Didn't go for sweets or ice cream. They serve breakfast and sandwiches. Their bacon is the best and you can't beat the view. (The coffee was just ok though)

We were visiting Avila for sunset and had a big drive afterward so we stopped by Hula Hut for coffee. Friendly people and tasty coffee!

Visiting town and stopped in to look around and check out the menu. Chose to lunch elsewhere but I took note of the small case up front with some good looking baked items-brownies and such. After lunch I made a point of coming back to...look closer. Very nice lady was really helpful with answering my questions. So I jumped in with both feet. Brownie, lemon cake slice, and banana muffin. Lemon cake was moist, flavorful, and just the right amount of lemon drizzle. Wife and I liked that very much. The muffin I chose to eat the next day at breakfast and while it was a well done muffin it lacked a lot in banana flavor. Least fave item. But the brownie was the star! My goodness just delicious. Very large cut, great “crackle” to the surface and dense wonderful chocolate flavor. Plus if you like the edge on your brownie this one was perfect. Lots of bakeries and brownies in my time on this earth and this was world class. Wish I’d got more or the recipe or could go back again soon. Chocolate fans make sure you look for this if in town.More

The breakfast burrito was ok. The tea selection was great. The chocolate muffin is SUPER chocolatey. The coffee was great, nice dark roast. But the smoothies were fantastic! We would go back for those!

Nice stop for a quick bite or ice cream. Pick up a sandwich to eat on beach. Quick service. Adorable gift items in shop area. Fairly priced.

Been there many times to purchase food as well as merchandise. After purchasing ice cream, the 5 of us were sitting in a corner table visiting and eating. We were told that we were sitting in a staff break area. It was not marked that...way. Implied we should leave. We did and it will be the last time we visit and purchase merchandise from here. Just lost a good customer and countless others that we will tell of our experience. To bad, always enjoyed this place.More

I had heard good things about Burnstein’s ice cream and wasn’t disappointed in the quality. But it was expensive — $5 for a single cone.

We tried Doc Bernstein’s ice cream. It is so good. The Hula Hut is a cute store to shop in as well. Very friendly staff and service. Loved it!!
