Hip, local, great coffee, good food, a bit of attitude, but worth it. We usually have coffee drinks and muffins, but occasionally spring for a full breakfast. Very good, pricy, food.

The staff aren’t friendly and the drinks aren’t good - but, I came back here twice for the large amount of covered open air seating. They allowed us to spread out and paint and take over their board room that overlooked the ocean for hours....More

So, so meal. The Bread Pudding French Toast served lukewarm not hot. Greeter was not very cheerful, server friendly and kept coffee full. View is fantastic, but not worth the cost for so so food.

Was able to easily make a breakfast reservation for a large party, which was convenient. We parked in the garage under the restaurant. Service was a little slow, but the setting on the water was so nice we hardly noticed. I had the hamakua eggs,...More
