Their burger is pretty good, fries a little dry and tasteless but good service and location

One tipe we wish we'd known before we went: they do not have a wine list. You can bring your own whatever (beer, wine) and they will give you glasses and a wine bottle opener, no corkage fee. My husband had to run down the street to get some wine after he ordered.

The food is solidly good with generous portions. We had two different servers helping us, and one was much better than the other. Sitting outside is fun for people watching. If I were to return to the Big Island I'd prefer to try lunch or breakfast here.

Great location for a view of the water and people watching. Friendly service. Great pastries. A must: the Island Waffles (buttermilk waffles with sliced bananas, macadamia nuts and coconut syrup). YUM!

Oh the Price is right! We had Sunday Brunch here at Lava Java and it rocked. Do the Eggs Benedict and your tummy will be in love. If your into people watching, here you'll see every walk of life strolling through Kona. Awesome views and they make a great java as well. Have some patients and you'll agree, The Price Is Right for the quality tasting food! We ate here twice verses eating at our resort, The Four Seasons.
