Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Chef-grown organic produce in most meals, in a rainbow of colors and flavors, in an intimate cafe setting in historic Old Pahoa town. We have wonderfully eclectic tastes for the gourmet as well as vegans who just want "REAL" food. Most of our customers compliment us on how beautiful our food looks as well as how great it tastes, and for the price, it is a deal well worth the drive from Kona! We are in lava zone 1, so, you may have traffic, vog, or Lava to contend with, but you may also have the best time in your life coming here!

My husband and I stopped here after a lava boat tour on our way to the airport and we could not be happier we drove by this place. Cute atmosphere, very pleasant owner/staff, and the food is incredible. Fresh everything. Homemade everything. This place is an absolute must!!!!

I can't get enough of this place. I have been eating here almost every day since I arrived and the food keeps getting better. I have tried a few other places in town but I always end up back here. I have tried almost everything on the menu and I have yet to find something I don't like. Every dish comes with a side of Aloha and boy do they know how to serve it. I would give it an 11 out of 10.

This place is such a gem and well worth the drive to Pahoa. Absolutely delicious food, made from scratch everyday by chef Steven, and awesome service from Liz-- the coolest chick in town! Killer breakfast. Gluten free pancakes with coconut syrup = heaven. The vegan plate is amazing. The mojito garlic fries are excellent. Lilicoi Ono is yum yummy. And they have sushi! You've got to try Keiji's sushi! I love this little restaurant. I have eaten there a dozen times and will keep going back as long as the doors are open.

Pele's is the spot for breakfast! Atleast once a week I have to get their clasic breakfast: 2 eggs (i get with cheese), bacon, hashbrowns, and homemade toast with homemade guava jelly.

Not to mention all their baked goods are super yummy as well.... YOu gotta try their Puna Pie, Haupia and lilikoi!

Aunty Liz is ALWAYS a sweet heart. She definately serves everything with a side of ALOHA!
Oh and I almost forgot she is alway making fresh, local juices and teas!

This place is a MUST TRY!
