After a day of kayaking and hiking, we ended up Ono Ono shave ice, and it hit the spot! They have an extensive array of flavors, all of which are SO good. We will make this a regular stop every time we're in Kauai. It is delicious!

You go to Hawaii for one reason but the coconut syrup is always a bonus. This place is family owned and ran. The food is delicious and the shaved ice is fine.

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.
