“Fabulous food and great value”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate lunch here twice, and it was excellent both times. The food is fresh and delicious, and good value. Lots of choices for vegetarians, and great coffee too. Staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

“Nice breakfast!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We ended up eating here twice for breakfast during out week-long stay in Kona. We enjoyed the burritos as well as the omelets and the delicious croissant sandwiches! You can also get some cookies to go on the way to the beach! Perfect snack, tasty too! I would definitely recommend if you are in the area!

“Ideal for a quick fair priced lunch”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We had a lunch here twice during our visit on the Big Island. The menu covers most peoples tastes if not extensive. There is seating in and outside and although not vast most of the trade appeared to be of the passing variety so getting a table was not a problem.
The pricing of the food on offer was very reasonable and the food we had was of good quality. The service was fast and friendly and for those with a sweet tooth there is a large selection of cakes and cookies on offer.
This is not a place for those who wish to take a leisurely lunch but more of the business variety for those people with limited time. I always judge a place to see if the locals use it and they definitely use Buns in the Sun.

“Good and quick breakfast”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

The food here is good and they have fresh baked goods.
I had a bagel sandwich that was fresh and tasty.
You order at the counter and then wait for your name to be called.
There are several tables inside and several outside.
The Kahlua pig plate is very good, too.
