Small but Great

Long line for breakfast, which is a good sign, but take the time, the line goes fast. You go into the building which is small, and order your food, pay, try and grab a space outside and they bring it to you. Very quick. Food was presentable always and tasted great.

There was a long line when we pulled up, but it was worth it!!! I couldn't decide what to eat, but I ate the pork fried rice. It had portuguese sausage, ham and egg. It was unbelievable. The hubs had the special that day, it was an omelet with lamb sausage and goat cheese, delicious. This place was really cute... More

Wait in line, sometimes out the door. It moves quickly and food comes out quick, so don't be discouraged of waiting. Samples were passed around for people in line (baked items). Portions are huge. Prices are reasonable. Awesome food and definitely a must try!

Just stand in line, order your breakfast and then sit down at a table. The servers will bring your huge breakfast! Must do at least once. It is a Maui local experience. It was fun. Had the eggs over easy with wonderful bacon and a sticky bun on the side. What diet :).

We heard from a local that this was a great place and he was so right! We had breakfast here three times during our 12-day trip and each one tried something different with great results. You stand in line and order, pick up your coffee from the and then find a seat outside. Your breakfast is then brought to your... More

This little place was recommended by an Enterprise agent at our resort. It's a great call! All three in our group were full and very satisfying. Location was great for sitting and enjoying the breeze, the birds and the surf.

We had no idea this place was so popular. This was our first breakfast on Maui so we were up early and once we ordered and got seated the line was very long. Once we started rated we knew why. Our breakfast was the best of our trip. If you are in Maui you need to visit Kiehi Caffe. We... More

We ate at this little cafe very early on our way out of town and WOW! Incredible food! Im as food snobby as they come and usually food is cooked for the masses but this place is a shining star apart from the rest! Highly flavorful. We ate here every morning during our trip and not a single item disappointed!

Longish line but it moves fast. The portions are huge for everything except the coffee cups. Omelettes were fantastic and the banana bread French toast, although quite sweet, were a hit. Should be on everyone's try at least once list.

You can't beat fast service with a friendly smile, unless you add great eats for a good price and a great location, gotta try the fried rice bowl better bring someone to help you it's bigger then it looks. Kihei caffe is the place to go for breakfast!.... See you there
