Coffee Shack is for Sale

Kona coast favorite on the market.

Whenever we visit the Big Island of Hawaii, we try to get to The Coffee Shack, perched high above Kealakekua Bay and right along Highway 11, south of Kailua. Their coffee is terrific. The view from the lanai fabulous. And the ambiance laid-back Hawaiian.

Love the view from the lanai.

Much to our surprise, a small sign next to the door indicated that the café is for sale. We only bought a some juice, a scone to share, a couple of Benedicts and wonderful coffee (mine a cappuccino) that miraculously held their heat to the end,

Dense, flat and delicious cranberry scone.
Traditional eggs benedict.
Seafood benedict with ono instead of Canadian bacon. Potatoes for both versions were chunked, fried and topped with charred onions and green peppers.

Price check: Breakfast entrees, $10.95-$13.95; pastries, $3.50-$4.50; sides, $1.50-$3.95

The café is located on the makai (ocean) side of Highway 11, one mile south of the Captain Cook Post Office, between mile markers 108 and 109.
