The restaurant reviewed is:
Buns in the Sun
75-5596 Palani Road
Concha Bun & Kona Blue Sky Coffee
Danish Pastry, Assorted Cookies & Hot chocolate
Located at the Lanihau Center on a corner. Plenty of easy parking spaces. Across the road is the Kona coast shopping Center. Seating and tables are located outside in limited numbers with a view of the car park.
1 table but mainly standing room only. Laid back atmosphere with pastries on display in the counter and hot food made to order.
Served by a laid back and friendly guy who also gave me helpful directions when asked.
I was advised by the guy who served me that the Concha bun I ordered was going to be bland but it goes great with coffee. I have to agree with the blandness of the Concha bun which tasted very plain and dry. The coffee was awful by Italian/French standards and maybe this coffee was out of this world by American standards but I have a universal standard for my reviews. Yiki had a dreadful hot chocolate and the Danish pastry was easily forgettable. One saving grace for Buns in the Sun was the delightful melt in the mouth cookies. They were very well made and I can imagine that other bakery items would be equally excellent. My rating will be on the expereince that I actually had though.
