The food was fresh light and tasty. It is a fine place to stop after Haleakala for a quick lunch or snack. Menu and options are limited, had the fish sandwich and it was fine. Service was fine, it was not busy at the time we arrived.

Stopped in our way back from the park. Had the place to ourselves. The pork BBQ sandwich was yummy. The fish sandwich was a bit bland, but fine for a quick lunch. The service was pleasant and attentive. Recommended.

Good service. Simple menu with something for everyone. Try the eggs benedict - just about the best I've ever had. Sit next to the wood-stove if you're still chilled after visiting Haleakala.

We went there when we biked down the volcano with the Maui Mountain Cruisers. There is a mandatory 18% tip if you are in a bicycle group. This means the service is non-existent and you have to pay for a great service. The food is average, the potatoes have no taste and there are no fruits in the plate except... More

Right out of the national park makes this a great place for post sunrise breakfast. Looks newly remodeled with plenty of seating with outside options. Menu not too extensive but hits all the basics. Food was simple and the wait can be a little long. Coffee average. The location forgives most of the cafe's shortcomings though.

I like the food and the vibe here and I think it's a tad under rated. Being a regular, I know how consistently good it is. I also like the family that owns the place. They are good folks doing a good business.

If you are like me and woke up at 2am to see the sunrise at Haleakala, then chances are you are hungry and wanting something to warm you up! Sadly the visitors center isn't even open when you make your way down from the summit, so you head out to Kula to explore, your tummy grubmles, and you check the... More

We have had breakfast at the Sandalwoods several times on different visits to Maui (my boyfriend is a paraglider and the flypark is very close). This time we decided to spend some time upcountry. We book the first and the last two nights of our trip there. First a word on the breakfast. As somebody has mentioned, yes, the service... More

You have gotta try the Eggs Benedict for breakfast ... just about the the best I've ever eaten. My wife and I sat by the warm wood-burning stove and our meals arrived in no time. My wife ordered the open-faced country omelette ... delicious! The cafe walls are lava rock and this reminded us of the charm of old Hawaii.... More

My family has been visiting Jamie and his family for years. We love the friendly atmosphere and the good food. It is a beautiful location as well. It is also a decent price (for Maui). We are here visiting for 5 days and have spent 3 mornings eating there. Thanks Jamie!
