Ono....we made the right choice! On the island for the week and stumbled into Ono's. We were famished after a hike on the Sleeping Giant Trail. Bring on the eggs. This place is nothing to write home about as far as ambiance goes, but the food was not the same. Ordered the egg sammy and my friend ordered Da Boss... More

Too bad I needed to use the bathroom before I ate here! It was so disgusting, I almost refused to eat at the restaurant! If the employees use the same facilities, I am really skanked out! Price mediocre, onion rings were the only saving grace.

Ono Family Restaurant offers a wide variety of breakfast options - many with island twists (macadamia nuts, pineapple, coconut, etc.). The half of a papaya side tastes extremely refreshing and is a nice island treat (see photo). The food tastes home cooked and service is good. All 6 of us found unique favorites to enjoy.

We love the shaved ice. Lots of flavors to choose from. After eating shaved ice at other places we liked this one the best. We are breakfast here as well. The food was good and so was the service. I am a picky breakfast eater and ordered my bacon and hash browns well done. The food came out perfect. Hubby... More

We love this little shave ice stand. The only bad part is they close to early. It's a good thing the hotel we stayed at had a shave ice stand. Friendly service and inexpensive.

Had my first and second acai bowl at Ono Ono Shave Ice. A great refreshing and healthy treat. They also serve shave ice and ice cream.

Not the place to go if you want something fancy. However, of good food is what you want this is a good place to go for breakfast.

Have made many trips to the islands but never got around to trying Shave ice. Wow. Didn't know what I was missing! Tried the Kauai sunset with snow caps and it was REALLY good! I highly recommend this stop in Kapaa.

I've eaten a lot of shaved ice in my lifetime, so I'm pretty particular. We had already gotten shaved ice on this trip up in Princeville, and for the $27 we paid I wasn't impressed (x5 people). I had looked up shaved ice shacks after we left the beach near us and found this and a couple others nearby. What... More
