We stopped here to pick up a picnic lunch for a drive/hike which they packed for us. The sandwiches are huge-they cut the bread loaf lengthwise rather than crosswise. All ingredients were fresh and delicious. Overall a very good value.

We stopped here for lunch to try a little something different from Volcano House. The lunch and value were both excellent. You order inside and sit at a picnic bench outside. We felt like locals!!

Stopped in for a to-go sandwich for the ride back to Kohala Coast after seeing Volcano National Park. As other reviewers mentioned, sandwiches are huge, fillings basic. The bread is fresh-baked and the veggies are fresh and local. Service was quick despite a crowd outside, and the woman who greeted me and took my order was very pleasant (maybe the owner?). Don't be discouraged by reviews of so-so food or service. Keep your expectations in line with the slightly remote location and the island lifestyle and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

We popped in for a quick lunch and enjoyed our choices immensely. We knew from reading the reviews that the sandwiches were large as they slice their home-made bread lengthwise along the loaf, so we each ordered a half sandwich and they were about the size of a normal deli sandwich. I had the macnut cranberry bread with pastrami and my husband had a different bread with tuna salad and both were tasty. We also had some of the macaroni/potato salad so prevalent over there, some chips and bottled water and enjoyed our meal outside in the sun. Prices were quite reasonable too. You can get sandwiches to go and take them elsewhere, so keep them in mind. They had a couple hot dishes of the day, some yummy looking desserts and serve breakfast as well but we didn't experience any of those. Meant to get back there again for a meal but ran out of time. Check them out!

Need a super economical lunch just outside the Kilauea Volcano National Park - come out the entrance and take Hwy 11 towards Hilo, turn left on Huanani Road. straight ahead and you'll find Cafe Ohia in the village of Volcano, where you'll get fresh made sandwiches, salads and soups. Restful stop outside after a visit to the Park.
