Tropical pancakes with coconut syrup. Portuguese sausage. A bowl of fruit. Enough food for 2 hungry people to share. Good food at a reasonable price if you share. We stop here often when on island. And the shave ice is pretty good too!

This is a no frills, get ‘em in, get ‘em out, family run restaurant. We waited about 10 minutes for a table at 9:30am. Our waitress was pleasant and accommodating. Food was served efficiently and tasted great. They use Island-fresh eggs in their breakfast dishes....More

This is a rather small local establishment. The food was good and the service was friendly. I would chose Kountry Kitchen over Ono's.

We tried this place for breakfast and it is an overrated greasy breakfast joint with slow service. Check their health inspection results - it was only on our way out we noticed they had a conditional pass for food temperatures and insects/rodents :s

So many flavors of shaved ice. Our hotel was right next door so it was convenient to get the shaved ice frequently. We all loved it.

When we were in Kauai a few years ago, this used to be our favorite restaurant. However, it seems that with time the quality and service has gone downhill. I wish I could give this restaurant a better review since it’s a family business, but...More

If you don't have an appetite, you might want to wait until you do. The quantity is insurmountable...and the local quality is fabulous, as usual. We've been breakfasting her for years and simply love it. It's fresh, it's local, and it has never disappointed us....More

Forgot about the second question. I cannot say for absolute certain ( I have only been going there since 1996), but I think that there was a menu item called deuces wild, which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon or sausage... More
