We went here upon recommendation from others. Versitile menu including Hawaiian favorites. I had an Ono Benedict which was great. Breakfast same with half a papaya and I was thrilled with the taste. They serve Coke not Pepsi but the menu says Pepsi.

Wow...we had shaved ice on our last day in Kauai and thankfully so... It was so delicious we would have gone there everyday, at least. I had the Halo Halo, OMG the ice cream on top was purple sweet potato with poi, it was fantastic. Great price too... People were lined up all day to get theirs.

We ate here twice for breakfast because it was close to where we were staying. It was a nice breakfast with quite a few options.

We searched high and low for a good shaved ice. The shaved ice was humongous. One must have skill to enjoy this treat. I watched several people eat from the sides only to have it collapse and fall to the ground. LOL. You must eat it from the top down.

The shave ice we had here was some of the best anywhere. The flavors are delicious. Be sure you try the coconut ice cream in yours. It's amazing! We wish we could have brought some home. It was very reasonably priced, $4.75. We paid more in another place and it wasn't nearly as good.

Ono is Hawaiian for good...or YUMMY, the ono family restaurant is a perfect stop at the end of an all day tour, and inside they have some of the best breakfast's on island. My wife and I consider it a wonderful Sunday treat to brunch with their great variety of eggs or giant stacks of pancakes. If we can manage,... More

I had their shaved ice and it is huge and amazing. Too many flavors and combos to try. It takes forever to get though because they are so big so be prepared to wait.

We spent this past Christmas in Kauai & had Christmas breakfast Ono's. It was wonderful. The restaurant was packed, but the service, food & friendliness of the servers did not suffer! They even had that wonderful island favorite - spam!
