Best Breakfast in Kihei!

This is the most amazing little café in Kihei. We ate here several times for breakfast during our stay, and my only regret is that I wasn't able to eat here every day. The macadamia nut French toast is to die for! Great little patio to sit outside and watch the world wake up. It can be VERY... read more

My go to when in Kihei for breakfast. Great location for people watching, excellent fresh baked pastries, strong coffee and breakfast burritos. Portions are huge, enough for two and price is as reasonable as you can get on Maui. Opens early and usually a long line but moves fast, cash only and find your own table and you will have... More

Quaint atmosphere, we were there for breakfast. There are a lot of options. It was busy and you go thru a maze to order, get your drink option and then find an available seat. You get your own water and coffee. I had a Veggie Scramble that was enough for two. It lacked flavor and ketchup was a cure all.... More

Make sure you look at the specials menu, as we missed it the first time around but they let us change our order. Ordered the blackened fish eggs benedict- they were very innovative and delish! The brioche French toast was also very yummy. I will definitely be back next time we come to Maui! We arrived around 6am b/c we... More

This was our first meal in Hawaii after the long trip from Michigan. We came for breakfast on recommendation of a coworker. I had a breakfast burrito and my husband had another egg dish. It was huge portions and it was delicious. It seemed pricier than what we're used to in Michigan but we were aware food was going to... More

Our family of 5 are here for lunch at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. My husband and I had a fish sandwich which we ordered blackened. They definitely were far from blackened (although the waitress told us that was there version of blackened-pale yellow, not a speck of seasoning or a bit of flavor). My husband's fish was completely... More

In this day of age when a person does not carry much cash have some on hand so you can visit here. Fairly long line for breakfast even at 7:30 AM but line moves fast and is worth it. Extensive breakfast options but portions are huge.

Read the reviews, go, enjoy your great breakfast! My favorites are the banana/mac pancakes, the cinnamon roll and mac nut topped sticky bun. Staff is always super friendly!

We ate at Kihei Cafe for breakfast. We waited a long time to place our order. The line was very long, which was a sign the food would be good and it was worth the wait. I ordered the Fried Rice with Eggs and it was awesome. I took half home for later. My husband had an omlette and was... More

This is our favorite spot for breakfast in Kihei. Good selection and variety, and good cinnamon rolls too.
