What a great find for a tasty vegetarian lunch, and the grounds are so artful and cared for. Truly a unique eatery considering the surrounding region!

Gorgeous setting with a lovely range of organic food. Meals come with soup and salad and are served with complimentary wine. The owners are really lovely and welcoming. The food is divine ☺️

The home made soups are ono! Sometimes, all I want is a good soup, but don't want to make a pot. Cafe Ono to the rescue! The Apple pie is as good as mine...and mine is amazing! We love stopping for ice cream, too.

I was a bit skeptical when I heard this was a vegetarian place - I'm more of a meat eater - but we were both blown away by the delicious food! We shared lasagna, pesto artichoke sandwich, shittake mushroom soup, and split pea soup. The service was friendly and we loved that we were surrounded by local art during our meal. Our only regret was not trying the ice cream and apple pie! (We were too full from the meal). We would highly recommend stopping here for lunch!

I decided to give this place a try due to the number of positive reviews, but I left entirely underwhelmed. The food was the biggest disappointment. Both the soup and the main course (lasagna) were served just barely tepid. The cheese on the top, though melted at some stage, was a coagulated mess of room temperature gumminess by the time it made it to my plate. The overall flavour was okay, but the thicker vegetables hadn’t cooked through. Moreover I found the prices a tad on the high side. Yes, I know this is Hawaii, but $16 for room temperature, under-cooked lasagna and $8 for a piece of apple pie seem high to me for a place of this calibre. On the pulse side the shop and gardens are lovely. I say go for the gardens, go for the shop, but pass on the restaurant.
