Great little spot for great Kona coffee and great snacks. Ice cream is sold upstairs and the shaved ice was pretty good. They also sell some souvenirs at the store if you are interested and they have outside and indoor seating. Would definitely recommend this little gem in the town of Hawi.

If you are driving to the Pololu Valley Lookout, this is a great place to stop for a latte, a cappuccino or some lunch. They have outdoor seating facing the main street of this old, charming town. Their coffees were good, and the service quick and friendly.

Delicious build your own sandwiches! Not a lot of seating but we managed. Service was a tad slow as well , but we weren't in a hurry.

This small shop should stick to coffee and ice cream since they don't appear to have the staff or space to provide additional food

Stopped by because it was the only place open for breakfast. Coffee was okay. Lots of local people stopping by and being greeted by staff. Breakfast was average Nothing to shout about. Seemed like a lot of retirees coming here.

This is an awesome coffee shop located in Hawi Town. We visited several times during our stay. The coffee was awesome and the baristas knew our order on day two.
