This is one of the best places to eat in Volcano. I would recommend reservations or showing up to stand in line when they first open. The place is small, and it gets super crowded, because it's so popular. That should not keep you away...More

Don't judge a book by it's cover. This place serves gourmet food at reasonable prices. Recommend the pizza.

This place was probably one of the best meals we've had in The Big Island. Their seafood pasta was amazing and so was their pizza, it was very affordable for Hawaii and they're open pretty late. If you're around the area this is one place...More

We commented on several occasions that this was such a wonderful caliber of restaurant for the small town that Volcano is. We ate here a couple of times during our stay and enjoyed their thin crust pizzas, spare ribs, etc. If you are there and...More

I don't know if they have a kid's menu. This is a smaller restaurant that I wouldn't take a child under 12 to, as this cafe is more appropriate for couples who want to have a nice fine dining experience with conversation... More
