We always have to stop here once while we are on Kauai. We also always get the tropical pancakes and some egg dish and share. We also always forget how huge the pancakes are. These are my favorite tropical pancakes on the island. Full of macadamia nuts, banana and the coconut syrup completes them. The egg dishes come with a... More

This is a small restaurant in Kapaa, which is great for locals and visitors. Breakfast was very affordable, menu was about usual, and the food was good.

We arrived late Friday evening and with the 6 hour time change we were hungry for breakfast. What an amazing breakfast, 3 of the party had fish which they thoroughly enjoyed, I had the Ono 2 with fried rice as a side, we all recommend everything we had. Nice touch with the homemade jam as well

Four of us just arrived and we're hungry, and being a hop skip and jump away from Pono Kai resort, we stopped here. Three of us had the captain platters which was mahi mahi, eggs, hash browns or rice, and toast. Our other had a typical bacon and eggs with rice which was excellent. The mahi mahi was grilled to...

We went in for breakfast on our day in Kauai, not a bad choice! Service was pretty good, and our breakfasts were well done.

This place has local atmosphere and a diverse menu of great food! We all loved it -- try the tropical pancakes or Da Boss Scrambled. Super coffee. Friendly, efficient service.

I would give this restaurant about 2.5 stars. The service was very slow and we barely even saw our server the whole time. I had macadamia nut pancakes which were pretty good. They were fresh and tasty but not the greatest pancakes I have ever had. I also had a side of corn beef hash which I have never had... More

This was absolutely one of our favorite meals during our Hawaiian vacation. Just a little diner off the side of the road in the small town of Kappa, Ono's Family Restaurant definitely had an authentic, local feel to it! The server was extremely friendly, and the breakfast was delicious! I can't even remember what I ordered, to be perfectly honest... More
