The best cafe/restaurant I have visited on my 4 week trip to Hawaii. Offering many vegan and vegetarian dishes - all full of flavor and based on local produce.

I liked this place so much I ended up eating there on both the days I was in the National Park. One day I had the vegetable lasagna and one day I had the chilli. Both meals were really tasty, with generous portions and loads of vegetables. There were a range of teas and juices and the staff were enthusiastic... More

Is it really ono? Well... in Volcano there aren't lots of options and in relative terms, yes, it's ono. The options are limited but good, service is good and the price is Volcano.

The dinning options in this area are very limited, so I was glad to find this place. The garden is beautiful as it reminded me of Japan. The food was very good. It is home-made style but with a gourmet touch. The quality of the ingredients/food is high, and the portions are very generous. The food combinations are creative. I... More

We have been here before and loved it. Their sandwiches are very good and the adjacent artists lodge is wonderful for gifts. WE love it.

Stumbled upon this when looking for local artist. Saw a sign saying top TripAdvisor restaurant. Fun local menu... Delicious salad and great baked goods. A must for lunch and a walk around beautiful grounds. Say hello to Nobel the rabbit.

I didn't tell my husband it was vegan before we came cause I knew I'd get a look and a groan, and even though I did get a look when he saw the menu we both really enjoyed our lunch here. We both got the curry vegetable soup and it was very hearty and filling. The salad was full of... More

The food at this charming Cafe is always excellent. Best miso soup I have ever tasted. The salads and sandwiches are made with fresh, delicious ingredients. It's quaint, cozy and with wonderful service. The outdoor dining is neat also. The Local island artist's shop, in the same building, is also a very interesting combination of all types of artistic creations.
