My wife and I stopped here for coffee one morning. Their coffee is 100% Kona and very good, but unfortunately they were out of cream due to a local food strike. The coffee here was a bit expensive. All of their coffee is grown, processed, and roasted on the owners' farm. Kona coffee is naturally less bitter and lower in... More

Right in the middle of town with sidewalk seating. Great place to enjoy morning coffee and a breakfast sandwich.

We had to wait 15 mins for our breakfast at Basik Cafe so wandered up here for a coffee. AUSTRALIANS this is where to get your coffee. The closest to our coffee I have found. The service was super friendly. We didn't eat here but I would definitely come back if we had time! Thanks to the girls behind the... More

We like to frequent this place because of the good coffee, however the service is not very well organized resulting in long waiting times. That really is a pity for a place like this! Even though most people that visit will be on a holiday, I suppose nobody wants to wait for a cup of coffee for almost half an... More

This is my favorite coffee place. I love mochas and they make the best, very flavorful and lots of foam. My husband likes the hand poured extra fancy.

Nice place to relax and look out over the ocean. Coffee seems weak but good. Opens early. I would recommend this coffee shop

This cozy, relaxing shop has a great view and is tucked neatly into a corner. The shop is clean and orderly maintaining a laid back beach vibe all the while. The shop serves the coffee from their farm. The espresso is 100% Kona coffee from their farm, which has been hard to find. The pineapple smoothie, made from fresh pineapple... More

Very good coffee in a cozy coffee shop right across the bay. Sip your Pele Ohana on the deck, adjacent to the art gallery next door and enjoy the beautiful ocean scenery directly in front of you. Even though it's located in the main Kailua-Kona tourist area, we never felt crowded or hurried. This became an almost daily ritual during... More

I am local and this is one of my favorite places to relax with a great cup of coffee, watch the ocean and read a book. It's more peaceful than the other local coffee shops on Ali'i drive, and there is adequate shade on those hot days. I usually just get coffee, but have also enjoyed their breakfast croissant sandwiches.
