Well, it was okay. It was reasonably easy to find. The price was fair for the meal, and we were there for breakfast. Were we overwhelmed? No. If it was not written up in the Fodor Big Island book, it is likely we would have overlooked it, and not felt like we missed anything. The staff were very friendly. The... More

We thought this was a nice stopping point for lunch. You need to drive around the back of the Parker Ranch mall: it's between several empty shops. The signage menu board is large, it takes time to study the options. You order at the counter and they bring your selection to your table. There was some confusion differentiating between a... More

What a great find! We drove from Kona to Hilo a little over a week ago and were starving by the time we arrived in Waimea/Kamuela. This is hidden on the backside of Parker Ranch Center, so you have to search for it, but it is definitely worthwhile. Lots of fresh sandwiches, great deli salads, delicious desserts -- all homemade... More

Homemade food made from scratch and created from fresh produce; this is what I remember from my healthy lunch experience at Lilikoi cafe. Their green salads are mouth watering. They have original deli options, such stuffed avocado with tuna pine nuts salad, or pesto chicken pasta. Delicious!!

Really enjoyed the crepes - fresh, hot, tasty, good balance of flavors. The lilikoi cheescake was interesting. Friendly. Prices were a bit high for a cafe, but everything looked very fresh.

One of the best places in this lovely town to eat...I'm not a health nut per se but I could eat their salads and sandwiches several times a week without getting tired just because it's good...and I'd be healthier for it! This would be my first and last stop when I'm in town. It's maybe a bit on the expensive... More

A local gentleman recommended this cafe. It was a little difficult to find as it is on the back side of a strip mall area. Our breakfast was worth the extra effort. I wish we stayed closer and were able to go back.

They have many different types of salads all available to take out. They serve breakfast and lunch. The location is a little hard to find as... More
