Ono family restaurant was probably my favorite breakfast while in Kauai. I had an omelette and my mom had the captains platter. My omlette was so tasty and my mom's fish was really fresh and very good. They also give you fresh homemade papaya-pineapple jam...More

We had breakfast here yesterday and it was great. I got eggs, sausage links and French toast. With the French toast they served maple syrup & coconut syrup. Oh my word, I could have ate that French toast with the coconut syrup all day long!...More

Not fancy but great food. One of few restaurants offering gluten free options! Best burger lunch we had in Kauai.

Hostess a little rude. Once seated, service was ok, coffee refills were almost non existent. Breakfast food was good. They did have somewhat of a parking lot. My least favorite restaurant that I went to.
