The food is very good and well presented. It is cooked to order so it is always fresh and flavorful. The portions are not large, but are certainly adequate. The coffee is delicious

We were on the island for two days, and this was the best meal. Great creamy omelet and amazing coffee. Truly delicious Kona coffee. Service was friendly and quaint. Ambience isn’t much, and seating limited. But it looked like the restaurant takes reservations.
