Quick simple comfort food on the cheap. Breezy covered outdoor seating. In case you don't know already- Loco moco is cooked egg on top of hamburger patty on top of rice, covered with gravy unless you ask for it on the side. Just regular Loco Moco was under $4! There was a large variety of Loco Moco using different types... More

This restaurant has the best Loko Moko in Hawaii. I use to come here in the Eighties and still do when I come to the Big Island.

On a day trip to Hilo from Kona, my husband wanted to go to Café 100 for lunch as it was highly recommended in our Lonely Planet book of the Big Island. You walk up to the outdoor ordering window and choose from a very extensive menu which was a little overwhelming. I chose the Island Girl mainly because of... More

We had their loco moco and katsu curry. Gravy tasted good except that it was too salty for me. The value for money was so good we went back for breakfast the next day. Will definitely come back here if we’re back in Hilo.

My husband tried the loco moco bacon and enjoyed it, I had a burger that was tasty! Not overly expensive walk up ordering.

We stopped in to the cafe 100 for a quick bite. My husband loves to eat there each time we come to Hilo. It was far better than I remembered. They have 32 types of Moco Locos. Better than Baskin Robbins! Nothing fancy, just great taste. It's Hawaiian fast food, though I dislike using those words because of the "trash... More

We tried lunch. Food was way too oily and overcooked. Service was friendly, and food came right off, but I do not recommend this for anyone on a low fat diet.

We stopped in for a quick breakfast. The food definitely wasn't the best in town, but probably the most affordable and definitely did the trick for us. The outdoor covered seating was pleasant.

We each got the breakfast special. Full meal for less than $10 a person. Plenty of locals and continously steady flow of people but it didn't take long at all.
