The tropical pancakes were a huge disappointment. They were dry and rubbery. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive, though. The shave ice is huge and I like that they put the ice cream in the middle instead of the bottom.

We had breakfast at Ono's twice during our stay in Kauai. This open, air family run restaurant is not fancy, but is a popular place and was busy both mornings we were there. We were seated pretty quickly after we got there, but did see other folks waiting for tables when the place was full. Once seated though, they seemed... More

my husband enjoyed their acai bowl and I loved their halo-halo. The halo-halo could use a little bit of mango ice cream but it still turned out good.

Best shave ice on kauai. Portions are large and cheap. Only 3 dollars and their huge and delicious. Went to other shave ice places and were half the size and over 4 dollars. Right next to a bike rental place. Rent bikes, ride down the beach, enjoy shaved ice. Time well spent

Ono's breakfast is decent but not a "wow". Go for the pancakes, they're quite good. Egg dishes are ok but nothing special. The breakfast menu is varied but I wish they had a combo which offered eggs with a pancake or two. Portion sizes are huge so go hungry and plan to be stuffed for hours later.

Oh my goodness I am proud to say we had shave ice for the first time and love it. Expensive but oh so good. We got the rainbow with coconut icw cream and the free snow cap (which was like a light syrup) - must get while you're here.

So there aren't many breakfast places in Kapaa, and really only 2-3 that seemed up to par. Out of all the others we tried even across the island, this was the best breakfast we had by far. My GPS took me the wrong way the first time we tried to come here and ended up going to the Country K... More

Had an omelet and Eggs Florentine. Both were delicious and prices reasonable. Loved the papaya jam. Service was very good . . . I'm pretty sure we will be back for more!! Lots of delicious sounding options and specials!
