I recently traveled to Kauai with 3 other people. Two of our group ate breakfast at Ono Family Restaurant one day. They said the food was very good but the staff was squabbling about who should be performing what duties (one was saying she was...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.

We had the banana mac nut coconut pancakes and they were amazing. We also had a couple other dishes which were also great! Nice Vibe too.

If you’re looking for a decent priced, delicious breakfast, try this place. The selection is great. It has a homey diner atmosphere. No complaints. We will be back.

Nothing to special. Not super strong flavors. Comes in a plastic cup thing that is unique. But all in all just average.

The servings are huge, but the ice texture and taste is average. I ordered a strawberry with vanilla ice cream and was disappointed to find one small lump of ice cream at the bottom of my cup. Not worth the money.

Forgot about the second question. I cannot say for absolute certain ( I have only been going there since 1996), but I think that there was a menu item called deuces wild, which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon or sausage... More
