We headed to Green Flash Coffee after reading many favourable reviews of the place, as we were looking for a solid coffee place during our stay on the Big Island. I really want to give this place five stars (the coffee and smoothies were incredible), but I just can't bring myself to do it after what happened. When we showed... More

I can only speak to the coffee, because that's all I've had there. The coffee was excellent, definitely the Kona coffee is amazing, but there only have that in black drip coffee, they use a mixture of other beans for all their espresso drinks, which is a little disappointing. The service is lovely, those who work there are very nice,... More

I stayed at a condo two blocks away and ended up eating breakfast here every day while I was in Kona. Loved the lattes and the smoothies. Also had breakfast sandwiches and those were great. It's a small place but the line moves pretty quick (if there is a line). I wish there was a place like this near my... More

My wife and I gone here twice for iced coffee drinks during our week vacation. Both times we enjoyed a large iced Haupia. It is DELICIOUS! Highly recommended! Also the staff are very friendly and appreciative of your business.

Located about 3 km from downtown Kailua, The Green Flash is a little out of the way. However if you are out for a hike, head south on Ali'i Drive and look for this little cafe, you'll be surprised! Our daughter rated the kombucha quite highly, we, being slightly less adventurous, enjoyed the local coffee. Hot snacks are prepared fresh... More

This is a small place with limited seating, but there's usually a line for breakfast. We ordered takeout one morning--oatmeal and Punalu'u Sweetbread French Toast. Then we went back 2 more times and tried the breakfast bagel. The steel ground oats, flax seed, raisin, and milk oatmeal was the winner in our family! Try it!

Great espresso, good kombucha on tap, food looks fine (did not eat), handy for hotels south of Kailua central.

Boutique coffee shop, that also serves smoothies and breakfast. We frequented this place when we were in Kona. I loved the variety of smoothies (especially the Green Flash). My husband thought it was one of the best coffees he had on the trip.

The green flash blended coffee is light and fruity. They also carry 100% Kona coffee if you prefer something darker. Try the Kombucha - it's supplied by Big Island Booch in HiLo. Homemade popsicles are great if available. Nice selection of breakfast and lunch foods.

Such luck! The Green Flash is so close to my accommodation that I can see it from my lanai. After sampling one of their delicious, smooth and fresh Kona coffees I've made a coffee run part of my morning ritual. See you again tomorrow!
