wifi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We enjoyed stopping by Kohala Coffee Mill every morning to sip freshly brewed Kona Coffee and the various breakfast specials. I even had a grass-fed cheese burger one morning before heading out to snorkel and it was tasty. Great value, food and service!

“Friendly Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We just stopped in here to get morning coffee. The lady making coffee was friendly and was happy to learn the name "Sludge Cup" for coffee with expresso. She had a bunch of other names. The coffee was hot and good!
