After not being able to get a seat at Cafe Ono down the road (see separate review) we called in for some Sunday lunch.
We were greeted with a friendly smile and quickly seated in a busy dining room.
The menu is extensive with all of the normal diner offerings - we decided to share a pulled pork and coleslaw wrap and a piece of Mac Nut Pie. Food arrived quickly and was tasty - all you could ask for for $16!

Have only eaten breakfast here and sometimes it's really good and sometimes not so much. There aren't that many places to eat in Volcano, so we go there occasionally for a change. Usually pretty busy - a lot of locals love it.

The sandwich was okay, nothing special. It was expensive but everything in Hawaii is expensive. Overall the food was average to above average and the experience was average.

This was one of a limited number of restaurants available in the evening for dinner. Waited in line for far too long (35 min) with most tables empty (only had a limited number of serving staff working). Wait was so not worth it - the worst food I ever eaten out. Awful. The woman singing and playing the ukulele was fantastic. Only thing that made the experience bearable. Maybe we ordered the wrong food but anywhere else on the Big Island that we ordered fresh fish - we were so pleased........ might be okay if you are looking for pasta or burgers but I felt it was a horrible waste of time and money :(

Food and service were good. Lots of people go there so get there early. We got there at 5:30pm and it was already getting full.
