Okay, so here is a natural and healthy cafe called Sweet Cane Cafe. It's located near Hilo international airport and it takes about 5 to 10 minutes on drive. You can feel cool breeze. This cafe is open air, and loved by not only tourists but locals.
Hilo town is rooted in healthy conscious based on natural and organic thoughts. A lot of locals try to use made in Big Island ingredients. Sweet Cane Cafe is one of those style cafes.
They offer healthy and tasty menu items made with house-made sugar canes and more fresh products! Also, there are many choices for vegetarians and vegans.
When you first enter the cafe, you can order drinks and foods at the cashier then find the table to sit. You will see lots of house made pastries and cakes around the cashier area. If you don't speak English well, you can point out what you want to try!
In the back of register, there is a open kitchen. Cute & energetic local girls are preparing your order. I like this scene.
Do you think it is "wow" thing that Sweet Cane Cafe has open kitchen and customers are able to look at the kitchen? Because they provide perfect sanitary system to check food conditions and manage it.
Popular vegetable burger ($10)
Omg! the sandwich has full capacity of veggies! They use vegetable patty instead of meat, and the buns are freshly made in house. You can select either taro, chipotle taro, or jalapeño ulu patties. On your right side (photo), this is fresh pressed low cane drink made from house made sugar cane. You would feel relax from natural sweetness of cane. (16oz: $4.50, 20oz: $5.50, 24oz: $6.50)
Acari Bowl (16oz: $9.50, 24oz: $12)
Acai, berreis, banana, mac nuts milk are contained and really smooth taste. On the acai paste, house made granolas, coconuts flakes, and sliced bananas are topped.
You should try house made hot sauces which are excellently matched with burgers and food items!
Also, they offer pasta, gluten free pancakes made with soba powder, various kinds of smoothies and sandwiches.
In the fridge case, there are take out spices and pickles. they are so photogenic!
Inside the cafe, I like the high ceiling, spacious seating area, and outside seats. Parking spaces are enough so you can come by rental car.
