    Great food! They have a gluten free menu and are very knowledgeable on gluten contamination. I had the chili and salad, and my husband had the gluten free Mexican casserole. Perfect for a cold, rainy day. The ladies that ran the cafe were super nice and very helpful with ordering.

    GF items are available and marked on the menu. We had soup and a salad, which was great for the rainy day. My husband also had the lasagna (not GF), but he said it was good and tasted homemade. The waitress was very nice. Our order was a bit off from what we asked for meaning I got bread instead of a side of rice and split pea soup instead of the mushroom soup. The staff was so friendly. I did not mind the change. It was all very good! The shop was very fun to look. If we had more time, I probably would have bought something! You can tell this is a labor of love for the owner. Highly recommend!

    This place had lots of plusses, and one big minus: customer service. I ordered a gluten free meal, and the server confirmed that I would get rice instead of bread. They served my meal with bread. I don't like to make a fuss, so I when I pointed it out, she offered to bring me a side of rice, not a new meal. I just gave the bread and the food around it to my daughter. Someone else ordered a dessert he saw in the case using the label next to it in the case, and they brought him something different. When he asked if he could exchange it for what he wanted, the server replied "But then what am I supposed to do with this? It already has whipped cream on it." (They also had carrot cake labeled as macaroons, but I didn't fall for that one.) Now for the good reviews: the food was delicious, and they have GF desserts, like carrot cake (ask about availabiliy). The garden is beautiful, and guests are invited to check out the art galleries and visit the pet rabbit. The owner was very friendly, and the server was even friendly as I checked out. So, it's a special place, worth a visit if you're flexible with what you get.

    Great food in a beautiful setting! Lots of gf choices, and everything is fresh and healthy. We found the Hilo area to be a real challenge to find gf as most places here ( including so called Thai) use soy sauce on everything. Cafe Ono was a welcome change. Items clearly marked and made gluten free.

    The food was amazing! Everything marked on menu as gf or vegan. Not a lot on menu, but the items they do have are Delish. I ate black bean soup, salad with Greek gf dressing, Mexican layered casserole, and a delicious carrot cake for dessert. Even bought a few coconut chocolate macaroons for the road! One of my fav meals on our entire vacation!!!!! Only open for lunch, will def come back if we return to Volcano!
