Great breakfast at both locations Waikoloa Village and Kailua Kona. The cafe style and local music adds to the ambiance not to mention waffles fruits and eggs Benedict. The Kailua Kona location is right across the ocean with fantastic views. Highly recommend

Excellent place for breakfast! It was a little tricky to find as it's tucked in a shopping area. Great breakfast options - fresh and delicious. Much better than the resort options - better food and much more affordable. Fish benedict, waffles, island style pancakes. And...More
