Discovered this little hole in the wall when other places had closed for lunch. Too small inside to eat but there are tables outside or you can take to go. Great coffee, homemade pastries, fresh sandwiches and wonderful soup. The owner and a helper are there to serve you and give advice about Volcano Village. A good stop over when... More

Simply the best and healthiest food for Lunch in Volcano. Unfortunately they only do lunch. Outdoor seating in the Garden is a must on a sunny day. Meet owner and gifted Artist Ira Ono. Check out the treasures in the gallery.

My spouse and I were staying in Volcano and had to stop set Cafe Ono. The reviewers were spot on! We had the vegetarian panini (with the vegetable supreme soup) and the layered Mexican casserole (with a shitake mushroom miso soup). Both were excellent, especially since we ate it in a wonderful zen garden atmosphere, surrounded by art made by... More

What a lovely place! If you are in Volcano and hungry or just craving coffee, make sure you go there! The place has a beautiful garden with plenty of space, super relaxing! They serve great coffee and a variety of tea, also the cakes, cookies and macaroons looked delicious. Make sure though you try their chili which comes with garlic... More

A local mentioned this cafe to me, and I am thrilled that she did. We were traveling with our daughters who are both vegetarian, so this was the best find! Delicious food, warm and friendly atmosphere, a beautiful garden to explore as well as a great boutique.

Four of us (non-vegetarians all) had lunch here while staying a short distance away, at Volcano House. The cafe is small but comfortable, easy on the wallet, the food hearty and generously plated. Thumbs up from each of us. If you have the bean-heavy chili, though, you might want to avoid social situations for the rest of the day.
