My week in photos- Hilo Edition

Got the munchies while I was packing for my trip, so I made these sweet treats (click photo for recipe)

 

Arrived in Hilo for a family vacation

Greeted by the cutest goat at Cafe Ono

Enjoyed the gardens and fabulous lunch at Cafe Ono

 After visiting the volcano, we stopped into Volcano Garden Arts and Cafe Ono for lunch. What an amazing find! The menu is all vegetarian with vegan options and the portions are generous. We ordered the artichoke hummus sandwich along with  the lasagna and ate in the beautiful lush gardens. The food was delicious! No vegan desserts but I did pick up a bag of the organic coconut candy to satisfy my sweet tooth. Strolled through the gallery afterwards and picked up some really unique earrings. Ira Ono (artist,owner) was a delight to meet and has created a wonderful tropical oasis in Volcano Village. I can’t wait to stay in the guest cottage on our next visit. Cafe Ono on Urbanspoon

Swam with the honu (sea turtle) and did some fantastic snorkeling

Over paid for my sweet white pineapple at Abundant Life Natural Foods…saw a bunch the next day at the farmer’s market for only $4.50 each
