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!

We went to Ono Shave Ice one afternoon and waited in line for more than 30 minutes for shave ice. Very good shave ice - my favorite is still Ululani's in Maui, but this shave ice was far better than Matusmoto's on Oahu. The portions were huge and, despite being a shave ice fan, I had hit the saturation point... More

Broke da mouth yet once again. I love this place for breakfast. Have been going here for years. It all started with Sheila, who is no longer there and truly missed! She suggested the "local boy" omelet. Kimchee and portagee sausage served with hash browns. Melanie, Sheila's daughter was there yesterday and waited on us. She said "you walked in... More

Every time we visit Kauai, we have to stop by Ono's for their tropical stack at breakfast and a shave ice in the afternoon. Their shave ice are huge and flavorful.

Dilapidated building with no airconditioning. Limited parking. Waited 35 minutes for our food. Some of the silverware was dirty (like, coated with old eggs). Service was friendly. Food (sandwiches & salad) was so-so, Single bathroom is outside and just as dilapidated as the rest of the building. We like off the beaten path type eating places with local flavor but... More

My husband and I heard this was a great place for breakfast so we were excited to try it. Coffee came and was flavored (not regular coffee). Both of our breakfast entrees tasted very bland. The staff although were nice and attentive. It was busy and we were seated quickly. We were not impressed by the food and will not... More

The restaurant looks like a dive. The burgers are amazing! If you are looking for a great burger, it is the place for you. The atmosphere is not why you go there. They are open for breakfast and lunch until 2.

Restaurant is small and warm but the food was worth the wait. Good portions at reasonable prices. Excellent service. Was very hot and humid though with fans running but no A/C. Though to be fair not many places had air conditioning. Shaved ice was something you have to experience. Excellent assortment of flavor story choose from.
