This place is nestled high on the slopes of Captain Cook, with a fantastic view of the coast below. The open area is really refreshing, and the staff is super friendly. Kids were very entertained by the visiting geckos (they can be seen on the window sills, walls, ceilings...). Their Kona coffee is very smooth and leaves no after-taste. The food on the other hand, is just so-so (we ordered pizza and salad). Maybe the sandwiches are their specialty and worth a try next time.

The food was amazing and so was the view. We stopped for breakfast on the way to Puna from Kona. So delicious!

Visited for breakfast at the end of March. we arrived at 7.30am and there were people there before us. Had a good breakfast and coffee, the Latte Café and egg benedict and my husband had the vegetable scramble eggs with potato and rye toast, the food was all very good and a superb location, looking down to Captain Cook Bay. Sad to see that the restaurant was up foo sale. Hope the new owners can keep the level of service and food up to what it Is at the moment. Service very good.

This is a good stop if you are visiting The Place of Refuge, The Painted Church, Kealakekua Bay or that general area.

Parking can be a challenge, but be patient and you’ll be fine. We also waited about 15 minutes at lunch time for a seat. It was bustling, in a good way.

Pretty setting and great ocean views. We saw more clouds and rain moving through than sun, but that was cool to watch as well. The pizzas were tasty - we had the gorgonzola one and the sandwiches were massive. Good vegetarian options. Most everything homemade it seemed.

Worth a stop for the food if you are in the area and definitely if the sun is out!!
