A good breakfast spot

We were on our way from Kailau-Kona to Volcano National Park, and left town too early for breakfast. So thanks to Trip Advisor, we felt fortunate to find Hana Hou. The food was quite good, and the service was great. My bacon and eggs were great, and the coffee was too. We were tempted by the baked... read more

Since the Punaluu Bake Shop looked crowded with tourists, we decided to try a new lunch spot and chose Hana Hou so we could say we'd eaten at the southernmost restaurant in the US! Unfortunately, it was far from the best food in the US. Prices were average for Hawaii and very fair for such a remote location; portions were... More

Main thing going for them is the location. Mediocre food, bad service, dirty tables, but good desserts. Small portions, bad salad, greasy food

We stopped here after hiking South Point and the Green Sand Beach. The food and service were great. Very much a small town diner and easy to pass by on the highway, but this is the place to go when in the area.

We ordered a BBQ Pull pork sandwich and shared between me and my girlfriend, and it was enough and satisfying. Price was reasonable

Plan ahead for the homemade desserts. Best food stop during your circle tour around Hawai'i island! Yes, the bakery is fine, but for a real meal, it's Hana Hou!

This is a fun little place to grab lunch. The southernmost restaurant in the US--I love a good *hook*--was really good. I had the loco moco (local Hawaiian favorite) with beef patty and the liliko'i lemonade. Both were very good. This place definitely has a diner-type feel, so it's very informal and relaxed. Our party of 4 had lunch there... More

We enjoyed a great meal at the Hana Hou Restaurant on our way from Pahoa to Kona. After stopping off at the Black Sand Beach, we wanted a place to grab a bite before traveling on to Kona. The macadamia nut/chicken salad, soup of the day (mushroom barley), and sandwiches were well prepared and delicious. Service friendly and quick...and we... More

The only thing missing was the little $.25 jukebox at each table. Formica table tops and blue vinyl chairs it wasn't much to look at and at first glance a more critical customer would turn around and walk out. We stayed and had a very taste reasonably priced meal. But, don't forget a piece of pie. They had many to... More
