their dinner menu is pretty well-rounded and tasty. Portions were adequate. The espresso ranged from excellent to very good. Their baristas have a range of experience...Overall, a must stop for morning espresso in the area!

Ate breakfast here on way to explore island. Food good. Small place. Outside eating area not particularly well cleaned(lots of bird droppings). 6 of us ate quickly and for around 90$. Good service. Ample servings could easily be split.

Unfortunately our trip into Kona was detoured because of highway closure so we headed north. Found this place for breakfast. Quaint little place but good food.

Well since we couldn't traveldown to our parasail tour due to a road closure we decided to take a side trip for breakfast. Great little shop in the Waikoloa Village area, java chip frapuccino was delicious and the Loco Moco Breakfast was great. Well since the road closure is still in effect I guess we travel North.. 🙄

This was a good coffee break. Staff were friendly, coffee was good (got a decaf iced macadamia nut coffee), and it was convenient. I'd go back if I loved here!

Island Lava Java offers an affordable breakfast away from the resorts. They have a nice selection of breakfast options, we particularly liked the macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup. The service is friendly and fast.

Island Lava Java is an OK neighborhood locale for coffee. Visited this location a couple of times in the late afternoon, yet always the same. Good coffee and adequate service; not necessarily appealing for lunch or dinner. Service staff friendly. Would make a suggestion for management to review cleanliness and cleanup policies. Other locations in the vicinity have as good... More

Staying at Paniola Greens and with a picky son our options were limited. We decided to pick something up from Subway but noticed this place had pizza which our son had and thoroughly enjoyed. I had the prime rib sandwich and my wife had fish tacos. The place was so good that we came back again for breakfast later that... More
