For coffee snobs (like me) who are spoilt for choice with an abundance of good coffee down here in Melbourne, finding a good coffee shop in Kona (or Hawaiian Islands in general) is difficult- sorry...but true. This little shop is not well marked, but when you find it, you will be happy you found it. My weapon of choice was... More

The coffee was great and the breakfast was excellent! We enjoyed sitting out on the patio. The service can't be beat! We stayed at Sea Village and enjoyed breakfast here on several occasions.

We were staying at Sea Village and didn't even know this place was here for the first few days as we were always heading into Kona. After walking around the resort, we saw people carrying coffee cups from somewhere and went to look - and were so glad we did! The staff are very nice and helpful to answer any... More

I just love Espresso and these guys know how to make it right. Seems like a simple thing, some coffee, a little steam, what could go wrong. They nail it. We had the Monte Cristo, Ham/Egg/Cheese Bagel and a Crescent Breakfast Sandwich. Staff was so nice.

First time to the Big Island. Have visited 2x. Great coffee and food. Had their French toast and breakfast croissant. Both tasty.

The "Loco" something smoothie my wife only gave me a taste of was great...so great she didn't share much. The cafe mochas are excellent. The coffee holds its own over the chocolate.

We headed to Green Flash Coffee after reading many favourable reviews of the place, as we were looking for a solid coffee place during our stay on the Big Island. I really want to give this place five stars (the coffee and smoothies were incredible), but I just can't bring myself to do it after what happened. When we showed... More

I can only speak to the coffee, because that's all I've had there. The coffee was excellent, definitely the Kona coffee is amazing, but there only have that in black drip coffee, they use a mixture of other beans for all their espresso drinks, which is a little disappointing. The service is lovely, those who work there are very nice,... More

I stayed at a condo two blocks away and ended up eating breakfast here every day while I was in Kona. Loved the lattes and the smoothies. Also had breakfast sandwiches and those were great. It's a small place but the line moves pretty quick (if there is a line). I wish there was a place like this near my... More

My wife and I gone here twice for iced coffee drinks during our week vacation. Both times we enjoyed a large iced Haupia. It is DELICIOUS! Highly recommended! Also the staff are very friendly and appreciative of your business.
