Basic soft serve offerings. Best alternative to a DQ that is close by. Nothing to write home about IMP.

We stopped in at Kozmic Cones for lunch and an ice cream snack on the way to Volcanoes NP. After ordering our food and finding the one seat in the back of seating area that wasn't so filthy, we started to eat lunch. After opening my chili dog container, the dog looked like a triple dose of Red 40 was... More

Good local restaurant similar to a Dairy Queen or A&W which was recommended to us by the staff of the Leman Museum. A 1/4 lb hamburger, fries, soda, and sundae was $7. Various sandwiches, fish, and ice cream treats also available. The Kozmic was very popular with the local school crowd.

My wife and I stopped by Kozmic Cones after a meal at Blane's Drive-In (about a block away). This was our first visit to Kozmic Cones. We each ordered a cone, mine in the cone and hers in a dish. I must say, the soft serve was very tasty, almost tasting like a custard. We both really, really enjoyed our... More

We were looking for ice cream after dinner and the GPS could only find places miles away. We decide to drive around Hilo and found Kozmic cones. Very, very happy. We ordered and it was good. Plenty of milk shake for the money and the dining area was clean. The staff was very helpful, patient and kind. A hidden local... More

We enjoyed sundaes here after our dinner. It was your typical soft-serve, in a reasonable portion, and nothing over the top special about it. Similar to a Dairy Queen, though a much smaller selection of items.

I have been a good customer for many years. Lately there have been new hires who are quite rude. Tonight 11/12/2015 @ 7 pm I went to Kosmic Cones to order dinner. I tried for 5 minutes to place an order at the drive through. There was no response. With a line of cars behind me I drove up to... More

The actual cones are good, not great. The real sad part is that ice cream cones are probably 10% of the menu. The rest is plain old food. Meh. I would skip it.

After a day of trekking around Hawaii Volcano National Park my husband and I were looking for a treat to end our day and this place hit the mark! We each had an ice cream treat that reminded us of Dairy Queen but turned up a notch. I had a chocolate and nut dipped cone that was a "small" but... More
