Very tasty. Menu states level of spice. My husband asked for 5, but basically his food was not spicy. After a couple of restaurants, we think Hawaiians don't use spice. Nevertheless, the food was very good and reasonably priced. I had the beef and broccoli,...More

We stopped in for breakfast. They didn't seem super busy, but the waitress kept commenting (to other staff) about how swamped they were. Service was pretty slow. Had to ask for refills on coffee because no one came back by. Couple of our orders were...More

A great place to eat, great service with a smile and quick service as well! The cafe is close to the Volcano Park and is a good size. It seemed to be a popular place and we would definitely go back.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed lunch here - yummy food (pulled pork tacos, burger) and an especially delish smoothie.

Took over 25 minutes to be seated even though the restaurant was only 1/2 full. Took over an hour before we got our food. We ordered when the waitress finally came to the table. The food was decent. The staff quite rude.

Lava Rock Cafe is a nice, little restaurant just minutes from Volcanoes National Park. If you're hungry after a long day of hiking and touring, it will be a good choice. It is not fancy but worth a stop, especially given the limited options in...More

Excellent place for breakfast when you are visiting Volcano National Park. It is in the village of Volcano just a few blocks off the main highway. The decor is a bit basic but the food and service are top notch. We each had the French...More

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.

Volcano Lava Rock Cafe is a restaurant. Think you have this mixed up with a B&B.
