This is must see and do restaurant in the Village of Volcano, just a couple of miles from the entrance into Volcano national park. I'm not a vegetarian but the food is essentially vegetarian fare and is very good with healthy portions. You will not leave hungary. The owner is friendly, a Brooklyn transplant.

We happened upon Cafe Ono while driving around Volcano. We stopped for lunch and sat in the garden. The menu had limited options (not the best if you have picky kids), but the food and ambiance was great and it was a great place to stumble upon!

We waited 10 minutes at the door before anyone even approached us and when we stepped inside, we were told to stay outside. They were not all that welcoming. We stayed because we determined that there are not many choices nearby. Still, despite slow service, the food wound up being quite good.

Wonderful vegan food served in a cozy gallery/cafe setting. We had the vegan chili and lemongrass soup, which was really tasty.

We enjoyed eating here when we stayed in the Volcano area of the big Island. We had lunch after a hike. The food was very good and we will return.

Great place to stop in the very cute volcano village. Grab a bite and a drink, and make sure you look through the art and gift area. The had some of the nicest and most interesting art that we saw in the Big island, also cool jewelry and other treasures. Don't miss it.

Every time we visit Volcano we hit Cafe Ono for lunch. Another great meal and we always enjoy chatting with the owner. Super friendly and genuinely interested in where people are from, etc.
