There’s A Small Town In Hawaii Known For Its Truly Epic Local Food

In the center of Hawaii Island, far away from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the resorts surrounding Kailua-Kona and the Kohala Coast is a small town full to the brim with local charm. Home to approximately 9,000 residents, Waimea is one of our favorite small Hawaiian towns. It is in Waimea that you will find sprawling ranchlands and plenty of paniolo history, as well as a remarkable restaurant known for its truly mouthwatering local food. This is Hawaiian Style Cafe, and you’ll want to visit.
