Yummy!

Had the crispy duck burger. Sweet glaze, tender and full of flavor. Yummy! Recommended by locals and they were right.

We loved Cafe Mambo so much we had it twice in one day. The duck fajitas were amazing and the pulled pork sandwich was a favorite too. We couldn't believe how many choices were available (which is why we had it twice). The staff is some of the friendliest people we met in Maui and the casual vibe was perfect... More

Cafe Mambo served us a delicious meal after our day trip on the Road to Hana. There were many delicious choices and good vegetarian options available. No wait for our table, and the meal was served promptly. It has a hipster vibe and the whole family enjoyed eating here.

We had a great lunch at Cafe Mambo after hearing some great reviews from some locals. The place is really casual and you feel the Hawaiian spirit. The crispy duck burger and the duck fajitas were amazing. Our server was very nice and attentive. This restaurant is a great way to end a day traveling back from Hana, or biking... More

A friend recommended this place to us. Incredible pulled pork sandwich. We ended up driving over there twice for lunch, I had to have pulled pork the 2nd time too.

We stopped at the Cafe Mambo for lunch. The place was very busy. The staff were pleasant and accommodating. My family of 4 had 2 Island Fish sandwiches, 1 pork plate and 1 Mambo Bacon Burger. Everything was very good. With drinks and tip our bill was $82. Their fryer was broken the day we were there so there were... More

After seeing reviews, I think we at the wrong meal here. Came for dinner, but should have eaten breakfast. Service was absolutely wonderful, but food disappointing. The fish in the tacos was tough.

We was just riding around Paia and was looking for lunch. It was still early around 1030 am. They let us order off the lunch menu too. I hit the Blt, it was really good. It had a tomato salsa mayo on it that was really good. I got the home fries also and the onions were really a added... More

We make an annual visit to Charley's for breakfast. Unfortunately, we arrived after breakfast was being served. Upon their recommendation we ran around the corner to Cafe Mambo for breakfast, unfortunately they too had stopped serving breakfast. Upon seeing the , soon to be tear filled eyes of our disappointed 9 year old, they made a exception (for 1 only... More
