“Without a doubt a great breakfast stop!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We have been having breakfast at Lava Java for 10 plus years and they are wonderful. We always order a breakfast wrap which is no longer on the menu (for at least 4 years) and they always make it for us. The girls that wait the tables are gracious and sweet and will do whatever takes to make sure your order is right. I would suggest getting there early as they fill up quick.

Thanks for always making us feel welcome.... Breakfast wrap with eggs, potatoes, bacon, and jalapenos. Sriracha too!

“Great New Year's Dinner”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Island Lava Java was a great place to have New Year's Dinner & people watch everyone who walked by. The food was great as was the staff. This is one of our most favorite places to eat & watch the sunset on the Kona side of the big island.
