One of the Best breakfast in Hawaii!

One of the best breakfast in not only Oahu, but the whole state of Hawaii. Top 5 easily. I wish they had a cafe Kihei on every island!! Cash only. Not the fanciest place, you eat outside and the foods brought to you. Huge portions and great food!!!

Kihei Caffe opens at 5 am, so if you're an early bird, you can beat the lines. I am never anxious to stand in a line; however, after passing this place several times, we decided we needed to see what all the fuss is about. Actually, the line moves quite quickly, and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The... More

Excellent breakfasts. Wish there were more mornings in the week. So many interesting items on the menu. Don't be scared off by the long line, it moves fast and the people are friendly. Wonderful outside dinging with the park and water directly across the street. give your self time to relax and enjoy your meal.

The line to order your food may look long but this small cafe gets you through quickly and efficiently. My second time visiting and it never lets me down.

Great breakfast. The banana bread french toast was very good. Freshly made breakfast sausage too. The guy taking your order is so friendly. Made us feel like we were local's. We will be coming back the next time we are in Maui.

Read the reviews and wanted to try it. Already a line when we got there, but it moved fast. Cashier was friendly and efficient. My husband had the homemade corned beef hash and it was amazing - huge plate of food that two smaller appetites could split. I decided, since I was in Rome, to order something totally different and... More

The location doesn't look like much on the outside, but this was one of the best meals we had in Maui. You can tell right away this is a favorite of the locals. The food was wonderful with huge portions so bring a big appetite. I think their omelets are the best thing on the menu, but you can't go... More

This was a great find and we went there twice. There will most likely be a line - sometimes a long one - but the line moves pretty quickly and after you order your food and pay, find a seat outside and your food will be there before you know it. You must get a cinnamon roll - so incredibly... More

The line looked very long, but it went fast. We had french toast and it was excellent! I also ordered crispy bacon and the order was huge--enough for two people--but I ate it all :)

Read a lot about this place, had to try it. Wanted Eggs Benedict but was pushing time to get down the street to Maui Waveriders for Stand up Paddle Board lesson. Scrambled easy, sausage was great, prefer hash browns to that roasted potato thing but they were ok, Portion was huge, grabbed a jye-normous cinnamon roll covered in icing to... More
