A gem

I ate at this family-run restrauant twice during a recent Haleakala trip and both meals were fantastic. Set about halfway up the slopes of Haleakala, it is a great place to stop for a meal on your way to or from the summit. The menu is simple but the food is delicious.

This is a place perched on the side of the mountain with a great view of the valley and the West Maui Mountains. The food is simple and inexpensive and service is pretty quick considering it's only the owners doing the cooking and the tables. Prices are extremely reasonable. The menu is limited but there's something for everyone. The dining... More

My family and I had breakfast on the covered patio while it was raining, which was actually very nice! My son had pancakes, which were very good and seemed to be made from scratch. My wife had French toast, which was a large portion and she enjoyed as well. I had the eggs Benedict , which they seem to be... More

We stopped here for lunch to take a break biking Haleakaka mountain. We ordered the pork sandwich an the hamburger and topped it off with apple pie alamode. All were excellent, especially the pork. We sat outside and had a great view of Maui.

Stopped for lunch with family on the way up the mountain and enjoyed it completely. The staff was very friendly, and setting is charming. We sat outside near the pizza oven. The pizza guy from SoCal provided good conversation. The kids enjoyed walking through the garden and checking out the market next door. Will return if in Maui again.

Family restaurant with good home cooking. Yes, it is a good place to stop after visiting the crater. The price is not expensive just average range. The menu is limited, but worth trying. The food is very delicious!!!!

Ate breakfast here after our sunrise at Haleakala crater. Delicious. A little expensive but pretty typical for Maui.

The Kula Sandalwoods Restaurant may be the first place you can stop as you come back from Haleakala. Very nice place to hang out and get some food. Sometimes it can be a bit crowded. The scenery is beautiful

Fantastic pulled pork sandwiches and delicious burgers. The cafe was very clean and the service was pleasant. We had lunch there after doing the zip line near by. We then headed up to the summit, happy on a full stomach.

After a morning up on Haleakala, we came back for lunch at this cute little roadside inn. The Pork sandwich, the slaw, the burgers etc were all delicious, and fairly inexpensive for Maui. A great place to stop for lunch, either dining inside or out on the patio.
