Since we were staying in a resort at Waikoloa, everything around that area is on the expensive side and lacking the local flavours. Saw this place while driving up the coast. It's cosy and has some interesting menu items (including various forms of loco moco!)....More

The shave ice here is large--even the child's portion--and is guaranteed to produce multiple brain freezes. The fruit-flavored syrup toppings are super sweet. The ice cream is also delicious. Highly recommended after you have lunch at one of the restaurants in the same complex.

Had breakfast and lunch here several times. Low key friendly unpretentious but the food rocks. Blackened Ono is awesome. Omelettes are great too. People are the nicest. Highly recommend.
