We bought some lunch 'to go' and all the food was very good. Big sandwiches, big enough to share, made to order at a reasonable price. Very friendly people. We'd recommend this place.

I had breakfast here. The breakfast menu was quite good and is great value. There are picnic bench style tables outside under cover, so it's convenient for a traveler. The staff are friendly. There were loads of locals in the store ordering their breakfast/coffee, including the local park rangers/employees, so for me, that was a passive endorsement in it's self.... More

The portions are huge and everything is fresh. Loved the brownies! Lots of locals buy their lunch here before work. One sandwich was enough for my husband and myself!

This is a small place where you order your food and sit outside at a picnic table or get it to go. The service was quick and friendly. Perhaps I should have ordered a sandwich instead of the rice with an egg on top served in a styrofoam cup. It tasted okay, but I got sick afterwards till mid-afternoon. I... More

Known for big sandwiches but I'm from mainland so had to try the Lau Lau It was good but not enough to return No inside seating only outdoor seating for lotsa people--2 dozen or so. Tiny little space to order, pay and then eat at picnic tables. Nice people work here Lotsa good reviews but average for me.

My wife and I stopped in here looking for a real quick bite between our visit to the volcano national park and kalapana (lava ocean entry). I have a habbit of, and really enjoy, asking the waiter/waitress/shopkeeper for their recommendation when purchasing food from restaurants I haven't been to before. This time was no different and it paid off. The... More

My wife and I stopped off here before a day in the National Park. This was a great place to get a quick sandwich before spending a day hiking and exploring. The food was decently priced, service was quick and friendly, and the location was convenient at just a few minutes outside of the park. I'd definitely recommend it for... More

We weren't sure what options would be available near the park for a lunch to take into the park while hiking. The cafe offers made-to-order sandwiches twice the size of a standard slice of bread. We bought a sandwich for lunch while in the park, then came back later for another to take with us to eat while viewing the... More

This deli is a good stop for midday sandwiches or plate lunches. Order at the counter and sit outside on picnic benches. Ample portions for sharing a sandwich.
