Lots of interesting items. Did not order much but will next time there. Small tasty breakfast plates are available that hit the spot well.

We have eaten at Orchid Isle Cafe several times on prior trips to the Big Island, but this year, we were surprised to see that the name has changed to Caffe Florian. New owners have completely refurbished the establishment and it still has the same wonderful view.

We stopped in for breakfast as we were driving south from Kona. Just a small place, but a variety of offerings. The folks working here were stiff, but the food was really good.

We had breakfast here, and the eggs and fresh fruit were very good. Coffee was fresh and hot. The interior is cute. The atmosphere was friendly, casual and relaxed. Very clean. My friend left her purse here by mistake. They kept it until the next morning, and it was returned untouched. THANKS!!

On the road south, we stopped for a light breakfast and enjoyed the visit. Good coffee, small variety of breakfast items -- however, met our need. Small back deck offers views and geckos -- very cute. Friendly staff and great service.

Our family of four stopped here for a fresh tasty lunch of quiche and sandwiches. Everything was just delicious and the service was quick and friendly. Little patio outside would make a nice spot for morning coffee.

When I got there, they were closing. They closed at 2:00 p.m. However, thanks to them, I was able to discover the Coffee Shack. I'll definitely try the Orchid Isle Cafe. By the way, they are selling the business. I show it in the local newspaper. We were looking to buy property on the Big Island and saw the ad.

We have stopped here a couple of times. This is really a small, intimate coffee cafe with a great view from the back porch. It also has one internet computer you can rent time on; my compute had crashed on this trip, and the server Nicole signed me into her account so I could finish what I was doing. So... More

Great place for breakfast & lunch. Hot espresso drinks cost a little more but compete with the best I've had in Seattle, coffee capitol of the mainland. nice foam art too. bagels are inexpensive & delicious!
