“A Tasty Little Hole-in-the-Wall.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This tiny little hole-in-the-wall is a great place to stop for a tasty lunch, without having to bite the bullet of the high prices found elsewhere on the island. While the decor was nothing special (and it doesn't really look like much from the outside), the service was fast and friendly, and the sandwiches were delicious! Check it out!

“Decent eats w/out Kohala Coast prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Found this place on our last day on island. Small and seemed very clean. Couple little tables outside but not really where one would want to sit with the road and view of tanks. It fit the bill for us, wanting a decent breakfast without the usual Kohala Coast resort prices. The sweet bread french toast was amazing. My husband and son tried to eat all of mine. My husbands scrambled eggs were good, the hash browns decent, not great but he ate them all and my son's egg sandwich looked good though I did not taste.
In a pinch a decent place to go especially with the small selection available in this area of the island. Would definitely go back for the french toast!

“Great eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The Ahola has a great menu with great food at reasonable prices. This restuarant only serves for breakfast and lunch. Hours are 7 to 4pm. If you need vegan food or a meat filled plate, they have it.

“Awesome Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This little deli is awesome! It might be small but it's huge in what they serve. They have an impressive breakfast and lunch menu. My wife and I had breakfast and lunch there a few times and we always tried something different and everything was wonderful. Their blackened ono dish with their pineapple salsa was very delicious as well as the fish taco. Their tropical island chicken salad with their homemade papaya dressing and the taco salads were so fresh and tasty! They also serve tropical dreams ice cream and the finest shave ice. This place is a must for a wonderful meal and their prices are great!! Will definitely suggest this to everyone!
