I went for a walk into Kona down Alii Drive each morning and on the way home got into the habit of stopping for a coffee at Java on the Rock. They serve very good Kona coffee and you can enjoy it sitting on the...More

The food and service was excellent. This place is right on the ocean and the view is very nice. My wife and I were there in 2012 and plan on going there next time in Kona. The bar and restaurant are both very well managed.

This is a wonderful little spot to start your day. The coffee is great, and nice specialty drinks, bagels, fruit plates, and egg scrambles. Wonderful views. Go early....usually a line up to get in by around 8 a.m. Perfect!

This is my favorite place to end my Alii Drive walk each morning. They serve coffee, rolls and breakfast until 11 a.m. It is nice to sit in a beach setting for a morning coffee.

At this restaurant you can eat directly over the shoreline along the ocean, the very best feature. We ate breakfast. The selection is modest and is a sort-of modified self service. We ordered and paid at the front, toasted our own bagels, then our dishes...More

Stopped this morning for some Kona coffee. We had their Mountain Harvest medium blend and it was tasty. I paid with one Canadian penny (which I didn't even notice that it was Canadian until the cashier pointed it out and she refused to take the...More
