Locally owned business that takes a lot of pride in food and recipes. A nice place to relax and soak in the surroundings. The first time we ate there, the cafe had just opened up and the cafe wasn't very busy. Food was great. The 2nd time around, we had just ordered and the place filled up very quickly. Our... More

The food was outstanding -- I recommend the sweet potato casserole, though everything we tried was great. The gift shop was a lot of fun too.

I had a great meal here but the flat chocolate coconut macaroons were fantastic. I've never had them this way before, WOW. Check it out for healthy eating.

The Best!! My husband and I found Cafe Ono by surprise and we are so grateful that we did. The food was absolutely delicious! Fawnna helped us as to what to select and she did not stir us wrong with the panini sandwich, flavored tea and homemade desserts. Do yourself a favor and experience a wonderful meal and meet the...

We met a local friend there for lunch and toured the gardens. Both were wonderful. We had the lasagne, which was very good as were the salads. (My husband is not a fan of olives so could have done with less of those, but I loved it.) We were privileged to meet the owner/artist Ira Ono and he was very... More

First - we never got to try the food hence the 'average' rating and I only write this in support of the staff who work there, and to suggest if you want to try this place then either go really early or don't go for Sunday lunch Second - Sunday lunch time must be popular so why only have one...

This was my first visit to Cafe Ono but it certainly won't be my last. I am not a vegetarian. Although I had heard rave reviews of the cafe, I was a little skeptical. I was completely surprised and pleased by the beautiful, flavorful food! I had the spinach quiche, divine! My daughters had the artichoke and the egg salad... More

We loved the ambiance and the food but the service was a little slow. They were very busy and had a new staff person. She was charming, though! The best vegetarian food - most flavorful and original - ever!

Café Ono has the freshest food I have tasted. The Egg Salad Sandwich was incredible. It is served open face on very hardy bread that has a wonderful flavor. Their soups and salads are always fresh and home made. My wife had the Sweet Potato Casserole which she absolutely enjoyed. The flavors were mixed to perfection.
