Breakfast and lunch choices are always fresh and excellent. Service is very good. Try going at an "off" time, but remember they close early in the day. Watch for traffic when you park; sit by the railing for a knock out view on clear days!...More

The cheescake was memorable, the coffee and the banana bread were amazing. The view of the ocean and the rainforest just under us made our brunch just an impressive moment we will never forget. Thank you to all the staff.

We had an early breakfast, French toast made with their homemade bread, eggs and espresso with Kona coffee all overlooking the Kealakekua Bay. Friendly staff with a sense of humor. Don't miss it!

Really delicious fare. We stopped here several times. The view is terrific and the location is convenient if you are coming or going from southern beaches to Kailua-Kona.

A great local joint. Having 100% Kona coffee over looking the great view is fantastic. I had an awesome homemade cranberry-macadamia nuts scorn! It's not a big place. And was packed by the time we left.
