This is not the first time we picked up food from The Coffee Shack, but with such customer service next time I will look for other options near by.
My experience from today: I ordered 5 sandwiches to go. I asked cashier, blond young girl,...she said her name was Kristen, how long it will take? She said: 20-30 mins, wait outside, I will call you. I did wait for 30 mins right outside the door, without shade with mid-day sun.
Next, I stood in line, as there is a note near the entrance to form one line even if you just have a question.
When I got in and asked Kristen to check on my order, she said: oh yes it was ready for long time and I called for you. When I said with irritation that I was right outside and did not hear it Kristen even did not apologize for inconvenience or confusion and just continued doing whatever she was doing.
All our sandwiches were cold, and in bag there were 2 napkins in total for 5 sandwich boxes. Food was OKish. We got 4 fish sandwiches and 1 grilled cheese. View from deck is nice, attaching photo.More
My wife and I stumbled on to this place. It was such a pleasant surprise. There was a line but we did not have to wait to long. A women working in the kitchen came out and sang for us a happy little tune. When...they called our name to be seated they seated us on the patio with the most amazing view. We had these 3 geckos that were entertaining us before and during our meal. I ordered the special which was eggs Kalua pork pepperjack cheese and avacodo it was very tasty. My wife asked for French toast at first they said they were out so she ordered a cinnamon roll. But came back a couple of minutes later and told us the cook made some more batter for the French toast. She said the French toast was pretty good. The severs were all friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place.More
My sister and I stopped by this place a few times and it was always busy. Finally, on our last day, we drove down and had a coffee, I had the chocolate cream pie and she had the key lime pie. We had such a...beautiful view, everything was delicious along with our waiter being very nice. It is a great pit stop.More
Perfect stop for any meal but we enjoyed breakfast there twice. Fresh coffee and made to order lattes if you just want a quick stop on the way to Volcanoes. The view here is other worldly and I can’t do it justice either pictures or...descriptions, but trust me, this is worth going out of your way for. If you go for breakfast, I’d recommend getting there before 9am to beat the rush. Service was awesome too.More
If you can find a better scenic view at any restaurant anywhere in this country please let me know! This rustic place sets on a hill side perhaps 2000 ft above sea level over looking beautiful Kealakekua Bay. People open jelly cups and place them...on the railings for the geckos to get their sugar buzz.
Food here is always great. Love the home fries with onions and green peppers.
Open at this time for inside dining.More
The wait was 30mintues, Parking is tight. But the wait is worth it. Awesome views. The staff is so friendly. We were a party of 4. They asked us if my two daugthers 8 and 6yr olds wanted a table of their own and a...private order setting. They were super friendly with them to let them have their own table and server and order just like adults. They had their time of life enjoying their fresh cheese pizza with pineapple topping with a gorgeous view. I am not a coffee drinker but I enjoyed their morning kona coffee, which was not bitter and very smooth. We met the manager Jim as well, and everyone from the front desk to the chef in the kitchen and the server girls, everyone was friendly and brisk in service.More
We love this place. It sits right by the road with a vast unobstructed view of the ocean. They feed the gekkos so the cutest little green creatures are all around. Food is also fantastic. It's a do not miss when in the Kona area.
