Small cafe with good breakfast options. Fresh fruit is served with all their plates and if you still can't have enough - try their exotic fruit plate. Also, must try is their seven peppers hot sauce - goes well with all omelettes if you love...More

Mahalo nui loa!! Our locally sourced juices are our best, so thanks for noticing!! I'm glad you got to try the jaboticaba, it's my favorite, kinda tied with lilikoi, too... Hope to see you again soon. Auntie Liz and Uncle Stephen

The biscuits & gravy was blah, it was cornbread biscuits and no flavor with the gravy. Staff was friendly.

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!
