My wife and I consider Cafe Ono a must stop for lunch when in Volcano Village. The food is great and shopping for Art in the same place is the best. We tried to stay at their B&B, but it was booked. Maybe next time.

We stopped at Cafe Ono at the suggestion of a local. The sign at the road said "OPEN". So, we parked and went in. The staff looked at us like we were crazy, and treated us like we should have somehow been able to know from the "OPEN" sign that they were "CLOSED". I get now that the sign was... More

Yes, our café is closed on Mondays for cleaning and cooking but the gallery and gardens are open daily. These visitors arrived at Volcano Garden Arts looking for breakfast and were politely informed by our staff that we do not serve breakfast they became disgruntled and confused by this stating they saw a sign down the road that said we...

IMHO Ira's has the best carrot cake on island, and it's vegan. Really nice grounds and atmosphere too.

The food was lovely. Cafe is set in amongst an art gallery come gift shop. The owner showcases his own work as well as other items and is super friendly.

It's true. All the rave reviews. Delish pizza and salads. Atmosphere is so-so but hey when you are in paradise it's ok to just grab a casual bite... not every meal needs to be an event. Highly recommend.

My wife and I stopped at Cafe Ono based on a recommendation by people we met at the resort we were staying at. We were not familiar with the type of food this place served. The menu was not geared towards people who like meat. That is not my complaint. I would have given a higher rating because it is... More

Café Ono's reputation is based on providing an exquisite, organic, vegetarian cuisine in an aesthetically pleasing garden setting. Many of our customers and reviewers are meat-lovers and they still enjoy our hearty entrees. We work very hard to provide the freshest food possible and I apologize if someone on our staff made you uncomfortable when you left. I will speak... More

Café Ono is an experience you won't want to miss. Tucked away near the end of the Old Volcano Rd in the town of Volcano, it is part of Ira Ono's beautiful gallery. The setting is beautiful, laid back and relaxing. The food is probably the most healthful on the Island and absolutely delicious. The folks working in the kitchen... More

An outstanding place to eat hearty vegetarian food. Close attention to taste detail -- from the salad dressing to the soups to the main courses. Fully satisfied at the end of all my visits during the past two years of "working over" the menu. Serene, but simple location, provides a ambiance that defines Volcano and enhances the dining experience.

We, my husband and I, always stop here when we're in the area. We make it a point, in fact, to introduce visiting friends and family to this place! We truly consider it a must-do for visitors to the area. The food, the service, and the ambiance are so delightful. Fawnna is such a treasure; always so eager and patient... More
