Funky, eclectic locally sourced food

Great spot to eat lunch, all original dishes locally sourced. The braised beef pappardelle was delicious! We ate in the courtyard, where you can't have wine or beer, but a great experience.

I've definitely ate at better breakfast joints. The food was flavorful but spendy. The servers were nice. When they noticed me making a bad face from spoiled milk in my coffee, they came over and got me a fresh cup right away. Went there because our tour guide suggest it, but I wouldn't recommend it to friends.

We dropped in for a quick lunch and it was great! Very tasty soup, awesome salad of very fresh locally sourced lettuces and vegetables tossed in a basil pesto vinaigrette. Very quick service and friendly attentive staff. We will definitely return!

We went on a Sunday morning, there's not that many places open in Makawao on Sunday. It was nice to sit outside, and they let me bring my dog, who sat at the table outside with us. A nice ambiance, inside and out, and the staff is friendly and nice. We ordered the mushroom omelet and the eggs benedict. My... More

Had lunch there today. Gotta say fresh, tasty soup and sandwich. Good bang for your buck!!!! Service was good. If I had to make a suggestion... Maybe offer having the servers take your orders instead of going up to the counter to place your order.

The Waitress was extremely rude. Had no pride in her work, and did not seem to want to be there or answer our questions. Then on our way out we walked on the same rude waitress in the restrooms doing drugs with the door wide open! I made sure to get her name Elizabeth? We were appalled at what we... More

The decor is funky at best, dumpy at worst. Mentioned to the server that I have food allergies, she shrugged and raised her eyebrows. That did not inspire confidence in the least. The place just does not seem clean, and my party would not order, since I would not feel safe eating there, we left.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Love the setting and the food is great. It's charming and casual. I love sitting under the large tree and having the food brought out in the cool shade.

I love Market Fresh Bistro for their passion about serving local food and supporting local farmers. The food is fresh, presentation is beautiful, and quality is consistent. Justin Pardo, David and Olivia created a great little restaurant tucked away in the Makawao Courtyard.

Thoroughly enjoyed the time we were there. The food was tasty and the coffee was good. Sitting outside in the courtyard was very relaxing.
