there's a line for a reason

no nonsense food. pork fried rice wasn't bad but the pancakes were heavenly! despite the 30 min wait in line, the cashier was upbeat and energetic for each and every customer order!

There was a line outside, but it moved quickly...the guy taking orders was very pleasant...I got the mac/banana French toast and my husband got the #1 breakfast, we also got one of the cinnabons to go (which was very very good). The food was just ok...really, nothing spectacular...more of tourist hype than an actually good restaurant spot....

We ate at Kihei Caffe 4 days while in Maui. The breakfasts are delicious and filling. If you want to avoid the giant lines, go early! We usually went around 6-7am and had little to no wait. If you go later the line will be out the door, though it moves fairly quickly. Seating can be difficult later on as... More

My wife and I had to try this after reading all the rave reviews. The food was just average, typical bacon and eggs, potatoes, toast, nothing tasted special or memorable. Cleanliness was questionable. The service was unexpectedly absent: you have to wait in a long line, (while a waitress gives you orders to squeeze closer together to strangers), order your... More

Kihei Café is a hole in the wall eatery directly across the street from a great beach. We ate breakfast there and I don't believe it is open for lunch or dinner. You have to wait in line, but it's worth it. I had French toast with macadamia nuts and banana slices, my son had the pancake version of the... More

The Food is made fresh so there's a reason you will have to wait quite a bit for your breakfast to be served and to get a table. But it's really worth it!! Had the best breakfast ever!

food is Excellent and there is enough to share for two people. My favorite is the banana macadamia nut pancakes. Least favorite is their eggs Benedict - but it is good too. I make a point of eating here every year when we come......never a disappointment. You line up to order your food and then find a table. Very busy,... More

We had read about the Kihei Caffe on TA. What a wonderful place this is! It's fun, energetic, bustling, and delicious. When you arrive, you get in line (and look at the menu). Then, you order inside at the counter, pay and give your name. Your meal is then brought to you (they call your name - very friendly) at... More

These are the largest rolls I've ever seen and ate to die for a must have. They're addictive. I've been there 3 times this week. They also serve wonderful breakfast.
