Hilo Bay Café One wouldn’t think of going to Hilo for a good meal, least of all to a place next to a typical fast food court in a shopping center. But Kim Snuggerood’s Hilo Bay Café stands out, a chic bistro that very simply serves good local food, sourced from the surrounding farms and ranches on the island.
Hawai`i Island grass fed beef makes for an outstanding Blue Bay burger; fresh fish is always on the menu. Crisp and tender lettuces, tomatoes, beets, fennel and other vegetables from island farms go into appetizing salads created by chef Joshua Ketner. The kalua pork sandwich is a signature here, often sold out by the end of the lunch hour. Brews fromMehana in Hilo and Kona Brewing Co. are served, in keeping with the “local sourcing” theme. Hilo Bay Café is all about mostly local, mostly organic, fresh and very delicious food.
