Restaurants and markets are few along the Hamakua Coast, but you won't go hungry. Honoka‘a is large enough to offer a range of eateries, from sit-down Italian to inexpensive local takeout (such as plate lunches), plus a supermarket. Toward the east, you can drive to Hilo to dine out or to stock up on groceries. In between, Papa‘aloa Country Store & Cafe serves terrific meals all day.
