There are pretty limited options in the town of Volcano when it comes for food. We picked this place because it has a nice variety of options to please everyone in our party. I had a pulled pork sandwich and it was yummy. The server did a great job and I really have no complaints. Its a great place to... More

Cool little place that won't break the bank. A lot of choices on the menu and all reasonably priced. Probably be here tomorrow too.

There's not a lot of choices in Volcano, but this is reasonably priced and good quality. The service was straightforward, they don't pretend to be more than what they are, a diner behind a gas station. My wife loved the coconut shrimp and my pork and mashed potatoes were like something you'd get at a cookout, simple and delicious. Good... More

Trying to find a place to eat after sundown in Volcano is tricky. We drove up and down the road and finally decided to stop here. Had a tasty meal - my wife really enjoyed her Pulled Pork Wrap, and I had a good Loco Moco, which was served on a plate instead of in a bowl. The highlight was... More

I have to put this review into perspective...If you're expecting fine dining, this is the wrong place. But, then, it is a cafe, so you shouldn't be expecting a five-star restaurant. If you take it for what it is (basically a diner), it deserves high marks. The service was friendly and the food was tasty. The atmosphere was laid-back, and... More

We came here a little skeptical because of the negative reviews on here, but our experience was absolutely fantastic! Quick, friendly, attentive service with a huge menu to choose from at reasonable (thank goodness!) prices. I had the veggie burger with cheese & avocado and I swear it was one of the best I've ever had. My husband had the... More

After spending most of the day hiking in the Volcano National Park, we were very hungry and found this cafe on Google Map. The food was actually very good and the service was friendly and fast. I was pleasantly surprised that the prices were actually very reasonable, especially for Hawaii. My wife had a teriyaki chicken plate and I had... More

We didn't pack our own food and didn't realize the Volcano House inside the park served food, so we ventured out to Volcano Village and found this place. It was perfect for a quick lunch and close to the park. The teriyaki pineapple burger and a draft Kona Big Wave did the trick for me. Check out my blog for... More
