Save room for the Desserts! yum!!

The ladies that served me were very friendly and helpful. Save room for dessert. Make sure to also save money to purchase a beautiful copper likeness of the Big Island, or a turtle, seahorse, etc. they are on the walls and done by local artists..

Great breakfast and coffee to start your day. They also have a few motel rooms which are a good option to stay at!

Ate here twice during our visit to the big island. Family place, great service and food was good. Key Lime Pie was really tasty. Give it a try.

They serve excellent, filling comfort food here at a good price. We stopped after a hike at at the volcano and had some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. The sides were forgettable, but the carrot cake was to die for. You MUST get dessert and the lilikai lemonade. Friendly service. We had live music as well. Very... More

This place is not fancy. There is no air conditioning. It has furniture and decor from a different decade. But the atmosphere is "come on in" comfortable. The service is prompt and kind. There is local artists' work displayed for purchase, especially lots of copper sculptures. We stopped for lunch. I couldn't really tell you what the rest of the... More

If you're going to South Point, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, Papakolea Green Sand Beach, or just passing through to Vocanoes Park, this is a good placse to stop. You might have to go a bit off Mamalahoa Highway before you see it. It's very friendly. The roast pork lunch was superb, and you can look at all of the possibilities... More

I found this restaurant from Hawaii Revealed guide. I ordered burger steak and fish dishes, both of them delicious. Wasn't pleased with the side salads which was just lettuce and some shredded carrot but nevertheless the food was prepared like a home made meal and spiced perfectly. Coffee and coconut pie was delicious too and if you pass by and... More

I had a chicken salad inside half a papaya-- delicious and refreshing. My nephew loved his burger. We ordered an assortment of creams pies that were spectacular.

This is a great place to stop and eat either on your way to or from Volcano from the Kona side of the island. They serve a good plate lunch and have awesome desserts and lilikoi lemonade. Tried the chicken salad in a papaya this time and was a wonderful, lighter alternative. We always enjoy finding a place with a... More
