Usual Hawaiin cafe furniture, i.e. plastic folding chairs. Food was excellent in regards to local authentic cuisine and portions are more than adequate. Coffee was above average and icy flavored water. Keep you full for the rest of the day.

Picked the Pine Tree Café for a quick lunch before our flight based on the location and reviews. This is a no frills café that serves quality food, made to order. It was crowded when we were there with locals and tourists alike. The food...More

My husband and I had the fried rice loco Moco and the teriyaki chicken. Neither meal was bad by any means, but the food was underwhelming considering all the great reviews that this restaurant has. We will not be returning

Ate Mahi fish sandwiches and then ordered a bento to take the plane later. The locals recommend this place to eat.

We stopped in not knowing what to expect, just hungry. The food was great! A local restaurant, not touristy, and definitely worth visiting.

PTC was about 5 miles north of the touristy section of Ali'i Dr. Plus Matsuyama Market and Kona Mountain Coffee were next door. Got a lot of omiyages from KMC.

The short: Food is overpriced and low quality. Was not impressed at all. The staff was rude, which didn't help. We definitely would not recommend this place and we will not return. The long: We were told that this place would have authentic Hawaiian food,...More

We ate here twice on different days - once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both times, the food was good, but I think the breakfast was better. Even though we eat portugese sausage, eggs and rice at home in AZ, the portugese sausage here...More

Fast and fresh. It was hard to choose but my family had a variety of choices and they all looked really good. No complaints.

Not yet, hopefully soon!! They do have tons of menu items to choose from, not to mention their daily specials on their board by the cashier.
