“Desert tease”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

After a long morning of exploring the Kona coastline, this little gem was perfect. Located at a perfect junction of 160 and 11, it was a much needed rejuvenation spot. Although lunch menu is small -approx 11 items- you will not be disappointed. Hubby had a hamburger ( was craving mainland food) and stated it was very tasty. I had the catch of the day - ahi. Tender and seasoned just right. Our waitress was delightful, prompt with a sense of humor . As she made her way around the tables with the desert patter, my mouth started to water. I must admit I left without testing the deserts, but the patron on either side ordered to go boxes of the pies and both parties did not make out of the restaurant with any- they ate it before they could leave. And just to tease me, the cute waitress had to walk by my table again with the platter at eye level. Very tempting. Also the second cheapest meal of our trip. Two persons under $30.

“First breakfast stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

We stopped here first morning on island. Food was great and coffee was fantastic. We both had the French toast made with sweet bread. Could not finish as portion was large. Don't even need syrup on it. The only thing that would have been better on it was coconut syrup which we had at other place. The waitress was great...she was so cute and helpful. We sat outside and just enjoyed the morning.

Great food, service and view. Oh and the geckos crawling on the rails are fun to watch. Fresh baked goods and the french toast is very tasty.

“Great combination of coffee, meals and people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

We spent a very good time with group of friends there. Everyone was happy and the owner makes sure by himself that you have all you need. By the way, this coffee house is so well located.
