We stopped in for a couple of Shave Ices' -- they have plenty of flavors and options available. The line was big but well worth it! A great stop in for sure!

Stopped in for breakfast and was very pleased. Fast service, good coffee and large portions. I was stuffed. Next time I will split the meal with my wife. Everything was good and I wanted to try more, I just didn't have room. This is a...More

Like most shave ice stands, they have lots of flavors, and then some combination concoctions. The people are very nice and their location is convenient, right along the main road on the south side of Kapaa downtown.

Great location on the main highway between Kapaa and Lihue. Very handy. Limited seating. Good, but not great Shave Ice.

Went here only for the shave ice which was really good even when it was cloudy out. They have so many flavor options. Be sure to order yours with a scoop of ice cream on the bottom.

When in Kauai, I always try and frequent the small mom and pop places over the chains restaurants, doing this really helps me get into the laid back Island life. This place has an amazing menu full of local breakfast specials. I’m a sucker for...More

I enjoyed eating breakfast and brunch at Ono's. There is not an outstanding or NEW item in the place and the owners are busy, but have time for you. It felt like home to me. Good old eggs and bacon and hash browns are great...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
