Volcano is the town nearest the entrance of Volcano National Park, and I'd guess that most visitors drive right by and don't even notice the town. Cafe Ono is just barely off the main road (by about a minute) and it is a bit eclectic....More

Healthy options (limited menu) in a serene garden full of art. There's also a few tables inside. Gallery attached to the restaurant. Recommended if you're near Volcano as an alternative to corporate food in the park...

A day exploring the volcano park finished off perfectly with a lovely lunch in the beautiful garden setting. Delicious soup, quiche and salad combo. Well worth searching out.

My husband really likes their coffee, and I like that they often offer a gluten free treat. We also enjoy the peaceful garden setting. The people are always very friendly and have given us good tips on things to see in the area.

This is a small place tucked away on the outskirts of Volcano, but it is worth trying because of the excellent vegetarian food. Check the hours and days they are open to avoid coming when they are closed.

I am sorry, I must have clicked on the wrong review. I get so confused with Tripadvisor sometimes I don't know where to click. It must have been for the one above yours. Thank you for visiting us and hope you come again soon.
