I enjoyed breakfast here on my first trip to Kauai about 3 years ago. So I was very excited to return on our most recent trip to Kauai. While the service was fast and friendly, I did not find the breakfast to be as enjoyable....More

A local tour guide suggested we get real Hawaiian style shaved ice, with ice cream on the bottom, Hawaiian flavor syrups and a snow cap. Did just that and it was the bomb! And don't forget to add the red powder too! Wish I had...More

We wanted to have shave ice for dinner, and Ono Ono definitely hit the spot! Ice cream comes from a carton, so the sno cones are much better than the ice cream. Definitely would go back!

Had breakfast here. Food was good as was the service. A little noisy but not bad. Nothing fancy but good food.

I have a thing for diners and places that sling hash. This is the Hawaiian version! Get your locomoco or your Portuguese sausage dishes. They are all ono (Hawaiian for delicious) and are nice sized portions. And for those picky eaters, there are the standard...More

We ate breakfast here and the coconut pancakes we're amazing. Everyone loves the shaved ice and they give you a large amount that is only $3 or $4. Nice place.
