My wife and I are at this restaurant three times during our 5 days in Kona. Breakfast was very good. I particularly enjoyed the Puna Kine Eggs Benedict, served on homemade bread with spinach. Their side orders of fruits change daily depending on availability, but...More

So, so meal. The Bread Pudding French Toast served lukewarm not hot. Greeter was not very cheerful, server friendly and kept coffee full. View is fantastic, but not worth the cost for so so food.

The restaurant has a nice, cozy atmosphere. We enjoyed our breakfast outside, with a view of the coast. We ordered different toast/egg plates, which, although not super exceptional, were still delicious and a great way to start the morning.

This is my favorite restaurant in Kona, possibly all of Hawaii. Spacious area and seating to view the bay in Kona. Outstanding coffee/lattes/smoothies. Good food. Homemade breads/bakery. Clean easily available bathrooms. A great place to hang out for a rest from the heat or retreat...More
