We came here with a couple local friends and had a great lunch an enjoyed the view in spite of the rain. the help is no overly friendly, but the food is good and the ambiance worth the drive.

My 2nd time back to the Coffee Shack was even better than the first. They have added a second dining area to the back plus the under growth has been cut back to provide a spectacular open air view of the Kealakekua Bay below. Upon arriving the parking can be difficult (if full go a couple more hundred yards down the road is another space for maybe 4 more cars)

My service was fast and friendly w/ coffee at my table in just minutes even though they were pretty busy. I ordered their ample French toast served quickly w/ Luau bread (really very good) plus a side of bacon (seemed like the whole side of a pig). My friend says the Rueben sandwich is to die for so having lunch there should be just as fun. Apart from the difficult parking the men‘s room was clean but looked like the painter and plumber had forgot to finish the remodel job (oh well gives me something to complain about).

This is a really good spot to have breakfast on your way to Volcano or down to Painted Church or Honaunau (Place of Refuge) or Two Step snorkeling….maybe about 2 miles south of Manago Hotel in Captain Cook the Coffee Shack will be on your right (where all the cars are parked). You could stop at Mc‘D‘s along the way and have a so/so breakfast for 6 bucks or a really great bucks for around 12 bucks.

We ate here at the recommendation of the concierge at our resort, once for lunch and once for breakfast. Plenty of food prepared with an island flair. The breads were especially remarkable.

If you are in Kona and get tired of eating tourist food and want something that tastes more homemade, the Coffee Shack is the place to go. It takes a bit to get to down Highway 11, but it's worth it. I would also highly recommend the coconut cream pie.

Stopped here on our way to Capt Cook for some sandwiches to go. We also had a delicious brownie. Beautiful views right from the parking area. The service was warm and friendly and the sandwiches were great.
