Cafe Ono has a small but delicious menu of simple and incredibly tasty vegetarian (and vegan) dishes.The staff is friendly, the location relaxing, and did I mention the food was amazing? Each dish is served with homemade bread and a satisfying mound of greens, and some dishes come with a choice of soup. Highly recommended.

We came upon this lovely spot by accident, but we sure enjoyed this refreshing stop. Food is fresh and delicious. The staff is very attentive, even those who were having there first day on the job. The setting is a great mix of art gallery and garden. Great place to visit and to eat.

The setting is perfectly peaceful and beautiful - such a treat. We were only in Hilo for a single day, but are so glad we chose to visit and eat at this eclectic oasis! The owner is extremely welcoming, and the art shop is full of interesting items. Food was beautifully presented and the coconut macaroon is NOT TO BE MISSED!!!! They are huge, come in a two pack, and will fuel you for hours. Yum.

So you can't go all the way to Hilo, Hawaii and not go to the Volcano National Park! We stayed about 45 minutes from Hilo city center to be near the lava. From what I remember this was about an hour drive from our place to the national park. We had a 4PM lava hike scheduled so minimal time at the park. We took an extra hike and after leaving realized that we had not eaten with a 6 hour hike ahead of us we had to stop somewhere!! When you are driving out in the middle of no where that's not as easy as you think missing one single turn can take you miles out of your way before you can turn around and you'll be lucky to get a phone signal here. Battling through all of this we discovered Cafe' Ono! It turned out to be really freaking organic and vegan friendly. I think it was completely vegetarian actually which made me feel good because I knew we would be getting feel good food! When drove in it's a little confusing to park because there are art tents everywhere and private dining parties so we did not know where to go at first. The restaurant is around back, the dining room is very small about 4 tables and they have a small menu. Outside they have about 6 tables you can eat at as well. While we were waiting for our food we went shopping the local arts and jewelry. I found a bracelet I really liked it was $180 so I just took a picture will post below! Jay bought me these really cute earrings made out of local nuts! I love them will post a picture soon. - See more at: http://angieknowsthetruth.blogspot.com/2013/02/cafe-ono-volcano-hawaii.html#sthash.ZQsrcK8g.dpuf
