Off the beaten track, non touristy, quaint little place (once you are inside) Excellent, gourmet burgers... like you have never tasted before. Yes, worth the $14, even with no sides. Who needs a pile of potatoes anyhow. Don't forget the Brussel sprouts! who knew they could taste so good. Don't go here if you want a typical $8.99 burger.

UPDATE: Cafe Carmen is closed. It is now COW PIG BUN. I was told the old owners of Cafe Carmen have partnered with others to reopen in this same place. Completely different menu and design.

Two high level chefs took over the defunct Cafe Carmen and are trying to sell expensive burgers in Kihei, Maui. It might be a good idea if it was on the beach, but in a tech park...give me a break. We decided to give it a try. The burgers are $14 - $17 with no sides. The sides are super... More

It's a good place to eat. I've only had breakfast 5 times. They have air conditioning, on a hot day it's nice. It is in an office building and has a sandwich shop feel. They cook everything to order and use fresh ingredients. The Staff is friendly. They have a bloody marry bar on the weekends that is kind of... More

This is a little off the beaten path but well worth the find. The banana bread was the best we had on the island! We sat and had a view of the golf course and beyond the Pacific. The view only added to the food! I had the wrap which was full of egg, bacon and cheese. My husband had... More

Saw some good reviews on this place so we decided to try it out. Great menu with lots of options, great service, trendy, but the food was only ok. Fish tacos, lasagna, pasta, panini, a rice bowl, and 3 iced coffee drinks is what we indulged in. Our girls loved the drinks but that's all we can really say that... More

My wife and were looking for a new place to eat one evening. Found Cafe Carmen on-line and decided to give it a try. All I will say is find this place and go eat there. Delicious food and incredibly accommodating staff. Another return spot for sure.

This place feels like a sandwich shop in the basement of your office building. Brightly lit and all tiled. No ambiance at all. None. Zero. But, the service is charming and the food is excellent. It wasn't what we were looking for in Hawaii, but with more time, we would have returned.

We visit Maui twice a year , one of the ways we stretch our vacation budget is to find places to eat that are not in the tourist mainstream. Cafe Carmen in Kihei is our new favorite, the food is fresh, tasty and presented in an attractive manner , the menu has something for everyone. We have not had dinner... More

My friend and I went for dinner last for the first time - delicious! Completely random location in the Tech Park, absolutely worth finding it. (And, who knew, we could see the ocean from our table!) Great service, friendly staff is only the start. We had the Thai style poke and pupu steak with kimchi for appetizers (both fantastic, great... More
