Visited here based on a recommendation from our guide book to try the ice cream. Its creamy and flavourful. I got the ginger flavour which didn't disappoint! Skip the coffee (it's pretty average).

Had lunch, coffee, and ice cream. Everything was great, the prices were reasonable, and the service was great.

This is a good place to have lunch if you're driving around the northern tip of the Big Island. The servers are friendly and helpful. The food is good, especially the salads and the ice cream. Be advised that the bathroom is located in the shop next door.

Best place in Kohala for a great cup of coffee and food. The selections for food is a little limited but really nicely done!

Stopped in to this quaint place and enjoyed a yummy sandwich and delicious ice cream. No bathroom or glass of water though.

Great little spot for great Kona coffee and great snacks. Ice cream is sold upstairs and the shaved ice was pretty good. They also sell some souvenirs at the store if you are interested and they have outside and indoor seating. Would definitely recommend this little gem in the town of Hawi.

If you are driving to the Pololu Valley Lookout, this is a great place to stop for a latte, a cappuccino or some lunch. They have outdoor seating facing the main street of this old, charming town. Their coffees were good, and the service quick and friendly.

Delicious build your own sandwiches! Not a lot of seating but we managed. Service was a tad slow as well , but we weren't in a hurry.

This small shop should stick to coffee and ice cream since they don't appear to have the staff or space to provide additional food

Stopped by because it was the only place open for breakfast. Coffee was okay. Lots of local people stopping by and being greeted by staff. Breakfast was average Nothing to shout about. Seemed like a lot of retirees coming here.
