Java On the Rock

Kailua Kona, HI

Peaceful, laid back breakfast

Java on the Rock served up some GREAT coffee, and a very nice, no-frills breakfast. I had the Florentine omelette, which is steamed scrambled eggs with spinach & mozzarella in them, nice fresh fruit & a croissant. If you’ve never had steamed eggs before, they’re a lot fluffier than pan-scrambled eggs; really delicious, and less fat because you don’t need any oil or butter to cook them! The place is right on the water, and the view and ocean sounds are very relaxing.

A couple of things to know about the place: most of the seating is patio tables on sand. Also, there are a very large number of adorable English sparrows who hang out there, hoping to snipe your bread products. One guy we saw got up to refill his coffee, left his plate unattended, and came back to find his croissant being carted off by a dozen or so of the miniature miscreants. If you have a problem with sand or sparrows, don’t eat here. If you think sparrows are cute and you like sand, it’s a lovely place for a quick breakfast. Just remember to cover your plate with your napkin if you need a refill!

Florentine Omelette

Light, fluffy steamed eggs with spinach and mozzarella cheese. You can get it in a tortilla, or on a plate with a croissant or bagel.
