You're not going to run into Green Flash by chance. It's a bit south of the main drag in Kona, and not easily visible from the road. Make a point of getting here. The coffee is very good - we've only found one place we like better for coffee, but Green Flash is far cheaper. Good menu for food -... More

I don't drink coffee but my husband does he said it is great. We've stopped here every morning since we got here. Their pineapple upside down mini cake is so good!

My family of five ate here this morning at about 7 am. Not crowded at all and one of the only places that was open early (which is great when it is lunch according to East Coast USA body-clock time). They have a picnic table outside and a small seating area inside. We had French toast breakfast sandwiches and my... More

It's a small little place but they have excellent coffee. They also have some decent breakfast options but it takes a bit longer for them to prepare them for you. Get there early when it's less busy.

Very nice people and service. Stopped in several times on our trip for takeout coffee and kombucha. Never did try the smoothies. Really loved their iced coffee and kombuchas. Tasty pastries: tried the bran muffin and pineapple upside down cake. Easy in & out. Cheap bottled water too.

We went to Green Flash Coffee one day on our way to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The location is next to Sea Village Resort at Ali'i Drive in Kona. They offer freshly brewed coffee and tea specialties as well as Smoothies and offer a small but great tasting variety of breakfast and lunch items. I enjoyed my French Toast Breakfast... More

We had our doubts when we first entered the place, as it is not typically impressive. But that was soon forgotten when we placed our order. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We each had a different sandwich (panini) and a different coffee drink. We both thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink. It is a casual place, with a... More

Loved the coffee and smoothies. The titular Green Flash smoothie is representative - very healthy, very tasty. The small space and staff were overwhelmed during the busy time I was there, resulting in long waits. For some reason there don't seem to be many coffee shops along this stretch of Ali'i Drive. The food is worth the wait, and early... More

I went here this morning for a coffee before catching my flight to Maui. The coffee was amazing. This is a small coffee shop but it is very busy. The service was great as well. It's too bad I did not find out about this place before I left Kona area.

Good menu (for such a small place). NIce range of breakfast sandwiches, bagels, baked goods & kombucha. Friendly staff & good smoothies, too!
