Do not miss this charming shop.

This little shop has some of the greatest Hawaiian gifts and art. Set in a lovely garden it is also a vegetarian restaurant. Really lovely. I found many one of a kind gifts here and a painting that I will treasure forever.

Lots of interesting things to see in the shop while you wait for your food. The lasagna was great. Lots of organic and vegetarian selections.

I was surprised the menu was vegetarian. However it turned out better than I expected. I had the chilli with sweet potato chips. For dessert, the carrot cake was to die for. The owner was there, and he made our experience complete. A gem.

Awesome food and service. The food is largely organic and includes great soups, salads, and sandwiches. They also have backed goods. We were able to find gluten and dairy free items on the menu for a friend. The cafe is set in a beautiful garden space, and is attached to an art gallery with the wondeful motto or "Please touch!"...

Very nice grounds and landscaping. Great gift shop. It gets crowded around lunch time and you may have to wait to get a table. The menu looked interesting but we only had coffee.

We made it a point to visit the self described "top rated" place in the area. Unfortunately they closed up early today before posted closing hours and they did not bother to take down their open sign. They were not very civil about this and I will not be back.

We stumbled on to the Ono cafe after seeing a sign in volcano village. The place is beautiful and people friendly. The food was even better. Great fresh saldas, soups, veggie lasagna and quiche. Yum - good find

Very nice staff also. The food is vegetarian and very plentiful. We had the delicious lasagna. The salad was the best we had in Hawaii.

We nearly didn't find this amazing cafe today as it's tucked away at the end of Old Volcano Road BUT so glad we did as it was just yummy! We had corn chowder soup, veggie lasagne, salad with Asian sesame dressing and vegetarian chilli with rice and it was all delicious. I took away a slice of gluten free carrot... More

We had lunch here yesterday after a hike in the National Park. We were not expecting much as there aren't a lot of great options in the area but we were extremely surprised. It was amazing!! Everything was so fresh!! The green goddess salad dressing was delicious! Coconut c urry soup had so much flavour and a nice touch with... More
