If you are looking for coffee and baked goods early in the morning in Princeville, you will strike it rich here. The espresso, coffee, and tea are all awesome. But what makes this place stand out are the scones. These are the real thing. Soft, moist, just like any that you would find in the U.K., where I lived for... More

Great coffee and fine food in a relaxed central location. Coffee is the best I have tasted on the island and staff are pleasant and attentive. Pricing is reasonable and I would recommend it over most eateries in the area.

My family and I stayed in beautiful Kawai for six nights. This bakery at the Princeville Center was a short walk away from the house we were staying at. It is very tiny, with a fairly small menu... everything is delicious. Because it is small with a small staff, you will most likely stand in a short line and wait... More

We spent 3 weeks in the beautiful islands of Maui, the big island, and Kauai. The only thing my wife keeps talking about is that Acai bowl she had in this place. It was excellent, quick, and reasonably if staying in the Princeville area.

We went here for breakfast several days during our trip and loved the acai "everything" bowl. Bowl with blueberries, strawberries, banannas, granola, an acai type sorbet, and I think a touch of honey. Grab a bowl and coffee to go and hit Hideaway Beach for an amazing morning. Our 10 year old son loved the bowls too. There hot breakfast... More

Great selection for breakfast, and it was nice to eat in the open air. They had omelets and Eggs Benedict, among other things.

We stopped by on a rainy morning for some eggs benedict. They were tasty, just needed some salt for a bit more flavor (and I hate adding salt to things). We had friendly service at the counter but then the girls were talking loudly about how they hoped no more customers came in, which was just unprofessional and rude. Anyway.... More

I would just like to point out as a regular customer at lei petite, you shouldn't judge the place by these bad reviews, go check it out for yourself. I have been their many times and witnessed many customers be rude, demanding, impatient, and just mean to these girls! They really do put up with a lot of crap! They... More
