This cozy, relaxing shop has a great view and is tucked neatly into a corner.
The shop is clean and orderly maintaining a laid back beach vibe all the while.
The shop serves the coffee from their farm.
The espresso is 100% Kona coffee from their farm, which has been hard to find.
The pineapple smoothie, made from fresh pineapple and orange juice is fantastic and refreshing.

I look forward to visiting when in Kona.

Very good coffee in a cozy coffee shop right across the bay. Sip your Pele Ohana on the deck, adjacent to the art gallery next door and enjoy the beautiful ocean scenery directly in front of you. Even though it's located in the main Kailua-Kona tourist area, we never felt crowded or hurried. This became an almost daily ritual during our vacation for my partner, who normally doesn't even drink coffee, yet he loved the Pele Ohana blend (with his own sweetner fixins') so we indulged in a cup (sometimes two) every day.

I am local and this is one of my favorite places to relax with a great cup of coffee, watch the ocean and read a book. It's more peaceful than the other local coffee shops on Ali'i drive, and there is adequate shade on those hot days. I usually just get coffee, but have also enjoyed their breakfast croissant sandwiches.

After having a very unsatisfying breakfast experience the morning before we opted for a more casual experience. The coffee was 10x better, at half the price. The service was efficient and friendly and the bagel sanwiches were served hot. All for less than $20. What more do you need in paradise. We came back twice.
