Volcano Rainforest Retreat B&B’s Favorite Restaurants
Our two favorites, both in Volcano Village, locally owned and operated and within two minutes from our Volcano B&B retreat, are Thai Thai for dinner and Café Ono for lunch. Volcano is a rural area with limited dining.
Our all time favorite in Hilo is Hilo Bay Café where we are continuously inspired by their creative daily specials, drinks and appetizers. We are regulars every Thursday evening after shopping for supplies for the retreat. We enjoy dining out experiences that offer an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, fun, friendly service and unique, delicious cuisine.
We also enjoy Café Pesto on the gorgeous bay front, with its high ceilings, expansive windows and contemporary cuisine. Open air restaurant Pineapples on Kilauea Avenue is perfect for lunch or dinner.
