Great spot for lunch

We had an early arrival in Hilo and were headed to VNP for the day and wanted to grab a quick and filling bite before hitting the Park. We "Yelped" for the area and this place came up with good reviews, so we headed over. Great find. We were really pleased. Very diverse menu - tasty quiche and... read more

We stopped by Cafe Ohia on our way into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The cornbread was fantastic, and our sandwiches were good, but nothing special. The staff running the counter were very friendly, and were willing to get you anything you needed. Overall, this was a good lunch stop.

Went here with our extended family (group of 11). Sandwiches are made to order and are very tasty. They looked like they had some other good hot meals. This is a small place with picnic tables outside and basic (but good) food. If you're looking for a quick,easy, and relatively cheap lunch, this place is great.

We took a break from exploring Volcano National Park for a lunch break. Small area to order food, super friendly ladies working. Food was brought out to us at the picnic table area. Huge, yummy sandwiches, we took half home. Lau lau plate was tasty too. Try the spam musibi for something different.

We shared a LARGE and very good made-to-order sandwich and had more than enough to eat. We also shared a chocolate pecan tart for dessert -- also very good. All the seating is outside but much of it under cover so even on a rainy afternoon it was quite comfortable.

We love to stop here before we venture out for the day to buy their fantastic sandwiches made from fresh breads and a great assortment of meat and condiments. We put our sandwiches in the cooler and have a picnic during the day. Their sandwiches are huge! Half of a whole sandwich will fill me up (along with their great... More

This was in a book we bought on places to see/eat and what not on the big island. Still satisfied with every place we went to! This cafe had amazing sandwiches and soup. Not only that it was so fresh and they were the nicest people ever.

For such a tiny cafe / takeaway shop, this place has a great atmosphere! Breakfast was delicious and I sat and ate surrounded by birds who obviously wanted some of my tasty food! Staff are friendly and helpful and offered things such as the wifi password and to bring my food out to me without having to ask. Friendly locals,... More
