We always stop here for breakfast on our drive from Kona to Volcano. We love it as it is just what it is a family run business serving great food. I had the Big Breakfast and my wife the Irish Oats. Good food, great service and fine coffee what could you want in the morning !! We have also stopped... More

Off the beaten path but a nice place for a meal and a great place for desert. The service was great and you could tell by the number of locals coming in, and many getting food to go, that the food would be good. Many folks stopping in just for some of the numerous deserts they have. I would go... More

We had a nice quick dinner here. The service was great, and our waitress was very friendly. Macnut crusted chicken with a rice and salad was huge and the liliquoi dressing has a nice balance between sweet and tart. The winner was the homemade pineapple upside down cake. Moist and delicious!

This place is great not the buzz of the bakery across the road but this bakery in further south, possible the most southern bakery in the US. Found the staff to be extremely helpful full of great suggestions. We were staying at a condo overlooking the Black Sands beach and purchased most of our bakery stuff here. Try one of... More

One of our favorite places when heading south. The place has a cool vintage feel about it. The service is good and the food is always great. We tell all of our guests to go here when they travel to volcano. My fav is the Korean chicken with fried rice. my husband loves everything equally! Can't wait to get back... More

What a pleasant surprise - one of the best meals we had in Hawaii. And for Hawaii, not expensive! Lots of locals were there. The food was so fresh. Their bread is fresh baked. Their pies are delicious - I didn't even realize the much-deserved hoopla that surrounds them. The waitress/cashier was very nice.

Stopped here for lunch and were promptly seated as there were only four other people in the place. Twenty minutes later and folks were waiting in line and after eating here we can understand why. The lillokoi ice tea was perfect for the hot day and our lunch of burgers and pulled pork sandwiches was great. As others have mentioned,... More

Stopped in for breakfast on our way to Volcano park, from Kona. We both had a great meal. I had my favourite - 1egg, bacon and a pancake. Pancake was a treat with coconut syrup! My sister had "the breakfast special"- eggs, smoked pork and rice (tho they ran out of rice so asked if they could substitute toast). Everything... More

Need I say more? Wash it down with some great coffee and it's a perfect morning stop on the way to Volcano NP. Love the '60s Hawaiian decor and the friendly service.

We were told to go here by some friends. It was alright but I wouldn't write home about it. My wife liked her Hogzilla burrito but my dinner special was nothing special at all. The service was friendly but soooo slow. When we ordered dessert they forgot it - twice. The pie was quite good when it finally arrived. Then... More
