Island Lava Java Restaurant Review: An eclectic clientele gathers daily in this well-established coffeehouse for excellent caffeine hits, great pastries and free wireless Internet access. Guests can opt for table service or order at the counter. Watch the people traffic on Alii Drive and the boat-filled bay beyond, while you munch homemade sandwiches, wraps and salads, or slurp smoothies and ice creams. The fresh bakery goods (we love the cream cheese-glazed cinnamon rolls and buttery macadamia nut tarts) along with the Kona coffee are irresistible. When the sun sets, Island Lava Java transitions to a more elegant dining experience complete with candlelight and linens. Starters include guava ribs and blackened ahi bruschetta, while main dishes range from pizzas to shrimp penne pasta in creamy tomato sauce to a burger made with grass-fed Big Island beef.
