Local Cafe in Volcano

Ate here two mornings in a row. The location is great and the food is local and fresh. You can't really ask for anything more from Volcano. Be warned that the sandwiches are fairly large.

Went looking for this place based on reviews and found they were closed on Sundays! We ended up at lava rock cafe. Just wanted to post accurate information.

Best sandwiches this side of Island. They are huge, one sandwich feeds two people. Great place to stop before the Park for a great Picnic Lunch to take a long. If you're coming from Kona pass the Park and take a left into Volcano Village. The sandwich shop is just behind the Volcano Store.

Just thought it was important for readers to know they close at 5pm. We drove here for dinner since trip advisor said they were open to 7 and they were closed.

Wish this place stayed open after 5 pm. Seems like it closes earlier some days. We ate brunch here and loved it. Had a cinnamon bun, egg fried rice breakfast bowl and tried the chocolate cake. All was perfect. Don't miss stopping by.

We stopped at this tiny cafe after visiting Volcanoes National Park. We were starving and one of the rangers at the park recommended this place which is about 2 miles out of the park. It's basically a trailer with picnic tables outside but don't let that discourage you. I had one of the best sandwiches I have EVER had here!... More

So...the fried rice is great! We went there for a quick breakfast before going to volcano national park. Everything is a great value and a quick meal. But almost everything else is from Costco. The muffin we got was repackaged from Costco and the bacon on our fried rice was the frozen pre-cooked microwave kind from Costco. Go with the... More

Good range of sandwiches and wraps with different breads. You are able to customise to suit your tastes and order half or whole sandwiches. Nice little salad accompaniments too. Friendly service, very patient while you decided, Interior of the shop is quite small but you can wait outside in the covered area. Very good value for money.
