We were looking for breakfast. Picked the restaurant because it was recommended by Fodors (Sorry TripAdvisor).

It looked a little "messy/scruffy" but took a table. The two waiters inside ignored us from the start. No coffee offered, my wife ant to use the rest rooms. Disgusting, filthy…..

Still no service after her return we thought a quick exit would be prudent.

My son lives about 30 minutes outside of Hilo. We had to wait on a ride, and got hungry. He told me that was the worst place for eating; but I ignored him. I ordered a simple burger, and a coffee. The burger was not edible, and the coffee had lots of ground coffee floating around.
The owner is very nice, but I cannot believe he serves food so bad.

We ate here two times. Great little place. I had a delicious and out of this world waffle with whip cream and syrup. Super relaxed atmosphere and the owner is super friendly and generous. Stop here for a great breakfast!

All their eggs are souffle style, light fluffy and yummy. Best hot chocolate ever. Nothing fancy here, just a great affordable little coffee shop. Service was great and a nice breeze blows through the place. Cash only!!
