Stopped in after our cattle drive experience for a bit of caffeine before driving back to Kona. The counter staff was friendly and the coffee divine! The coconut macaroons were super delicious!!!!!

Similar to other coffee producing regions it's fairly hard to find a decent cup on Hawaii island. Waimea Coffee is the difference. Even though the roasts are a little dark for my taste the baristas are excellent and I always get a good cup (cortado...More

No flavored lattes here, but also no need. The coffee is quite good and the baristas pay attention to preparation. Oh, and the chocolate-dipped macaroon is made with coconut chips and is deadly wonderful!

I agree with the sign near their register that says something like 'Boycott Corporate Coffee.' This little gem always has a line, but be patient. It's worth it. Staff is wonderful, great coffee, great little place.

Excellent selection of coffee from the Islands. Baked goods are exceptional with a broad spectrum of choices. A great place to start a day of adventures on the Big Island. The staff is attentive and responsive.

This place is certainly worth the visit. Don't call it a hipster coffee joint, but this is not your corner Starbucks either. Its less pretentious! Located in Parker Square, this is a small venue with limited seating. Pop in for a cup, maybe buy some...More

Pleasant setting to drink a cup of coffee with a bit of a sweet thing, the seating is limited, but the wait is usually not too long. The wait for sandwich, wraps etc.is a little too long. They close early.

Food: We use the freshest ingredients available, in most cases, farmed right here on the big island. We have an herb garden out back which we use to make all of our own homemade soups and sauces. We shop at the local farmers markets for many ingredients. We care about what goes into our bodies and our community! This means we don't believe in microwaves, GMO foods, or artificial flavorings. We do believe in organic, local, and gluten free alternatives. We believe that fresh foods are better for all of us. All produce and baked goods are sourced locally! Come check us out :) Coffee and Tea: We have friendly, knowledgeable baristas here to craft you a delicious beverage. We use cold brewed coffee as our iced coffee. We feature our islands best coffees, available for personal pour overs and french presses. We also have 100% organic and local teas available for those who do not like coffee :)
