“New restaurant/lounge at the 'A' beach”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Probably a better place for lunch/drinks than in the evening -- when it is very crowded. Food was good, drinks were good as well.

“the Best Breakfast of our trip”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We happened upon this place on a day we rented a car to tour the island. We had a great breakfast. We both ordered the oatmeal, with bananas and yogurt. It was so good! We also enjoyed the coffee.

“Tasty food, a good option when in Waikoloa Village”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This restaurant is in Waikoloa Village (not at the beach resort area), so it is a casual handy place to eat if you are in the village and don't want to drive. The food, when a careful cook is on duty, is yummy and generous. Prices are not cheap, but still affordable ($10 sandwiches). The only ongoing problem with this restaurant is that the quality of what is presented is not consistent. Usually the food is very good, but if a haphazard cook is on duty, it is guesswork what you might get served. My advice, go there and plan on enjoying the tasty food, and if served less quality than you'd expect, send it back to be "corrected". Definitely worth a visit, and also orders-to-go.

“One of the few restaurants in Waikola and its good”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We had several dinners there and enjoyed very much. Its a casual coffee shop/bakery with only a few indoor tables and several outoors; but good food and nice staff.
