As a local usually this is a great spot for breakfast. However, their quality is starting to slip. They have started cutting corners, and it is showing. I went in for breakfast this morning and I noticed the coffee was on the weak side. Usually...More

We simply adored this small breakfast cafe so much we ate there three times. I loved the loco moco with spam but the omelet with a puna avocado was the champion hands down. Great food and we even bought the homemade hot sauce to bring...More

The whole family had breakfast here. Outside the local Bob Dylan played a hippie repertoire on his guitar, while a friendly, young Betty Boop like waitress served us a tremendous breakfast. Lots of exotic fruits and funny decorated plates. Smoothies were awesome.

The restaurant presents a hippie atmosphere, it is hard to pin point the decoration theme from all different abstract paintings on the wall, the open windows make the interior appeared to be more specious than it actually is. We were here early morning for breakfast,...More

Aloha, no, we allow our customers to come in when they wish, and first come first served so as to keep out the "have to do this now" vibes, and increase our aloha and ho'olauna. Many of our customers have shared tables and... More

Chef-grown organic produce in most meals, in a rainbow of colors and flavors, in an intimate cafe setting in historic Old Pahoa town. We have wonderfully eclectic tastes for the gourmet as well as vegans who just want "REAL" food. Most of our customers compliment us on how beautiful our food looks as well as how great it tastes, and for the price, it is a deal well worth the drive from Kona! We are in lava zone 1, so, you may have traffic, vog, or Lava to contend with, but you may also have the best time in your life coming here!
