Eat Here

Take a break from shopping and enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks… Fresh, local foods can be found everywhere in downtown Hilo, with dozens of eateries serving a variety of cuisines reflecting our cultural ‘mixed-plate’ heritage. Downtown offerings include Hawaiian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Vietnamese, Pacific-Rim cuisine, Indian, gluten-free, vegetarian and more! Try an ice-shave on a hot day, or a bento filled with Asian favorites. Many eateries offer live music in the evenings.
