We loved the feel of this cafe. It was really low key and popular with the locals as well (the whole restaurant took part in singing happy birthday to a little girl :-)). We had saimin (highly recommended especially on a cold day) and a fish sandwich and enjoyed them both. We also split a passion fruit cheesecake for dessert.... More

Pancakes and eggs with local jams and sourced ingredients makes this a fun spot for Brekey. Not upscale but quite local and friendly.

Strolled in at 1015am, left by 11. Nope, we weren't pushed out, it's a laid back place, but if you're in a hurry, rest assured you'll be taken care of quickly. We had the French toast (huge Texas toast sized, sugar sprinkled goodness with sweet honey butter); and the special omelette- with sausage and cheese. The roasted potatoes that came... More

Service was great. I had the LocoMoco my wife had a burger, both were great. Very refreshing to be so pleased across the board in such a touristy area around Volcanos NP.

Nice enough place. Very few patrons when we were there. Service was quite friendly and attentive. Staff seemed like a happy crew, since we could hear them laughing at things in the background. We had a terriyaki beef and fish and chips. Portions were large and we took some home. Their prices were quite fair, considering the limited options in... More

The pulled pork is wonderful. Had a couple other plates while in the area and all great. Very casual. Many diners came in with children. A must eat at if you go to the volcano. This is located in the Volcano Village.

We both had the double burger and it was good. The cleanliness of the restaurant could be improved. Popular with locals, not fancy, but a local favorite

Good choice for breakfast recently . 3 of us shared two hearty breakfast entrees while the 3rd ordered a side of one egg. It was plenty. We got one order of mahi mahi and eggs with home fries and a biscuit and the 2nd entree was a large cheese and veggie omelet with home fries and toast which was also... More
