The ride along the coastal road to the cafe is stunning as are some of the ocean parks along the way. The cafe is casual and friendly with a good choice of food. I ordered fish and chips (ono and potato waffles) with lilikoi lemonade (approx $15) and it was well cooked and good value. There's a little grocery shop next to it if you need supplies.

Visited the lava flow at Kalapana. Stopped at the cafe for some refreshment after a stroll in the hot sun on the black lava. Decent food, friendly staff, convenient location. Enjoy!

After a drive from Hilo to Kalapana to visit our coconut that we planted many years ago. We started to walked out toward the ocean on the new beach looking for our coconut with the other hundreds of small coconut palms planted by people who wanted to recreate the beauty of the coconut palm lined beach which was covered by lava in 1991. It started to rain so we cut our search short and we were hungry and wanted a quick lunch. The Cafe was right there at the end of the road. Boy were we surprised. The food was so good and hugh. Every dish we saw come by looked great. My daughter and I split a sandwich and fries. Plenty of food for the two of us.

The manager at Gay Hawaii B&B recommended Kalapana Village Cafe. Since it was walking distance I left my car at the B&B and walked the short walk over. Had the fish platter with fries and mac salad. The grilled fish was moist and fresh. Served with a fresh lemon wedge. Walking out toward the ocean you cross lava fields which were created in 1991. New earth! At the beach there are hundreds of small coconut palms planted by people who want to recreate the beauty of the coconut palm lined beach which was covered by lava in the '89 - '91 flow.
