This place has been around forever. Faded curtains, old furniture, great atmosphere. Food is "on" !! we had lunch, burgers are great but missed the buffalo birger. Perhaps they no longer offer? We went back for breakfast. Awesome!. try the tropical pancakes ( short stack its alot of food). You will go home craving these.

We stopped to get a refreshing shaved ice. This was the first time we ate it so we didn't knew what to expect. We liked the ice but it just not something we really love, the ice is great if you're a fan of it. Lots and lots of combinations possible and the portions are really big.

Nothing special. My husband had the breakfast burrito, and I had the corned beef omelet. We also had a fruit cup. The banana was fresh but the papaya was incredibly mushy.

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.
