Honestly the best coffee I have had in a very long time! And the flourless chocolate cake was also divine. Server was so lovely too. It was quite difficult to find, just off the Main Street - and it really is a tin shack. Looked...More

I went in for one treat- hard to choose- went for the lilikoi thumbprint cookie- I could eat one everyday! Delicious, substantial, not too sweet. Friendly service. I’ll be back for more treats.

I like the word quirky, it describes the Tin Shack perfectly. It's housed in what used to be a Lex Brodie in old Pahoa. The customers are a mix of locals, visitors and, I hate to use this word, hippies. The staff are happy and...More

Absolutely ADORE this place. We went every morning of our trip to the Big Island, my boyfriend loved the coffee. I am in love with the Pesto Okinawan Eggs Benedict. The hollandaise sauce was the best ever, and they make their own english muffins. Couldn't...More
