First off, you may be wondering about how we came up with the name, Daylight Mind Events & Catering. Daylight Mind is the literal translation of the Hawaiian word for enlightenment, na‘auao. And from the very beginning, we have been obsessed with exploration… and coffee.
Daylight Mind Events & Catering started out as a small piece of the Daylight Mind Coffee Company puzzle. The Kailua-Kona restaurant, roastery, bakery and café had an underutilized ocean-front bar and lanai that was begging for someone to notice that it was absolutely PERFECT for parties! When Julia Pittman saw the space, she felt that the world needed to know about this little slice of heaven on the water.
With a little time, and some five-star reviews, Daylight Mind Events & Catering has grown into one of the busiest venues on the Big Island, coordinating and catering over 150 events per year.
With a little time, and some five-star reviews (a big shout out to our couples!), Daylight Mind Events & Catering has grown into one of the busiest venues on the Big Island, coordinating and catering over 150 events per year.
