The scuttlebutt at the morning coffee group in Kona is the Aloha Vista Bar and Grill changed management last year, which is why we are seeing a lot more advertising for it, I suppose.
Greg, who used to be a former police officer, tends to show up at coffee on Wednesdays because his wife gets a massage nearby, and he mentions the place. (In fact, her massage therapist is fabulous as I can now witness first hand.) Greg says he and his wife often have breakfast at Aloha Vista Bar and Grill because it's a nice way to start the day.
