Nice, if tired, little pizzeria

This was a nice little pizzeria, which was welcoming open later in the day than some places in Honokaa. The food was tasty, if a little filling for a hot afternoon, though the ice cream looked great.

This place rocks! Delicious hearty fare, perfect for lunch or dinner after hiking down (then up, up, uuuup) to/from Waipi'o Valley. Plus, great personalized friendly cheerful service.

The weather was rainy so we stopped in town for lunch. This place was rated well so we tried it out. My dad and I each got a sandwich and we split a chef salad. It was the best food we had all trip.

While visiting family in Honokaa, we chose this restaurant for our first dinner out (four adults and two children). The anti-pasta plater was fantastic. The two side salads were super fresh and the two pizzas were very good. An extra helping of feta cheese in a small dish was pricey at $3.75 but everything else was quite reasonable. We had... More

The food was super yummy, there was a lot of options and it was BYOB so we brought in some wine and made a nice vacay date night out of it. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for some good italian food.

My mom, my two sons and I came to the cafe for dinner. It is small with limited seating. We were seated at a communal table which was fine. Among our group we ordered a ham and pineapple pizza, two different types of calzones and a garden salad. The food was very tasty, salad was a bit small but the... More

What a great little find. We stopped in on December 30 for lunch after sightseeing in the area. Friendly service and excellent pizza! My husband had a calzone, which he enjoyed too. Nice local restaurant. If you are in the area, you should definitely stop in!

I wish the owner would spend a few hours cleaning up this quaint restaurant. I can't help but wonder how dirty it is behind the scenes. Food was adequate but not great. I recommend that visitors find a nicer place in town

Charming little place. Our waitress was very friendly and our lunch was great. My travel companions had some amazing looking, and tasting sandwiches and I absolutely loved my chicken salad. Moist, very tasty chicken. So much taste I didn't even use the dressing. Bread was amazing they make it fresh every day. The pizza's on other tables looked great to.

Very out-of-the-way location, but what awesome food. I had the pastrami sandwich. The bread was fresh baked and soft, meat was tasty, and the combination made the best sandwich I've had in years!
