In the coming months, Java Lava will bring Kona coffee and classic Hawaiian dishes to a brand new space in the Museum District.

The Museum Park Neighborhood Association announced the arrival of Java Lava, which will open at 1201 Southmore Boulevard, in a post to its blog on Monday. The new shop will source its coffee from its very own estate farm in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, which grows only organic, sustainably-produced Kona coffee.

In addition to the coffee, Java Lava will also serve up a menu of American fare. According to the restaurant’s website, diners can look forward to dishes like mac and cheese spiked with truffle oil, grilled calamari, sandwiches, and larger plates like braised lamb served over rice pilaf and lobster bolognese. There will also apparently be a $20 burger on the menu, topped with Gruyere and fried onions.

No word yet on when Java Lava will make its debut, but Eater has reached out for more details on the new coffee destination’s arrival. At present, it appears that construction just got underway a few weeks ago, which means that coffee enthusiasts could be waiting a while.

In the meantime, scope out these renderings of the space from Albany Studio.
