I am a local and have come here several times to give another shot to a local establishment. Never again... 5 visits and 5 disappointments. The staff is lazy and the food is disappointing. Sorry for the bad review, but you have earned it.

Met up with the family for a late midday snack at the Daylight Mind Coffee Company. Surprised to enter the restuarant through a myriade of stuff cluttering the access way, as if walking in through a warehouse. My better half had been waiting 25 minutes...More

Daylight Mind provided the best coffee we tried in Kona. The location offers beautiful views onto the water. We also came for breakfast one morning and it was very good.
