Huge menu. Makes you wonder if they can do it all well. We visited on a day that our Thai curry favorite is closed. Good burger. Very busy at lunchtime. Lots of locals.

While visiting Kona, if your hungry there while visiting Costco try out the Pine tree café. Simple place but very good food.

We got the shrimp omelet and the tuna poke bowl. The food came quickly and it was very good. Great place close to Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park and the Kona airport.

This is one place the locals like. It's one step up from fast food, serving take-out style local dishes (you can eat-in too). Many variations on the traditional plate lunch (a meat, plus rice and mac-salad).

Nice burgers, BLTs and other sandwiches. Better than we expected for a quick stop. Free Wifi available.

Pine Tree Cafe, conveniently located just outside of Kailua Kona airport. Grab your bags, hop in your car, get a bite to eat, on to your business meeting. Great variety of American foods served local style.

Breakfast, lunch & dinner near the airport. Not many other food establishments nearby. Good local food. Nothing vegan though. Nice desserts too.

My wife had a vegetarian omelet and I had "Carla's" omelet with Portuguese sausage & veggies. Both were plentiful and thus satisfying, but were nothing out of the ordinary. Fine for what it is, just not special.

Close to airport, easy stop, good menu. Stop here after you arrive for breakfast/lunch, you won't regret.

Not yet, hopefully soon!! They do have tons of menu items to choose from, not to mention their daily specials on their board by the cashier.
