This is a great restaurant for breakfast. Our service was quick and the food was delicious. Well priced meals. Pancakes are really good and fluffy. Great value for breakfast. Reasonable priced.

Went back for shaved iced another day and two high school kids were working the counter. Awful experienced. Bland taste of syrup from bottles poured badly. Tossed out!

This style of shave ice is more traditional and, therefore, it's one of the more affordable options. While there are newer more foodie-types of shave ice shops using organic syrups and fancy sweet foam toppings, Onos is the style that we grew up with -- a huge cone with sweet syrup, ice cream beneath (if you want), and topped with condensed milk syrup (called snow cone, also if you want). You can get a huge cone to share for $3.75. Add ice cream (I recommend mac nut or mango), and you're closer to $6. Still great values!

Anyhow, my main gripe here is with the SLOOOOOOOW service. We visited twice this trip and both times only ONE worker was taking orders and making shave ice. This means that, if you are unlucky enough to arrive when there is a line, you can wait 15 minutes before even placing an order. While you wait, you will likely not be greeted with a smile or a "hello, just a minute please!" The girl behind the counter will be so busy making the 10 shave ices on her list... THEN she'll take your order (and all those behind you)... and THEN she'll actually make your shave ice. With that said, it's a good option, especially for kids, but just be prepared to wait. Hopefully the owners hire a second worker to help things along. They'd easily pay that salary with all the extra shave ice they'd sell!

The shaved ice is awesome. They do get busy though. Their logistics for order delivery is a little under par, but no big deal.

Tried their spam and eggs for breakfast, it was pretty good. Service was great, this place is usually very busy.
