Please help for breakfast and lunch recs on the Big Island. My wife and her family will be FOB (Pride of Aloha) in Hilo this Wed, 10/12 and Kona on this Thur. 10/13. They are spoiled from having rented a car on Oahu on Sunday and driving to Boots and Kimo's for breakfast and then to Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck for lunch. They need recs for something within town or a short drive along the coast for breakfast and lunch, also good shave ice (willing to rent a car again for a nice drive and good chow). Thanks.

They drove on Oahu to the list below and had great food.
