KAYAS is amazing, delicious coffee and great choice of many vegan / vegetarian and even gluten free options. We went there every day we stayed in Kona. I can recommend the black bean burger with the homemade focaccia bread. Finally some great bread in America!...More

Stopped on the way for airport to volcano, the iced almond milk coffee I had was the best ever....and was a never ending coffee because the ice cubes were made from coffee. Truly delicious, as was the gluten free scone. Highly recommend!

A somewhat unexpected setting for a stellar café with just great food, and coffee served on real plates unlike the excess packaging elsewhere in Hawaii. Lovely, fresh eggs on bagels with sprouts and avocado. We also shared a delicious peanut butter brownie and lemon flavoured...More

Kaya’s is located a short drive south of Kona and well worth stopping at whenever you’re headed to the lower part of the Big Island... Their special Kona coffee drinks are super tasty, and they also offer a big selection of wonderfully prepared food items...More

This was the first coffee shop we stumbled upon in Kona, and after trying several others, this was our favorite! Perfect to stop for an iced coffee on a hot Hawaiian day! I recommend the lavender mocha!

This is a great place to stop off at if heading to Captain Cook or south Kona areas. They have fresh and natural foods, good veggie options, and coffee drinks. Also there are some local crafts for sale, good for unique gifts.
