We had an excellent lunch here. Highly recommend - also plan some time to look around the art gallery and do some shopping.

Came here for lunch with my mother. Nice little place with an art/craft/jewelry gallery attached. Compared to some of the other local restaurants, seemed to get more food for your money. Service was super friendly and rather quick. The menu is not entirely vegan (my mom had egg salad) but has a lot of veggie choices.

The first thing you notice is the wonderful smell coming from the kitchen in the back. Very nice outdoor sitting area. Fresh local produce.

We happened upon the sign for this place as we were looking for Volcano (not the erupting one, the village). Turns out there is not really much to the village, just a few little restaurants and inns. We decided to give it a try. The food was fantastic and there was a wide choice. I am vegetarian, but some in... More

We had lunch here one day for lunch. The grounds are very pretty and relaxing and the service good. As someone who is not vegan/vegetarian I was at a loss as to what to order. If you want something other than vegetarian food do not go here. I would say the amount of food is more than fair. It's just... More

We were looking for vegetarian options on our day long trip exploring the volcanoes and discovered this place. Ambience is lovely with a nice garden, very quiet and laid back atmosphere. We had soups, salad and sandwiches and the food was great. There is a small gift shop adjacent to the cafe with some nice collections from all over.

This cafe is so beautiful and looks to be an oasis of calm with Eastern statues and a vegetarian menu. However I was so disappointed by the attitude of the cook who was hostile, unfriendly and rude. Being British the attitude of the cook was so alien to me when she was uttering statements such as "that is off and... More

First, I would like to thank you for your valuable input. We are always seeking ways to help improve our guest experience at Cafe Ono. That being said, New Year's Day was the busiest in the Cafe's history, with only one other restaurant open besides Cafe Ono. With over 100 lunches served, I am proud to mention that most of... More
