[Big Island Day 2] Lunch @ Cafe Pesto

After exploring several parks along Kohala Coast, we headed to Cafe Pesto for lunch, a nice Italian restaurant.

Cafe Pesto: Pacific Crab Cake Salad & Oriental al Pesto Pizza

We had fresh fruit juice to start. I probably had the blend with guava and passionfruit, which was very refreshing. The salad was good, too, and I especially liked the crab cake. We couldn’t finish the pizza, which came with basil pesto, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and Japanese eggplant.

I have to say that I didn’t have a strong impression about the food here. Maybe the reason was that I had a very nice dinner at Napua the previous night, or it was because we didn’t order the right food. It is also possible that the dinner menu may be way better than the lunch one. Nevertheless, I think it is still a decent restaurant worth coming again.
