We ate breakfast twice and dinner once. Great coffee, great food, friendly and attentive service (thanks Cheryl!). The half papaya filled with yogurt and granola is wonderful.

We visited Lava Java on a whim while in Waikoloa Village. Good choice as they are experts with their sauces and toppings. We had fish tacos and pizza. We observed later that they also catered a tour we did with Hawaii Forest and Trail tours....More

I had breakfast in this Bistro Twice. They have great food and reasonable prices. They are located in the Waikoloa Village. They also have a Hawaiian Musician playing as you eat breakfast.

We stopped here for breakfast before a day of sight seeing. A great menu with generous portion size. Prices are OK.
