Others in my party wanted plate lunch, but I went for a cheese burger. Was pleased that it was really good, best I had on the island.

Great local food and it is close to the airport. Gives L&L competition. But everything is really good especially their mix combo.

5 minutes from Kona airport. Local place, good food and large portions. My 18 y.o. son had the fried Ono and couldn't finish it - a testament to portion size. I had the beef teriyaki plate and it was quite good. Daughter had a burger and loved it. Moderately priced for Hawaii. Great place to grab a bite after a... More

The Hawaiians certainly know how to eat lunch! Lunch at The Pine Tree Cafe definitely maintains the high standards the locals expect. I had Kalbi short ribs. That makes Kalbi for lunch at three different restaurants and three days in a row, and the Kalbi did not disappoint here either. Everything seems cooked to order, the portions are generous. The...
