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.

Coffee is good, food is good, employees are nice! And they recycle! Decorations are interesting, and they seem to always be open.

Saw reviews on Trip Advisor, but not really impressed! Food was good, fresh greens on the burger and salad were wonderful! The backed sweet potato fries were tasteless. The chocolate macadamia nut ice cream was very yummy tho. It was super busy and we waited awhile for food, so if you are in a hurry probably not the place to... More

Great cafe w terrific coffee, sandwiches and the amazing tropical dreams ice cream. Hawi is a cool town w charming shops which I always go; 15 years now annually. Their coffee and ice cream make it a great pit stop point. FYI: Bathroom is actually next door in an adjacent shop.

Hawi is a small little town with some cute shops and nice little stop when your on your way back from Waimea. We had a craving for ice cream and stopped here and although the place is small and doesn't seem like much, it has the most amazing fresh made ice cream! Great little get away from the large crowds... More
