Description: Aloha Bayfront Cafe is the newest fresh food eatery and gifts addition to downtown Hilo in beautiful Historic Old Town, directly across from the Bay. Located at 116 Kamehameha Avenue, the Cafe offers indoor and outdoor seating, a warm friendly and comfortable atmosphere and an idyllic spot to break for lunch. The menu includes fresh salads, gourmet sandwiches, wraps, and an outstanding selection of house specialties including our Key Lime pie in a macadamia nut crust. A Big Island hit is our organic salads & organic micro greens. Stop by for lunch today! Aloha Bayfront Cafe carries a variety of locally made food gift items such as Aikane Plantation Coffee and chocolate Peaberry beans, Hamakua Macnut Company flavored macadamia nuts, award-winning Salty Wahine Gourmet Hawaiian Sea Salts and Hawaiian ghost and Scorpion hot sauces and jams from Big Island Chili Peppers. Also Atebara's locally made gourmet chocolate bark and chips as well as Monkey pod jams and curds from Kauai.

Reviewed May 12, 2014

Nice to find such a clean and beautifully designed cafe in Hilo. A new place for good, organic salads, wraps and sandwiches or breakfast items. Family and locally-owned, too.

“New owners-awesome food!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Quaint little cafe with extremely fresh ingredients. Wonderful "lots a veggie" salad and awesome Kaula pork wrap. New owner, super nice, family ran business. Wish we could visit again, was just passing through. Would highly recommend!
