The 7 Best Food & Drink in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii (HI)

December 5, 2021 Agatha Simes

Coffee drinkers will recognize Kona as the source of some of the best beans in the world. Get your blood pumping with a walk along the “Royal Footsteps” waterfront stretch of Alii Drive, or take stargazing to the next level with a nighttime visit to the summit of Mauna Kea. Waterfalls, volcanoes, and soft black sands are just some of the natural features that make Kailua unique. Shimmy your hips at a hula-filled luau, or get an eyeful of native history at the Kamakahonu compound.

Ola Brew

Reviewed By McMidgy - Deerfield, United States

Loved this place. Go get lunch at Broke Da Mouth and then take the two-minute drive to Ola and spend the afternoon here. We tried almost everything on the menu. Our favorites were the vanilla porter, Hawaiian strong ale, and the white pineapple cider. Blake, our bartender, was such a fun friend to make for the day. We just sat around for 3-4 hours, read a bit, and kept having little tasters of this and that. Perfect place for low-key drinks.

Kona Brewing Company

Reviewed By Dot13

We took a 10:30 tour of the brewery in Kona - shout-out to our tour guide Brian, who was interesting and fun. We took part in a generous tasting of four of their beers. The timing was such that we stayed there for lunch, having pizza and beer as per Brian’s recommendation. I had the Captain Cook’s and my husband had the Margherita. It was great! We sat outside to eat on a beautiful day. Another day in paradise.

If you’re looking for a fun, free way to spend a weekday morning, you should visit Ho’oulu Farmer’s Market located on the grounds of the Sheraton Keauhou. This quaint little farmer’s market is full of interesting local artcraft, prepared foods and local fresh produce. There’s always free live music, too. You can pick up a breakfast, lunch or just a snack and sit at one of the tables to listen to some really good local musicians. My wife and I love to just walk around and see what’s new. Today we bought dragonfruit/lilikoi jam and CBD-infused local lehua honey. This market is a lot like the Big Island itself: friendly, relaxed, authentic and interesting. It’s a great way to spend a morning. And it’s free!
