“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is a gem. The food was absolutely great, tasty, healthy, fresh. I don't think that I ever tasted in a restaurant a salad as fresh, crunchy, it seemed picked that very moment from a well cared garden. We had salad and soup, both perfect. The cookies that we bought to go were out of this world too. We remember this place with a lot of pleasure as something unique that added to the great memories we had in The Big Island.

“Unique place, organic food with much character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Unique vegetarian restaurant with a small artisans gallery and Ernest the goat on property. Grounds and people are colorful! Delightful overall experience. Food excellently prepared and entrees include both soup and organic salad with homemade dressings. A gem to add to your wonderful Volcano area experience! Don't miss this one- enjoy !!

“A delight-filled experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

While visiting volcanoes we stopped for a nice lunch and left with so much more! This incredible place is an art gallery with wonderful local art, a great healthy restaurant that
Features vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options that are all in a unique setting. We strolled the grounds and visited Earnest the goat, a tree sanctuary (which was like a temple built out of trees) and saw some uniquely artistic landscapes. This is a spirit-filled place that must be added to your itinerary! We purchased some local art that they are shipping back for us. OH, and did I mention that the food was super delicious?

“Excellent fresh food in lovely gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Only downside of this lovely little cafe is that it closes quite early. We visited for lunch but would happily have returned for dinner had it been open. Not an extensive menu but good enough choice to satisfy most tastes. Food appeared to be homemade, was lovely and fresh and reasonable value.
