We visited Hilo on vacation. I always like to eat where the locals eat. Cafe 100 had some of the best unique local food. Fast and friendly service. We returned a few times during our stay in Hilo

Cafe 100 is a takeout or eat outside restaurant. Nothing fancy except that the food is excellent. One of the original places for the Loco Moco, it is served a variety of ways. This is excellent local fast food, with very good prices.

Had to try the loco moco with spam for the first time on the island. It was very affordable at $4.25. Very busy so you know its quick island fast food.

Our entire family came here for lunch on our way to the Volcano. I argued for trying Hawaiian food, rather than eating fast food. My husband and I shared a Super Moco Loco, and my son had a Teriyaki Beef plate. It was around $23...More

Totally a fan of anything with gravy! They have lots of variety of local foods and not to mention very inexpensive. All the food is made to order, so no reheating in the microwave to make hot. My favorite is the fish loco, i don't...More

Cafe 100 Loco Moco? Yup, this is THE place that invented it. Is it the best loco moco you will ever eat? Probably not. Is it still REALLY good though? Hell yes. It is also worth making the pilgrimage to pay respect and give thanks...More
