“Good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My girlfriend and I stopped here after trying a couple restaurants and being disappointed.
The vegetarian chili is some of the best I've had ever.
The sandwich was your basic sandwich, but it was huge and delicious!
Great place to eat.

“Good place for sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We were stuck on a hot day looking for a place for lunch . There are limited choices here in Volcano.
The place is small. You order and sit down outside.
The place is nothing special, but the food was a good value.

“Great wholesome sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

A hole in the wall cafe with some outdoor table, they make exceptionally good sandwiches without the fuss (chips, over complicated bread etc) which after being in US for almost a week was a welcome relief. Choose from roast beef, turkey, pastrami or tune and load up with yummy salad items and choice of several cheeses with mayo and mustard.

Generous sized perfect for lunch on the go

“Super friendly family run cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Stopped in after a four hour hike. Had a delicious Kua (local) coffee and tasty vegetarian chili. Recommend this place before or after hiking the volcano park. Great snacks, drinks and/or hiking picnic items. Very inexpensive.

Very casual!!!

“Affordable breakfast & nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

I don't know why this cafe has $$$$ on TripAdvisor. We found it to be affordable. We spent less than $30 for breakfast for four...and snacks for the day. That is not expensive (especially if you compare the prices with the local resorts). The people who run the cafe are super friendly. Also, It is obvious that our money was going to locals rather than a corporation, which is always a plus. They even had a fundraiser for a local third grade class (no pressure - they didn't even mention it, but they have it displayed on the counter). :)
