Googled to try to find a place to pick up some breakfast muffins and came across Buns in the sun. It was located right down the street from the Marriott Courtyard. Stopped by and picked up some fruit scones and Mango Muffins. Both were really really good. Their breakfast menu was good also and went back a few days later for a quick breakfast before driving to Hilo. They serve breakfast, deli sandwiches & salads, along with a variety of grilled sandwiches. The coffee was really good also. Unfortunately, the restaurant closed in early Feb, but moved to a different location. You would have to google the restaurant to get the new address.

We loved this place on our last trip to Kona so were looking forward to returning. We got the Kahlua breakfast plate - it was ok, not as good on our previous trip and price much increased - almost $10 seemed a bit steep.

We ate here three times during our five day trip to Kona. Breakfast is basic but delish. They have fresh pastries, omelets, breakfast sandwiches and great coffee. Everything appeared to be made there and fresh. Lunch was also great. Good place for a sandwich and a break from the sun. The prices are very reasonable and the staff super nice.

Our Kailani tour took us by Buns in the sun to pick up lunch for our volcano tour. Not only were there so many goodies to choose from, the lunch was delicious at the mana kea rest stop.

While the food tasted good, we were appalled at the lack of care in its preparation. As we watched one of the food preparers, who was wearing gloves, hitched up the zipper fly on her pants, left the counter to take a phone call with hands on the receiver, adjusted her hair, and moved the trash can. She apparently doesn't know that gloves aren't to protect her but are meant to protect the food (i.e. the customer) from outside influences like germs on clothing and trash baskets.
