Often live music playing here which's great, along with regular dolphin sightings from your table make this a great spot. Loved the papaya/museli breakfast and friendly staff.

We ate here twice. You can get real Kona coffee here, and it was delicious. The staff were all very nice. My husband had the coconut banana pancakes and they were amazing (he shared 1 bite with me) and I had the typical egg whites and bacon. All delicious!! Next time I want to try to granola that comes served in a Papaya. That just looked amazing!

We went here before leaving the big island. We went for breakfast and we did have a short wait, but the servers were quick and efficient. My husband had the luau omelet and loved it. I had the eggs and portuguese sausage, so delicious! My daughter had the keiki chocolate chip pancakes and practically licked the plate. We loved sitting on the patio, under an umbrella, watching the waves crash across the street. The kona coffee tasted delicious and everything was fresh. They definitely know how to prepare excellent food and to serve it efficiently with a smile added to it. Highly recommend!

One of our favourite locations in Kailua-Kona. We were there 4 times this past trip for various breakfast, lunch and dinner; different days of course :-p

Can't go wrong with the fresh catch and salad greens and dressing always have a good balance.

Ate here 3 times during our week in Kona. High quality, tasty food that is made on site. Pizza, salads, breakfast items were all delicious. Enjoyed the live music and of course the beautiful view.
