commitment to local

The Big Island boasts a bountiful array of fresh local produce and products. From sweet Rincon Farm strawberries plucked out of Kamuela soil, freshly baked breads from Mamane Bakery, to Aina Meli's pure Hawaiian Raw Honey from the Ka'u district - we proudly support Big Island farmers and purveyors!

What is açai?

The açai berry is a reddish-purple fruit that comes from the açai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America.

Our açai blend is made from the fruit pulp that is proven to be even richer in antioxidants than cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or blueberries. Delicious and healthy for you? Who knew!

Lunch specials

We feature a lunch special every day in addition to our regular menu. From poke bowls and hearty chills, to homestyle filipino favorites, follow us on Instagram and Facebook for daily updates. Or, check out our lunch specials' page!

shelina + Kalei

A random stroll through Honoka'a town led Shelina Ignacio and Kalei Serrao to the storefront that is now Hina Rae's Café. 

Unexpected, impulsive and completely perfect. That's how it all started. The couple, both Honoka'a High School alumni, never thought they'd one day be owners of a little café, though now they can't imagine life any other way.

namesakes

Why Hina Rae's? The café is named after Shelina and Kalei's two beautiful daughters, Mahina and Ella Rae! 

Along with big brother Kaeden, Hina and Ella are the inspirations and "the reason" behind the family business.

 

for a cause 

For every Kaeden's Fave Açai Bowl purchased, Hina Rae's Café will donate 50¢ to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawai'i

When baby Ella Rae was born at only 26 weeks old on O'ahu, the Ronald McDonald house was a "home away from home" for Shelina as Ella spent four months in the NICU. Now, big brother Kaeden wants to help give back! Buy his fav, support a cause!
