We read the reviews on Ono Family Restaurant and since we were right there (biking) we decided to try it out. Our food was delicious! If we had more time we would have gone back another day! We had lunch, but there were people eating...More

When traveling to an outer island, we like to find a Local restaurant. It's even better when you get a recommendation from someone who lives there. Thank You, Glacy! I had fried rice and corned beef hash😋😋😋 Went early enough that we sat right down...More

Tour guide from Kauai Backwoods tubing recommended this place. Hands down the best shaved ice. Get it with vanilla ice cream. 😋

This is Kauai's "Locals' Diner". The building is old, dusty, needs paint... but you don't go to a diner for the decor, do you? This is a family-run diner with Hawaiian twists. Get the Loco Moco (I had with Portuguese pork). Mmmm... Food is so...More

Family restaurant with many local options. Must try Loco Moco. Its an island fav with hamburger patty, rice, eggs and brown gravy. Was very good. Also omelettes were delicious. There are many daily specials and all prices are quite standard for the area. Service good.

Great family run business.We ate here a couple of times. Good location to stop if you are planning to head north to do some sight seeing. Did try my first loco moco here while on Kauai. Price is very affordable!

They have different flavours of poke offered here! They've been in Kapaa for years and I can see why! They do the food good! Locals frequent this spot and it truly is a gem!

This has the best shave ice in Kapaa. Too bad they are not open as late as we would have liked. They were often closed when we got back from the beach.

Wonderful family run breakfast place. Locals and tourists eat there. Go early because there can be a wait.

My friends and I all enjoyed our food, including an omelette, french toast and eggs & spam. A good choice if you aren't cooking your own breakfast.

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
