Hilo Bay Café

Hilo Bay Café
In the midst of a suburban shopping mall is this upscale, elegant eatery. It was created by the people from the Island Naturals Market & Deli, located on the other side of the shopping center. When you enter, the cascade of orchids on the marble bar is the first thing you see.
 Mellow jazz wafts from speakers, and plush chairs at low tables fill out the room. The creative menu ranges from house-made ravioli (stuffed with artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, and cream cheese) to potato-crusted fresh catch to grilled pork loin with bordelaise sauce. Lunch features salads (such as seared ahi Caesar), sandwiches (think grilled free-range chicken breast), and entrees (such as flaky-crust vegetarian potpie, slow-cooked pork barbecue ribs, and crispy spanakopita). There are also a terrific wine list and great martinis. Don't miss eating here
