The Big Island is the ideal place to eat take out food. Why? There's so much natural beauty and gorgeous outdoor places to enjoy food, that take out on the beach can be better than an oceanfront high end eatery. There are a ton of awesome restaurants on the Big Island, and most allow take out to be taken nearby and enjoyed on a beach, in a national park, or under a tree in the grass. Maximize your time experiencing Big Island beauty, and enjoy great food to go.
Over on the lush east side, Miyo's is a local favorite for home style Japanese food. Offering curries, noodles, and vegetable and meat dishes, Miyo's cuisine is still delicious by the time you get down the street to Liliuokalani Park or Coconut Island. The view of the ocean and Mauna Kea, the towering volcano, provide a gorgeous backdrop for an outdoor meal.
Also in Hilo is Cafe Pesto, and the tried and true Italian eatery's gourmet pizzas make for the perfect picnic meal. Walk a meal across the street to Hilo Bay, or again down to Liliuokalani Park, and have a romantic meal as the sun sets.
In Kona breakfast to go is a favorite at Island Lava Java, where local coffee, breakfast sandwiches and bagels can be taken down the street and eaten while watching the surf. Or, head to a gorgeous beach for the day and eat on the road.
