By far the best shave ice on the island is Ono Ono- you can't beat the value, or the flavor- they don't skimp on the flavoring and the service is always top notch- our favorite!!!

I've been to the restaurant twice now. The most recent, I tried their banana pancakes with my usual bacon, eggs and toast. The pancakes were amazing, having not had them before. The service is great, as are the prices. Many locals eat here, and I can see why. I will be back next year.

For some reason I thought shave ice would be like a snow cone. The ice is fine, the syrup is flavorful. This is refreshing

The tropical pancakes and the Denver omelet were both terrific! The coffee is local and good. This is a wonderful place to start your day. Locally owned and has that island feel.

We did not visit the restaurant, but were told we needed to get some shave ice from Ono Shave Ice. It was both massive and delicious. But most of all, it was massive. We could have, and should have, shared one between us! They have a number of different flavours to choose from, and they were incredibly busy, but still... More
