Just finished the delicious crab quiche. It was even better than described here. They don't scrimp on the crab meat. Nice, laid back vibe with fast friendly service.

Thank 4Tide

We are so glad that you loved the blue crab quiche. The quiche is one of our signature items and we do want you to have crab in every bite. We are happy you enjoyed our service and laid back atmosphere! Thanks!

Since they opened up and touted the best breakfast sandwich on the island, I have been coming here for that great sandwich. Owners are great. And most of all they have a great view and very dog friendly.

We ate breakfast at Kona Joe's on a Sunday morning. Although the menu is limited, everything we ordered was very good...especially the house-made blue crab quiche. It was so full of crab meat the eggs were only a background flavor to enhance the crab. The Belgian waffles were light and crispy and served with fresh strawberries and blueberries and optional whipped cream...yummy!

Thanks for coming to Kona Joe's and we are so glad that you liked our blue crab quiche, it is one of our signature items. The Belgian waffle is also very popular, especially with the fresh berries. We actually have a fairly extensive menu when you "mix and match" items on our menu. All of our omelette sandwiches can be served as omelette plates with fruit. We also offer a traditional two eggs anystyle, meat and toast breakfast.

Amazing coffee and great eggs & ham, pancakes for breakfast. Get a table on outside porch or deck overlooking inlet and warm breeze, view and friendly staff will get you off to good day.

Thanks for coming in and glad you liked our breakfast, our view from the porch and the staff. We truly enjoy getting to visit with our customers. Want to point out that while we don't have pancakes we do serve a wonderful Belgian waffle with fresh berries and whip cream.

Solid little breakfast spot. Have some Kona coffee and a slice of fresh-made crab quiche for breakfast.

Glad that you liked our fresh made blue crab quiche and our Kona coffee. We always work to serve the best quality food and gourmet coffee drinks. We have added a couple of additional coffee drinks recently that have been very popular with our customers.
