“Great Shave Ice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

The shave ice is great, but the wait is very long and the smell is consistently digusting. It makes it hard to enjoy the treat.

“Wanted to try everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

This place was amazing. We were in town for about 10 days and ate here four times. I would have gone every day! Breakfast and lunch are both amazing. Their "local bomb" and smoothies can fill you up for the whole day!!! So good!

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

We stopped in Kono's for breakfast and had the breakfast burritos. Huge tortillas filled with eggs and diced potatoes and then your choice of meats and veggies. Mine had bacon and the husband had avocado and salsa. They were around $7. I had a large cup of OJ ($3) to go with mine. We couldn't finish the burritos because there was so much food, and we didn't eat again until around 6 pm for dinner. There are lots of cute/touristy shops right there as well.

“Breakfast or lunch this is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Whether you're a local or visiting the Oahu's North Shore for the first time make sure you stop in to Kono's for breakfast or lunch. It's totally got the local feel and the food is unbelievable.

If you're doing breakfast make go for a breakfast burrito or the macadamia nut waffles. My wife and I ordered both and split them. It was delish!

They also serve great sandwiches at lunch so you can't go wrong. It is cash only and if you go down on the weekends parking can be limited.

“Biggest breakfast burrito ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

We ate here twice in the I week we were on the north shore. The breakfast burritos are huge and delicious and we had fast friendly service. Also you get free refills for coffee- can't complain about that!
