177 Kilauea Avenue Hilo, HI  96720 (808) 930-WIKI (9454) Open Monday – Saturday: 10:30 am – 8:00 pm; Sunday: 10:30 am – 7:00 pm “Yappy Mondays” – Dine with your pet on Monday (all day!) and receive 10% off all regular-priced items! Website: http://www.gowikifresh.com/   MARCH 27, 2017 Guest Review (with permission) from Kirsten J. – The lanai is very clean and spacious. I was the only person there for a while, and there were no other dogs which participated in Yappy Hour that evening. Many restaurant patrons walked by and came over to pet Kia, and staff was very sweet to her. Several employees offered to fill her water bowl, making me feel very welcome. The only drawback to the lanai is the location — it’s right on busy Kilauea Ave. — so it’s not like there’s a great view and there is some car noise. It’s not terrible though and after a little while I stopped noticing. There’s also plenty of parking.  The lanai is completely covered, so it’d...

Website: hilocoffeemill.com and on Facebook March 7, 2017 – When a business owner writes to me and asks that I share their dog-friendly business with viewers, this sure means a lot.  Mahalo to Hilo Coffee Mill (HCM) owner Katherine Patton for allowing responsible dog owners and their leashed dogs to enjoy this beautiful location, which can be seen along Volcano Highway when driving from Hilo to Volcanoes National Park.  HCM has lots of grassy areas to walk your dog as well as lots of outdoor seating.  Dogs are welcome anywhere on the 24-acre property any time.  They must remain on leash, especially since there are many cage-free chickens and a cat that roam around the property.  On Saturdays, there is a small farmers’ market with great food, plants, fresh produce, live music, and more!  Market updates can be viewed on their calendar.  As...

Volcano Winery

***April 2017 Update: I was contacted by one of our viewers who said someone arrived at the Winery with five dogs who were not under control and who chased the cats who reside on the property.  I confirmed with the Winery owners on July 8, 2017 that the Winery still allows friendly, leashed dogs, but as always, please be extremely considerate and grateful (I tip 30 to 50% any time a place accommodates me and my dog)…Call ahead or at least leave your dog outside and check with management first before arriving with your dog and ask if there’s an area that would be best for you and your pup.  Incidents like this give responsible dog owners a bad image.  This is something we are working hard to change on our island.  And please only bring one or maybe two dogs and only if they are accustomed to being friendly and quiet in public.  This incident greatly upsets us. 35 Piimauna Drive Volcano, Hawaii  96785 (808) 967-7772 Open Every...
