Cajun Paradise Farms – Lost

Big Island Guide Travel Guide

Cajun Paradise Farms was Destroyed by the 2018 Kilauea Volcano Eruption and is permanently closed.

Here’s a description of what we all lost with the passing of this little gem. Of all the culinary delights found on Hawaii’s Big Island, there’s one thing even we didn’t expect to find: authentic, honest-to-goodness cajun food!

About as mom and pop as they come, Cajun Paradise Farms is off-the-beaten-path and quaint, but their presentation (and products) are unmatched – especially in Hawaii. Fresh-baked goodies, smoothies and coffee made right on their farm, and Cajun favorites like red beans and rice, gumbo, and a rotation of plump sandwiches, you may not know what to expect when you arrive, but we guarantee you’ll leave satisfied and with a unique style of aloha that fits in perfectly with the rest of their vibe.

Homecooked in their kitchen, each meal is clearly made with love and fun, but as full as you may feel after lunch, you’ll want to save room for dessert. Their bakery is a decadent and lush experience that may not be for the faint of heart: your blood sugar may spike just by walking from the museum/gift shop to the bakery itself!

And to top things off, the only dining area is a covered pavilion set upon a vast, rural expanse that offers views of their orchards, immaculate landscaping, and the dense tropical forests in the distance. If you find yourself in Puna or simply hankering for some southern comfort food, you don’t want to miss out on this hidden Big Island treasure.

Much love and luck to the owners, we hope they find new place to share their amazing recipes and down home hospitality.
