Ono means GOOD! People who go to Kapa'a often like this place. It has the feel of a small town diner. Nice efficient service and good food.

This stand has good shave ice. We had never had one, thinking that they would be sweet and syrupy. No they are really good and fruity and refreshing. This stand has friendly staff and tables

My wife and I always look forward to Ono Ono Shave Ice when visiting Kauai. After a warm bicycle ride along the Kapaa bike path on August 11, 2016, there is nothing better than shave ice to cool down.

We went to this restaurant multiple times for breakfast. Always excellent. The kids couldn't get enough shaved ice. Reasonably priced for Hawaii.

This is one of Kauai's best bargains. They have lots of interesting flavors and very generous helpings at a better price than most others.

Great shave ice. We ate there twice and were impressed with the great macadamia nut ice cream and the wonderful flavours. Also, they have great prices compared to Jojo's.

The locals had told us to try the Loko Moco which was a rice, burger, egg and gravy dish for breakfast. It was good, but can't say I would order it again. My friend ordered the pancakes and she loved them. Very small local diner. All the help were friendly and helpful.

Had a late lunch here. Good location. Waitress was friendly. Three people in our group. Fish sandwich, stir fry, fish & chips. Basic home style food. Would go again to try breakfast.
