I might have given this place another star but the service was meh 😒 After a long hot wait in the parking lot we were allowed in the small building to order and pay for our food. The smoothies were meh, the coffee, meh, and...the paninis, yuck. Buttermilk bread was toasted and then slathered with a pesto mayo, which was more mayo than pesto. And when I say slathered...Ew. The turkey was processed lunch meat and the tuna melt was super fishy, and again, too much mayo. I don’t plan on trying this place again.More

Absolutely horrid. Please don't waste your time or money, there are much better places in Kona. For $40 we got 2 sandwiches, an iced coffee and a couple bottled drinks. I took one bite of my chicken panini and was done. It was disgusting; nothing...but mayonnaise and soggy bread. I ended up taking a napkin to wipe off the chicken before I could eat it. The rest went into the trash. My husband didn't fair any better with his food either coffee was mediocre with zero flavor from the sugar free coconut syrup.More

We discovered this coffee joint on trip advisor while travelling to Kailua-Kona. It was the perfect destination for a morning walk/job/run. Both the coffee and smoothies were a hit. Definitely, worth visiting. I am not a coffee drinker, but the tropical smoothies were great. The...aptly named Green Flash smoothie was great.More

We were staying in the condo complex just up the street so green flash coffee was our morning stop. And yes the coffee is good one with some good pastries. Good stop for a good cup.

The coffee and service were outstanding! I don't have anything bad to say about the coffee as it was exceptional. The seating area was clean, inside as well as the store front outside. I would recommend this to anyone.

Limited but delicious pastries but this place is all about the coffee. Small, nondescript place on the grounds of Sea Village. A few tables inside and out.

We have driven past Green Flash Coffee many times this week and decided to give it a try since it’s next to the condo we’re staying at this month. So the entry is on the side and is air conditioned, with pastries and even a...breakfast menu! The iced latte and iced americano hit the spot and joined us to the Oceanside via the public access close by. This will be my morning to go place for the rest of the month.More

I really love this little spot for a quick coffee and a yummy panini. They have some a nice little outside seating area. My MIL and I have dubbed it the "Secret Garden". 😊 It's nice to meet there with here for a nice catch...up. As a local we go often. 🤙🏻More

Went there for breakfast a couple of times. The food was very good and tasty. The staff was not great. They were chatting amongst them and kept customers waiting, they were unfamiliar with the till and how it could print receipts and when they didn't...charge for a drink and we went back to pay for it after we noticed on the receipt they didn't even thank us. For the prices they charge, they should have better service. 50 usd for 2 sandwiches and 2 drinks is ridiculous when you get that level of service.More
