“Great Place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Dave's is awesome. We went just about every morning for breakfast. Not only does the food and prices make this place, Malcolm is awesome. It's definitely a laid back place, don't expect all the hoopla and bells and whistles. Expect great food, great prices and incredible service in a super friendly environment!!!!!! Malcolm we'll see you next year!!!!

“Great value, great breakfast, sweet people with good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We ate breakfast here to escape the crazy prices at our resort. We ordered pancakes, sweetbread French toast and 3 eggs and bacon plus a coffee and bottled water for under $15. Not only was it a great value but it was yummy, extremely fast and the people are so sweet and welcoming. It's a local, rustic, dive like place. You wouldn't expect what you get if you just drove by it but it's definitely worth a stop.

“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We stayed just down the road at Paniolo Greens so we stopped at Dave's for both a lunch and a breakfast which is served all day (but they close at 4:00). The shack is across the main road from Waikoloa Highlands Center so if you are wandering around the shopping area you won't find it there. This place is a dive with some really good food at great prices. I had fish tacos ($7) for the first time and loved them. My husband had loco moco ($8) which he also really liked. I got a giant brownie for the road which was moist and was only $2.25. Their macaroni/tuna salad was my favorite on the island. For breakfast we got the sweetbread french toast ($6) and the special of the day which was eggs benedict. Those were both very good as well. If you want a very good meal without breaking the bank this is your place. Oh, and the owner of this place is the definition of Aloha Spirit.

“The reviews are right!!!”

This is a great find on the Big Island. Chicken Katsu was great and not greasy. Coffee was good and the price was cheap. It's a shack. Laid back fun place to stop and the service was excellent. Will be back sometime.
