Aloha Theater and Aloha Angel Cafe in Kainaliu, Kona, Hawaii



I thought I'd talk a bit about a local South Kona Landmark. The Aloha Theater's been around for ages. They hold plays, host musicians, and screen the occasional movie (usually independant films, we saw "My Big fat Greek wedding" there when it was too small to hit the big theaters).

There's been a restaurant there since we've moved here, it was originally a breakfast and lunch spot and added dinner after an ownership change and slight name change to it's current Aloha Angel Cafe. Anyway, it's long been known for good food and Hawaiian time service (slow service is very common here). We decided to give it a try the other week and had a great breakfast and prompt service. They put out a nice breakfast, Pat and I both had one of the day's specials... this day it was Prime rib, eggs and potatoes... yummy... it ran in the 13 buck range if I recall correctly. I wouldn't hesitate to return, especially if the service continues to be that prompt.

Hi Steve - the Theater seems like quite an interesting place and will be added to our database in due course. As I'm sure visitors to the Kailua-Kona pages at trivago will also enjoy your blog, I've placed a link to it. Some stunning photos btw - congratulations!
Greetings from Cape Town,

I'd agree with you until the last couple of times I've been there. I'd hadn't eaten there for three years or so prior to this meal because of my experiences of poor service with them. I've had pretty good service and food the two times I've been there this year. I don't know if they've turned it around or not, but my recent experiences have been better. Time will tell if it goes under or not.

Aloha,

Steve
