Hilo Bay Cafe Restaurant Review

: It’s not easy to characterize this healthy-gourmet bistro, an offshoot of Hilo's Island Natural Market health-food store. Where else might you find shrimp and grits on the same menu as praline-macadamia nut crusted scallops? Items include pita bread stuffed with chicken salads, or ahi poke appetizers, poached shrimp and asparagus salad, and vegetarian selections such as potpie and sweet potato flax burger. There’s a sushi bar, too. The inexpensive and diverse menu showcases an abundance of organically grown, local produce. The meats are of the free-range, antibiotic-free variety. And while the wine list may not be pages long, the choices offered are selected with care and sensitivity.
