Aloha Walnut123 , We at ohelo apologize for your disastrous experience. The Volcano National Park has been closed for several months. Business declined dramatically, we went from 23 employees to 9 and almost have to give it up. We have had many problem in ramping...More

My second time in Volcano and my second time to the Ohelo Cafe. Cozy and casual interior. I had a Cesar Salad and their pizza of the great. Both were great and very satisfying. Thank you, I’ll be back.

Ate dinner here and shared a starter and pizza. The cauliflower starter was very tasty. Pizzas start as one of 4 or 5 basic bases and you can add extra toppings. These pizzas are authentic Italian pizzas with the thin base. Service was friendly and...More
