Love this place! Relaxed atmosphere, great with kids, and the ICED KONA COFFEE. It was my go-to for six days straight and I miss it! Perfectly brewed, iced, and helped me to power through winter break on the Big Island. Kids loved Tropical Dreams ice cream - especially the strawberry sorbet!

Tourists just streamed into this nice place. They had a great variety of coffees, cookies, and ice creams. Wifi service free and works fast.

And cheap healthy sandwiches and goodies. A good fuel stop on your trip through hippy dippy Wahi. Across the street from AlohaMan shop - also recommended.

What a great cup of joe. Best coffee on the island and as a guide I drive all over the island drinking and eating this stuff all day long all over big island and they got the goods. Great gift shop too. The owner Karen has been serving up aloha for 20 years and knows how to make it good... More

Really great little coffee spot in Hawi. The coffee is fresh, and truly tasty. The snacks and pastries are also very good as well. The sitting area is nice and open. It was fairly busy when we arrived so we took that as a good sign.

Great ice cream! Flavors did a happy dance in our mouths. Coffee was pretty good also. Was going to buy one of their beautiful coffee mugs but was made in China. No thanks

Big island Revealed wrote a must stop for ice cream. Coffee cookie is great, Kohala road good. Did not try the coffee or sandwiches but there were long lines.

We stopped here while waiting to do our Flumin Ditch Kayak. The menu was somewhat limited but was o.k. We just had coffee and ice cream. There is some fun shops around the coffee shop so made it a fun stop.

Great spot to stop! The coffee is great and so is the food and service. I was made to feel at home even though I was a tourist.

Thank seemlyobserver
