Lava Rock Café
This is an affordable place to grab a sandwich or a coffee and check your email (Wi-Fi is free with purchase of meal) before heading to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The homey, sit-down diner caters to families, serving up heaping plates of pancakes and French toast for breakfast. For lunch, burgers highlight the menu—everything from bacon-cheese to turkey to Paniolo burgers made with Hawaii grass-fed beef. There are also generous-sized sandwiches, loco moco, and soups, plus beef or chicken teriyaki. Try the haupia cake for dessert. The venue now has a full bar where draft beer is served. Credit cards accepted. No dinner Sun. and Mon.
