It's not a fast food restaurant but the food comes out just as fast as McDonalds! We always get the stew gravy and gravy burgers. Their selection of loco mocos are expansive along with plate lunches of all sorts. I didn't get any pictures of what we ate because it was gone as soon as we got it! LOVE Cafe... More

Prices very reasonable. Get your plate with gravy or not; white or brown rice. Great green side salad too.

I had been wanting to check out Cafe 100 for some time when we stopped in. We were headed downtown and to Mike's so it was on the way. I had the salmon loco moco. It was good enough, but we didn't realize we would have to sit outside in the heat. It wasn't as fast as Blaine's either. I... More

First went to Cafe 100 a few years ago to try LocoMoco. Had never heard of it, read about it in a magazine & they said Cafe 100 had the best. Returned this time for more. Sure, it's not the best food. Yeah, it's greasy. But it is cheap, filling, lots of options. You eat candy floss, corn dogs, mini... More

It's an outdoor restaurant that you place your order at the window, wait for them to call your number, pick up the food and sit at a picnic table and enjoy. The super loco moco was average but the korean bbq was AMAZING and a really great deal for your money. Big portions, fast service, clean picnic tables and alot... More

Cafe 100 is a local favorite, with delicious food, plenty of options, weekly specials, and top notch service. I wish it was open on Sunday though, or open later. But other then that, awesome!

Guess they are known for the local dish "Loco Moco" and they have a large variety of they including one made with grilled Ahi. Its a fast food place with outdoor sitting. If I am in the area, I would go there again

….without a visit to Cafe 100. The loco-moco is always on the list when we return to Hilo. Simple and fast, great for a quick lunch or filling snack.
