Hard to walk past a good Gelato !

This place pumps all day and this is a testament to the nice staff and simply offering - great tasting gelato. Plenty of free samples and great flavours. May become a daily ritual if staying in or around Paia.

So you are in Maui and you have to take the Road to Hana, right? And part of that is to pick up the picnic lunch in Paia. The Hana Bay Picnic Co is as good of place as any to pack up lunch. The service was good. They obviously have it down to an art form. Sandwiches were a... More

So we had several samples. The coconut-ehhh, salted caramel-nope, mango-ehhh, and vanilla. Let me tell you now the vanilla tasted like creamy liquid wedding cake. So delicious I will have dreams about it!!! Quite frankly one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. Mediums are 5.95 and smalls are 4.95.

Fast and efficient but nothing special here in the way of sandwich choices. They do offer a cooler bag for 8 bucks but do not have ice. You can buy ice in the quick mart next door for a few bucks. The gelato looked great but we visited very early. We found so many food choices on the actual road... More

We came here because everyone said we HAD to come here to start our trip to Hana. I would have rather packed a lunch from a sandwich from the previous day, than have waited till 7am for the shop to open. The sandwiches weren't bad, but nothing special to me. The whole "Hana hype" made no sense to me. You... More

Basic, saran-wrapped sammiches. Cheese, meat, and a piece of lettuce between two slices of bread. This is the same place as Ono Gelato, but they only sell sammiches until 3:30pm.

After reviewing many of the options for picnic lunch/sandwich for trip to Hana, I chose to stop here for a sandwich. Staff is very friendly and shop is very easy to find. Great variety to choose from. I ordered the Shaka (roast turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, sprouts, provolone, and basil mayo on a house panini). Order took just a few... More

We went here a few times during our stay! They have great options for lunch but my favorite was to end the night with some of their delicious gelato -- tons of options!

So disappointed...our favorite Ono Gelato has been replaced by the Picnic Company store. Sure...it's okay...good flavors but just not as great as it used to be! Highly inflated prices also for the very delicious Anahola granola and trail mix packages. A disappointing loss for Paia....

We stopped here and got sandwiches because CJ's in Lahaina didn't open until 7am and we wanted to get an earlier start. We used CJ's in the past and liked it. HBPC made great sandwiches and cookies for our Road to Hana trip and everyone enjoyed what they got. The best part about them, however, is that they have GREAT... More
