Though I haven't had the opportunity to stay here, I have spoken to the owner, Gaye, at length. She is such a dear lady. The setting at Mountain Meadow Ranch is breathtaking. I can't wait to book the cottage for my family the next time we're on the Big Island!

What a lovely warm and cozy B&B. Jacqueline was very gracious and helpful! Our car broke down on the way and she even offered to come and get us. Luckily we had AAA and were able to be towed and she referred us to her mechanic Ignacio's. It all worked out fine. We enjoyed the Birds Eye Room, the ambiance, the great organic breakfast, and coffee. It was fun talking story with Jacqueline and Susan We are looking forward to our next visit there.
A beautiful hidden treasure in Waipio. Quaint, yet elegant. Jacqueline's breakfasts are to die for. Good company. Loved it!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the Birds Eye Room, which was lovely. Jacqueline was a wonderful host with great recommendations for hikes, restaurants, stores, etc. in the area. We also really enjoyed the breakfasts, especially the fresh smoothies and the fresh fruit. There's a resident cat, but the place is kept spotless so my husband, who's pretty sensitive to cats, didn't have any reaction at all. We'll stay here again if we're back on the big island.

After an exhausting hike down to Waipi'o Valliey, we were starving on our way back to Kona. We saw this place was open and took a chance on it! It was killer delicious! The calzones were amazing! I had the Italian sausage and devoured it in minutes... I think I might have licked the plate! The most amazing thing happened after we finished eating: the one and only Miss Roseanne Barr walked in and sat down to eat. She agreed to take a picture with us. (She ordered the Greek Calzone so I'm sure it must be delish). I will never forget this place definitely the best meal I've had on any of the islands!
Had a great dinner here tonight. Friendly service, food was delicious and reasonable price. Very fresh salad and great calazone -- very reasonable $$.
Read all the reviews on yelp, and since this town only had so many restaurants to choose from, we planned to eat at Cafe il Mondo - and are we glad we did. We had a GREAT meal here. When we first walked in, I was a little skeptical about the food, but when our waitress came over we completely fell in love with her and the place. She was adorable. We ordered the antipasto salad and a calzone. They were both DELCIOUS. And their pesto??!!! OMG - to die for. The night we were there, there were 3 people running the place and I think they were all under 21 yrs. They were all very nice, very helpful and working their butts off. My husband and I were really impressed. Don't forgot that you can go across the street to grab a bottle of wine. A must stop for anyone traveling through Honokaa.

Really good pizza!!! Great crust and sauce. Great place for lunch. Reasonable prices. Good and friendly service. I'd take a pic but it's already devoured!
We had some of our best times at The Landing when we were staying in Honokaa. The patrons were friendly and we had superb Pizza - some of the best we've had at very reasonable cost. As a matter of fact, the single slice (1/5 of a 18" pizza) is enough for most people. We had good service, and, in addition to the good pizza, great beer. It is a bar, so if you hate sports on TV, stay away. However, if you like karaoke including Hawaiian songs, sung by local folks, you are in luck!
As a twenty-something from the mainland this place is great. Satisfied my pizza craving and they have a good selection of beer and bar. Prices are fair in comparison to anything else on the island. I'll be back even though I am actually forty. ;)

Yep. This place is the shizzle. Delicious food (though not a lick of it is healthy), great (clean and modern) atmosphere, and a cute little gift shop to boot. My hubby had the fish n chips. He didn't think they were that amazing, but I couldn't stop eating the chips, if that tells you anything. I had some kind of wrap. Again, it wasn't that amazing, but the side of freshly fried potato chips was AWESOME. And then there are the malasadas. This is the only place to get them on the island. Fresh, hot, sugary, and oozing with jelly. Lord help me if I ever return to Kona because I will probably overdose on those bad boys the next time I am there.
As I was planning my tip to Hawaii , this was one of places I wanted to go on big island. Cute place of Honokaa town, we managed to find this bakery by asking locals multiple times after losing cell phone signal resulted in no map and gps which was our life line on this trip.....However, I was extremely surprised to see how many people were in there under heavy rain that day. : ) Three of us had plain malasadas here. ( we learned the lesson at Leopard's that filling would destroy whole texture and the flavors of the dough itself) We really enjoyed theirs after a long tiring drive. It was nicely portioned and had great densed texture, yet offered good amount of airness. Its hard to compare to Leopard's, because they are totally different in a good way in my opinion. Moreover, I was quite shocked by their reasonable strong and flavorful, bold yet balanced coffee to accompany those sweet goodies. For about a dollar and a change, it really worth the cup. Being from NY, I have had pretty bad coffee from those random diners, so this was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend to try out what tbey are famous for. - If you are visiting from outside and relay on cell phone gps, try to make sure you map out the place in offline version, as the service in the area was almost non-existant. ( we had Att, Verizon, and t-mobile)
Visited this place as part of a family vacation a couple weeks ago and the food was good, nothing crazy to rave home about. However, my low review is due to the fact that my cousin who has very, very severe food allergies to eggs/dairy specifically told the cashier to leave out the egg on her loco moco bowl. And when the food came out there was an egg of course, we showed the cashier that the order said "no egg" and that my cousin will need a brand new bowl because the egg contaminates the other food inside of the bowl and that the egg must NOT just be scooped out. After emphasizing that we needed a new loco moco bowl so many times, her new order without an egg came out. However, after a few bites into the bowl she saw a bunch of cooked egg whites. Luckily she didn't eat that much to receive any rashes yet. The malasadas were tasty and fluffy but due to the lack of IQ the customer service has we for sure won't recommend this place to any family or friends.

My family and I came here to get a quick plate lunch. We knew this was going to be fast food, but we didn't expect quite this level of quality. My chicken katsu was drenched in oil and barely edible. My step-mother's saimin was bland. I don't remember what my dad got, but he didn't finish it. To say the least, I wouldn't recommend this place.
The food is barely edible. Old grease for fries, greasy sandwiches. The lady at counter was not friendly. I asked for something to wipe the table with, expecting a napkin. I was handed the filthiest dish rag I have ever seen! . Attached is a picture of the ketchup bottle I was given. This place is nasty. Avoid!!
Awful experience. Food is barely eatable. So greasy ! Waitress at counter is unfriendly. This restaurant was the only opened on eastern sunday Oh ... Restroom are disgusted !
