We had breakfast here twice and the food is just wonderful! The portions were huge and we just loved the food! The pancakes were huge and the local fare like loco moco was yummy! On top of that, the coffee was delicious even though I'm not a coffee drinker but my husband loves it and it's a huge cup too!... More

First off, be prepared that this is a funky little café. Cash only, order at the counter and don't take a table until you have your food. You sit outside and there are Maui birds visiting you guaranteed. Once you get over that, you can sit down and have one of the largest, best-valued, most delicious breakfasts in the area.

My sister and I loved Kihei Caffe! We came 3-4X over our 10 day stay. It is located across from one of the Kamaole beaches. We tried the banana macadamia pancakes, the loco moco, pork fried rice, and the papaya delight. All were delicious. The only miss was the strawberry pancakes, which were strawberry syrup on top of a stack... More

We ate breakfast there twice. The portions are huge and very flavorful. The service is quick and amazing. Over the course of the 2 breakfasts we had the pork fried rice with 2 eggs on top, the burrito. the fruit salad and the pancakes (as big as the plate). This will become a regular breakfast spot for us when we... More

Ok, so it's not much to look at. But the food is excellent, the prices are reasonable, and the staff is great. Perfect place to stop for breakfast when heading to Makena Beach for a kayaking tour. FYI, cash only.

The portions, flavors, and service here is amazing! My family ordered the loco moco, eggs benedict, and omelette and everyone was pleased. We had enough leftovers for breakfast the next day and it was still good! Yummy Kihei Caffe!

After looking at reviews online, my husband convinced me we had to go here during our honeymoon. After having a $40 breakfast buffet at the Four Seasons the day before (which was GREAT btw), I was skeptical to get out of my resort atmosphere as give it a try. Wow! And I glad we did! The line was out the... More

Stopped for breakfast at 6am. Oh my goodness! Local dishes and serving sizes are gigantic! French toast, Banana/mac pancakes with coconut syrup. You really can't go wrong. But bring cash. They only take cash and you'll need a bunch considering it's for breakfast.
