Jimmy's Hi-Way Cafe
A common gathering place in Wailea...
Roger Forbes, Wailea resident from 1954 to 1959, remembers:
Jimmy's Cafe was across the street from Fujii store. I can't remember how good the food was but, Dad ate lunch there every day, commuting from Wainaku (job transfer) for a few weeks before our Wailea house was ready. Jimmy's was the scene of a banquet (attended by then County Chairman Jimmy Kealoha) for us boy scouts for completing training for a merit badge requirement. I am in the picture next to Andy Silver and Dennis NIshiyama. Jimmy's had a wall phone on a party line. We (Walter Silver, son Andy and I) were on our way back to Hilo and stopped there to eat. Walter went to the phone a couple of times asking if the people talking on the phone could wind up their conversation so that he could place his call.
