This was our first stop the morning we arrived on the island. We were famished after traveling all night. We were quickly seated (outside...perfect!). My husband ordered the Local Boy with fried rice and he loved it! I ordered the Bacon Avacado Omelet with hash browns. While I wouldn't say this particular option had a ton of flavor, it was... More

We always stop in for a breakfast or two while we're on Kauai. Great local family place with great food and reasonable prices. Portions and service is great too.

Located in Kapaa, we were visiting friends and looked up local restaurant before Kauai trip so thought we'd ck it out. 4 adults, 2 kids. They were done serving breakfast (10:50)and I understand from experience changing from one menu to the next but the gentlemen was kind enough to let us quickly order and 2 of us ordered French toast,...

The portions were truly enormous and $3.25/each. I can't even tell you how many flavors there were. We did not eat in the restaurant, as it closes at 2pm. Give the shave ice a try tho!

A great menu of the usual lunch items plus lots of Hawaiian style favorites from this family kitchen. My wife was not too hungry so ordered a smoothie which was excellent. I ordered a meat-loaf sandwich special from the chalk-board menu: its not "Would you like onion rings with that?", its actually "You WANT onion rings"! So that's what I... More

ONO FAMILY RESTAURANT After reading great things about Ono Family Restaurant in travel guides and reviews, we stopped in for a hearty breakfast before a day of adventure on Kauai. My husband and I ordered banana pancakes (a stack for each of us), a side of hashbrowns, coffee, and juice, and our ticket was around $30. A good price for... More

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.
