Terrific breakfast

If you can't find something delicious on their extensive menu, you just don't like breakfast. Ingredients are fresh and local, service is first rate, staff is friendly and prices are reasonable. This is a family owned business and has been in Kapaa for years. Breakfast and lunch only.

Four of us had breakfast at Ono's as it was walking distance from our time share. I had the French toast special of the day and it was excellent. Others ordered omelets and they large and very good. The servings are large and we all enjoyed our breakfast. It is busy and we had to wait 10 minutes to be... More

Kenny the host was so helpful and friendly. He gave us several recommendations for entertainment and food etc... all of which was right on. The food here was awesome: Loco Moco was great! The shave ice here was the best we had on the island. It was like cotton candy and was better than four other places we got shave... More

We stopped for lunch and evidently no one there could understand a lick of English. I ordered fish and chips and I was brought 3 nearly burnt fried fish sticks. My hubby ordered the hamburger steak with fries. He did not get his salad and when his plate was brought to him he didn't get fries he ordered but got... More

We always stop off for breakfast at least once during our stay on Kauai. The staff is friendly and the food is outstanding. I always order from the the Special's board. This time I had the Portuguese Pork Special with fried rice and sour dough. Yummy! If you leave hungry, it's your fault.

So this is NOT a fine dining restaurant, but let me tell you about the Farmers Omelet. If you like corn beef hash, this omelet is amazing. Cheese, hash, onions, and smothered in a warm thick Hollandaise sauce. I had never heard of such a thing, and typically don't care much for omelets, but this item is outta this world... More

We went here for breakfast, and while the food was OK, the service was awful. When we were seated, there were 3 tables seated after us who all got served before us. When a lady came around to ask if we wanted coffee she asked only my husband and completely ignored me. The waitstaff did not seem knowledgeable about the... More
