The locovore movement is hot in Hawaii, and has rapidly gained momentum over the years leading to new farm to table restaurants to be established all over the Big Island. All around the island restaurants that feature a menu with locally grown fruits and vegetables, and locally raised fish and meats can be found. While several offer local food at the casual level, many restaurants combine gourmet cooking with locally grown foods. From the lush east to the sunny south side, farm to table restaurants decorate the island.
Out in along the sunny Kona Coast is the Kamuela Provision Company. A lovely farm to table restaurant making a home inside of an ocean front resort, the provision company has evolved along with the Big Island's sustainable needs. Nearby in Waimea is Merriman's. Located in the lush and green historical town, the eatery was one of the first to put a focus on farm to table meals.
Over on the east side in Hilo, the Sweet Cane Cafe is perhaps the leading Big Island farm to table restaurant. The owner of the cafe is a farmer herself, and much of what's sold in the cafe is grown on her own land.
