We always eat here for breakfast with excellent views, service and food. Now there is table service it make this place for breakfast even easier to chill and enjoy the ocean watching for dauphins slashing in the bay. The Big Island special is recommended for those who are hungry. Kona coffee is served along with fresh orange juice.

My husband and I both agree that this was one of the best meals we had on the island. I have to say it was my favorite. The fish was cooked to perfection, and we ended up splitting our food because everything was soooo good. The view is incredible, ambiance is terrific and the entertainment was delightful. The entire experience was lovely.

the banana mac nut waffles weren't that great. i make better waffles at home. we only came here because i read about it from this site and even on chowhound.com. i don't know if there are better alternatives in the area at the same price range as we didn't get to try another breakfast place. but if i were to pick the best breakfast place on the whole island, that would be Ken's House of Pancakes in Hilo.

We read so much about Lava Java we just had to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. I gave the fish tacos a try and they were delicious! There was some live music and it was fun watching people walk by. This is a great place to relax, eat some great food (that isn't horribly expensive) and have a nice evening,

We stopped for a coffee and lunch. The fish sandwich and coffee were very good. They have free wi-fi. To get to the sketchy bathroom you walk through the kitchen.
