Ira Ono is a great host. Cafe Ono is a treat to all who visit. The meals seem well thought out. Filling and visually pleasing. Will return again and again.

“Even a carnivore liked it”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Veggie type place, food was very tasty and the portions were good. Atmosphere was very nice and it is a good combination of art gallery and cafe. Very friendly environment.
The lasagna and the four type spinach were good.
It is closed on Monday.
Would go back next time in the area, and it is located almost at the end of that road.

“Secret Garden”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We had lunch here. Amazing grounds and the vegetarian food was excellent. We browsed the gift shop after lunch and found some amazing artist made items, which we purchased. We almost missed this place and were so glad we didn't.

“Great experience”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

I agree with the other reviewer that as a meat eater I usually dont find too much on the menu, but the lasagna is delicious and filling. My wife had the soup of the day and really enjoyed it. Worth looking for this one. As a side note, if you say hi to earnest the goat, be careful because his playful horns can hurt.

“Cafe' Ono is "ono-licious"!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Being an avid meat-eater, I usually leave a vegetarian meal feeling not quite satisfied, but the food at this charming cafe was exceptional, from the homemade dressing to the heartwarming soup and generously portioned lasagne. I wish I could have squeezed in one of the gourmet desserts on the menu that day. "Ono" in hawaiian means "delicious", and the cafe definitely lives up to its name. The property is landscaped in lovely vignettes of tables and sculptures, and on a nice day it would be great to have one's meal outside. The cafe opens into a very nice gallery, with handmade items by local artists selected with a keen eye for beauty and aesthetics in a variety of price ranges. I couldn't help but buy a few items for myself as well as gifts to take home.
