I should have followed my inclination not to even enter a restaurant that had a sign prominently displayed "now hiring for all positions", both for the restaurant and the inn. At least that was true, they do need help. My default restaurant order when I don't think the food will be as advertised on the menu, is a BLT, hard... More

We had breakfast on our way north. Hawaiian style cafe had a line and we didn't want to wait. Waimea coffee company has more like breakfast bagels and coffee and no real place to sit with 5 people. We settled on Paniolo Country Inn. We had breakfast burrrito, okay good size not a lot of flavor, breakfast tacos average and... More

Paniolos is a long standing Waimea institution. Great for a bottomless cup of coffee shop coffee and business meeting or a breakfast and a Bloody Mary if you are a visitor. The menu includes coffee shop favorites with a local twist and there are always a few specials to choose from. The service is cowboy friendly, especially if you are... More

We stopped in here when we found a long line at the Hawaiian Style Cafe and needed breakfast on our way to Hilo. We did get food, but it was nothing special - poor service and greasy food wth no ice in the soda.

We love the Belgian Waffles here. Most places just change the waffle iron and not the batter. The batter should be light and airy and they make the best. Nice family restaurant. Also serves alcohol. This is one of the best places to go to eat.

We were growing tired of the new and sometimes odd food creations offered in so many Waimea restaurants. Paniolo is just good food with a large selection from which to choose. And the price is very reasonable. If you just want to eat normal food, this is the place to visit. We visited twice. I had a delicious chef's salad... More

Traveling from Waipi'o Valley to Kailua-Kona we stopped in for breakfast. The staff was very welcoming and the food was very good, portions were large. Kept us going for the rest of the day!

Great breakfast from $4-10 dollars. Super nice staff, and a laid back atmosphere. I also noticed nice prices on beers, but that's for the next visit.
