Cafe Pesto Hilo Bay Location

Long considered an innovator of our ethnically diverse Island cuisine,

both the award winning Hilo Bay and Kawaihae Harbor family restaurants have a well earned reputation for food that is wonderfully fresh, creatively presented and afford-ably priced.


Come visit turn of the century Hilo – a city that has survived earthquakes, eruptions and devastating tsunamis. Cafe Pesto is a must-do culinary adventure where diners can drift back into time … awakening to the present only by the colorful and contemporary Island cuisine.
