Very small restaurant next to the Hilo Farmer's Market. The food is very good, a reservation is a must. Only breakfast and lunch is served.

We loved this spot in Hilo. The waffles are so good and the benedict was great. Best breakfast on our vacation by far. Very small place so make a reservation. Paul was there and so friendly.

We wanted to try this place so bad but there are literally 3 tables. We did not know that so were unable to eat here but if we were back in the area we would make reservations.

We adored (and devoured) our 2 meals at Paul’s place. We liked it so much our first day, we had to make reservations to come back - the next available seating was 4 days later! It’s a home kitchen staffed sparingly with gourmet flavor and style. Paul and his family are warm and welcoming - you can see they truly enjoy what they are doing. We are usually not the type to order heavy but the Belgian Waffles were perfectly light, with crisp edges and had amazing flavor.

We went here wanting a substantial lunch, but the owner greeted us and explained that all they were serving at 12:30 was coffee and waffles bc their morning was so busy. He was a polite, sweet man who cared about recommending other local places (we were in the mood for more than just coffee and waffles, although I’m sure his would have been the best if one was craving that). Even though we didn’t actually eat there, the owner’s warmth and kindness were off the charts. Will def try his place again when we can.
