Tasty sandwiches and burgers

Had the Ahi fish sandwich for lunch with a salad. It was delicious. Prices were reasonable for Paia. We will definitely stop by on our next trip.

If you are shopping or coming back from the beach or Hana and you are hungry, stop in and get ready for something spectacular! Order the pork fajitas- you won't be disappointed. Beyond tender pieces of pork with all of the fixings will fill you up quickly and leave you craving more. Delicious!!! Can't wait to go back and try... More

Fresh, local, seasonal cuisine doesn't have to be expensive to be delicious. We've eaten twice at Cafe Mambo and both visits were exceptional. It's a Funky place, decorated in vibrant tropical colors and the work of local Artists. Windows and doors are always open, and fans move the air around to a jazzy, Island, Reggae sound track. To those in... More

We went to visit the cute little village of Paia and were there for lunch. We wandered down the street and found this cute little cafe and decided to try it. I ordered the Slow cooked Kailua pork and rice and it was fantastic!!! My mum had a salad with grilled fish and my sister had the Momo I think.... More

Stopped in at Cafe Mambo about 0730 to fuel up for the journey to Hana. Nice casual local feel. Real people with honest smiles work here. Food was delicious and hearty. Filled the hole in my stomach for hours. I had a breakfast burrito with the works. Can't remember the name, but every dish I saw looked ono. Wife had... More

My first trip in was for Breakfast. The food was just perfect...it just had a little extra something...maybe it was the atmosphere! Anyway, had to go back and try some lunch...the Mai Tais and Pork Sandwich were superb!

Nice inviting cafe. All the meals that came out looked delicious. My partner ordered breakfast burritos which was the pick. The burritos were filled with egg, cheese, rice, chorizo mince. Yummo! I would return just for their delectable burritos.The pancakes were mediocre as they were dead thin, over cooked and lacked flavour.

Either in a sandwich or on a salad, the crispy duck at Cafe Mambo is a must-try in Maui. Friendly staff and a casual atmosphere

We stopped for breakfast while trying to find the surfboard fence. They have a great menu selection. I had the ham and cheese croissant which was fresh and hot. My son wanted the loco moco which they serve all day. The service was excellent and quick. We enjoyed the beautiful artwork and pictures that adorn this great eclectic eatery. A... More

I love the mediteranian food here, it's also a pretty good place for kids, the service is not the fastest but the atmosphere is really upbeat and fun.
