My family went here twice; one after bike riding and once after doing the Wailua River kayaking adventure. I am a bit of a chocoholic and among their many shaved ice syrpus they had chocolate shaved ice syrup (which I paired with banana). I and my family also had acai bowls, which were very good. The shaved ice and acai... More

This is our go to restaurant for breakfast. Sometimes line ups later in the morning so be a little early. IE before 9:30. Really great breakfasts. All traditional stuff you find anywhere but done real good and fresh. I think family run. Quite a eclectic group of waitresses. Decor is shabby Hawaiian. Hard seat plywood booths. Downtown Kapaa with some... More

We always stop here for breakfast or lunch. The portions are very big and the food is fresh. The papaya served on the side was wonderful. The decor is old fashioned and a little worn but that's what gives it it's charm.

We are staying at a local resort but wanted to find a good local place for breakfast. The concierge at the re resort suggested Ono's. A great choice! A small, locally owned place on the main road with wonderful view of the mountains. The staff was very friendly, and agreed to alter a menu choice for me saying they would... More

They had a large selection for breakfast and lunch and the food is average. The decor is very outdated and needs a good cleaning. The staff can be nice or not depending on who you get. We go because of the location.

While looking for a place to have breakfast we came upon the Ono Family Restaurant. The service was friendly and the food took me back to my childhood; fried rice, egg over easy, toast and meatloaf with ketchup. I had been away from Hawaii for a long time and it was great to have some cooking that helped me to... More

If you are looking for a great local place, where you can eat what the locals, eat, this is the place. The breakfasts are typical for Hawaii - eggs, rice, spam and served in a friendly local atmosphere. If you are looking for local flavor, skip the resorts and chains and come here.

Food wasn't bad but it wasnt really that great either. Establishment is old and has some deferred maintancence. It's not the cleanest place in town either. Portions were substantial and it was reasonably priced .
