We read the reviews, we figured what better way to honor the trip than eat what the locals eat. First off..you really need to keep your eyes open because this restaurant is tucked away in a little strip mall at the end. You'll probably see people standing outside waiting to get in. Don't let it discourage you. You have to... More

Stopped by Hawaiian Style Cafe for breakfast while relocating from Mauna Lani to Volcano National Park. We shared Banana/Macadamia Nut French Toast with turkey bacon & Portuguese Sausage. It was a great start to our day. The service as very friendly. Afterwards, we visited Akaka Falls and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens on the way to VNP.

We were thinking about going to Ken's house of pancakes but we detoured to this place and boy we were in for a treat! The Hilo location opens for lunch and dinner... More

Some of the best breakfast food I have ever eaten. I was with a group of 14 and there was a great variety of choices and it was all delicious. Everyone was happy. Plus the service was outstanding: fast, friendly and very attentive. You seldom get service this good in any restaurant. I most highly recommend The Hawaiian Style Cafe.

Thank JIQPublic
