Went there two times. I got an omelette the first time and some ginger-mango juice that was out of this world. Also got some jacotiba (?) ginger juice that was mouth watering. Second time I got the avocado eggs benedict. Both were phenomenal. If you’re...More

Mahalo nui loa!! Our locally sourced juices are our best, so thanks for noticing!! I'm glad you got to try the jaboticaba, it's my favorite, kinda tied with lilikoi, too... Hope to see you again soon. Auntie Liz and Uncle Stephen

The biscuits & gravy was blah, it was cornbread biscuits and no flavor with the gravy. Staff was friendly.

Delicious fresh local foods. Wait time for seating and wait time for food was longer than desired. The presentation was nice. Atmosphere is semi-open air which is nice for Hawaii.

Try the local dishes and you won't be disappointed. We went with the mango blintz and the Ono Benedict. Good value and service was good. Small place though so don't be surprised if you can't sit right away. Go during week would be my suggestion.

Yum! One of our guides recommended Pete's Kitchen after we hiked to the lava fields, and it didn't disappoint! I had the veggie breakfast burrito and it was massive. Prices were more in line with mainland meals, which was refreshing. They also have the opportunity...More

We had just arrived in Hawaii the night before and decided to go have breakfast before hitting the grocery. We had read about Pele's Kitchen and headed to Pahoa and give it a try. A very unassuming building, as most are in "downtown" Pahoa, but...More

Aloha, no, we allow our customers to come in when they wish, and first come first served so as to keep out the "have to do this now" vibes, and increase our aloha and ho'olauna. Many of our customers have shared tables and... More

Chef-grown organic produce in most meals, in a rainbow of colors and flavors, in an intimate cafe setting in historic Old Pahoa town. We have wonderfully eclectic tastes for the gourmet as well as vegans who just want "REAL" food. Most of our customers compliment us on how beautiful our food looks as well as how great it tastes, and for the price, it is a deal well worth the drive from Kona! We are in lava zone 1, so, you may have traffic, vog, or Lava to contend with, but you may also have the best time in your life coming here!
