We were staying in the Village for a week so make a few trips over to Island Lava Java for lunch and/or dinner. We tried two pizzas, the Veggie and the Shrimp Pizza. If you like goat cheese, recommend the Veggie, it was tasty. Also tried their Sunrise Burger. Delicious! The Greek Salad..a lot to eat but difficult to manage as it would be best mixed up but it comes with all the ingredients arranged in their own place, not integrated in the salad and the plate is so full that you can't really mix things up much. The Caesar Salad was a dissapointment...boring endive with barely any dressing. I have read other reviews where service was lacking...yes..we experienced that too but cut to the chase and just went to the counter and ordered. We thought the prices were worth the imperfection and therefore recommend it as a place to grab a quick lunch or dinner. Their breakfast is supposed to be the busy time, we didn't make it for breakfast.

Food was great. Service was wonderful. We sat outside and there was a couple guys playing music. Great for kids that can't sit still, my kids went on walks around the complex that had fountains and ponds.

Great place for brunch, have been back several times as the food is fantastic and great value for money. Would definitely recommend the Paniola Stack - it was delicious, as is the coffee!

If you are staying at the Hilton, Marriott or the condos down at Waikoloa Beach, you'll want to drive the 7 miles up to Island Lava Java Waikoloa (not to be confused with the Island Lava Java - same company - down the road 30+ miles in Kona) for breakfast. So good, great selections, fantastic prices, wonderful coffee, really good service. Mostly outdoor sitting with a few bothersome birds looking for your leftovers. Had lunch once as a take out, kind of hard to eat in the car on the run.... suggest you go next door to the Subway if you need to take your lunch on the go.
