We tried their Kalbi ribs as a side order. It was cut into individual ribs and serviced in a cup. They were moist, but not the best we've had. It is mostly take out with a few tables inside and outside in a covered area.

We didn't know that almost everything local closed on Sunday. We left the Mauna Kea Hotel on Sunday morning in search of a local breakfast. We got an omelette and pancakes. Great prices. Local people. I think we were the only tourists there. This is between Hawi and Kapaau on the main highway.

No other customers except 2 ladies and my group were their. Left the Cafe and down the road realized my purse was missing and returned to the Cafe... More

Stay away from the burgers. They are puny (but also cheap). The more traditional Hawaiian food is better.

While exploring the big island Hawaii on our recent visit, we asked about eateries that were locally owned and were directed to the CSC Cafe. This is a small cafe with about 8 tables, not big on atmosphere but definitely big on taste and portion size! Diana and her family were extremely friendly and her mom still does much of... More

This restaurant business is so friendly to all customers and sooo very clean with no rats in the kitchen, etc. All employees are so great at their work duties. Its too bad all isn't receiving cash. Its too bad this business will be getting out of business due to debt. Thats what happens when you don't have everyone on pay... More

I took my family to the CSC Cafe for breakfast before "flumin' da ditch" at Kohala Ditch Adventures. Not only is the cafe conveniently located near KDA, but the food is very good and the prices are very reasonable. They serve the breakfast items that my family likes, such as pancakes, omelettes, and hash browns. Everything tasted great, especially the... More

This is a small restaurant that everyone would like to have in their town. Lot's of local flare and a huge menu. Everything taste so wonderful. Atmosphere is down to earth, seems everyone is family and you get treated as family also even if that is your first time there. If you dont see what you want on the menu,... More

Blueberry pancakes rocked and it was the local "uncle" hangout. Not the typical restuarant as it was full of locals.
