I didn't tell my husband it was vegan before we came cause I knew I'd get a look and a groan, and even though I did get a look when he saw the menu we both really enjoyed our lunch here. We both got the curry vegetable soup and it was very hearty and filling. The salad was full of... More

The food at this charming Cafe is always excellent. Best miso soup I have ever tasted. The salads and sandwiches are made with fresh, delicious ingredients. It's quaint, cozy and with wonderful service. The outdoor dining is neat also. The Local island artist's shop, in the same building, is also a very interesting combination of all types of artistic creations.

Learned about them on TripAdvisor and delighted we did! Without a GPS map we would still be looking for them. A house converted to restaurant and gallery, with some open-air outbuildings, in a garden / park, that is also an art gallery and museum. Peaceful and beautiful. On a rainy day the house was warm and inviting. Owner Ira Ono... More

Cafe Ono is wonderful option just outside the national park. Very satisfying, full meal including unique soup, salad, bread and tasty vegetarian / vegan entrees. Don't go if you crave meat. We can vouch for the lasagna, panini and Mexican casserole. All without breaking the bank, plus it was open for lunch when others were closed. Gallery on property offers... More

Avoid chain restaurants when in Hawaii! Eat a places like this! You eat in the garden amongst beautiful scenery. The meals are fresh and they prepare specials daily that were amazing. My husband's favorite was a mushroom seaweed soup. He said it was his favorite meal of our 2 week vacation! You can shop a little while you wait and... More

This is a vegan restaurant. My husband is a giant meat eater. He didn't mind eating here at all. They given you really big portions, you will not leave hungry. Free refills on soup. You can't go wrong. They close at 3 pm.

We went a few times to cafe Ono for a morning coffee and slice of cake. The food is organic and quite tasty. We had a nice time talking with cafe owners and local customers.

My husband and I loved Cafe Ono. It's only open for lunch. When you pull into the parking lot it's not immediately clear where to go but we found it! Everything on the menu is vegetarian. We got the lasagna and Mexican casserole. Both were delicious and both came with hearty homemade soups, salads and purple sweet potato chips (so... More

What a delicious and nutritious place!!! My husband and I are still talking about how wonderful this restaurant/ art gallery/ garden was. The food was so fresh and an amazing value. I loved the balsamic vinaigrette so much that they gave me the recipe! This was the best reasonably-priced meal that we had on our entire vacation.
