Island Lava Java, Big Island

A bistro-style diner, Island Lava Java is a favorite coffee house and restaurant on the Big Island. With two locations, one at Waikoloa and one at Kona, the restaurant prides itself on using the highest quality local produce and ingredients. Although its breakfasts have been voted the “Best Breakfast in Kona” by West Hawaii Today readers, Island Lava Java also serves lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.

With a commitment to using the best local ingredients available, the beef used by Island Lava Java is grass-fed and reared on local farms and the goat’s cheese is also organic and locally sourced. The bread is made in-house and the desserts are home-made. The breakfast menu consists of an array of benedicts, omelets, bacon, fish, waffles and pancakes. Lighter breakfasts, such as croissants, bagels and yogurt are also available and there is always a plentiful supply of fresh 100% Kona Coffee on offer. The lunch menu is comprised of a selection of Fresh Fish, Burgers, Pizzas and Salads. The dinner menu is divided into a choice of pupus, salads and entrées. The selection of entrées includes Fresh Fish, Fish Tacos, Burgers, Ribs, Pork Chops and Chicken. The Sunday brunch menu is also extensive, featuring many old breakfast and lunch favorites. With mouth-watering treats like Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake and Chocolate Decadence Cake, there are plenty sweet options to round off every meal in the most satisfying way. As well as Kona Coffee, drinks on offer at Island Lava Java include tea, fresh fruit smoothies, shakes, speciality beverages and more.

With a bakery on-site to freshly make the restaurant’s own bread, pastries and pizza dough each day, Island Java Lava is open seven days a week every day of the year. Opening hours are from 6.30am until 9.00pm and a new online ordering service has recently been introduced.
