Fodor's Review

Café Pesto. In the sleepy harbor town of Kawaihae, the original Café Pesto ranks as a hidden find. Gourmet, wood-fired pizzas are topped with eclectic goodies like pork and pineapple, chili-grilled shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, and cilantro crème fraîche. The menu also includes Asian-inspired pastas and risottos, fresh-fish entrées, and an excellent array of salads, including the Volcano Mist, garnished with crisp, local onion rings. Local brews and a full-service

bar make this a good place to end the evening, and the lounge-y bar area with sofas and comfy chairs provides a nice place to grab a drink while waiting for a table. Kawaihae Harbor Shopping Center, 61-3665 Akoni Pule Hwy. (Hwy. 270), Kawaihae, HI, 96743. 808/882–1071.
