Cafe 100

Published in Stores & Restaurants

Address:  969 Kilauea Ave, Hilo, HI 96720


Classic cafe that is a favorite with the locals.  This is where you go for comfort food on a budget.  It is right in the middle of town, just minutes from so many attractions.  A local dish that you need to try at least once is the Moco Loco.  It consists of a couple scoops of rice, a beef patty, gravy with easy-over eggs on top.  It’s not complicated, but a dish born in Hilo, Hawaii.

The portions are large and the prices are great.  Instead of going to Burger King or out for pizza, hang with the locals and enjoy a local dish.  You will work off the calories traveling and hiking.

The cafe is named by the founder being a member of the 100th battalion in WWII.  As a battalion with Japanese Americans in WWII it was the most decorated battalion for its size.  For a great story of the history of the restaurant click
