Dropped our car off for service then drove over to Paia for breakfast. We walked down Baldwin Ave. and checked out five restaurants, deciding on the Cafe because they served smoothies. We ordered a strawberry/banana/passion fruit smoothie, passion fruit tea (very good), Paniolo breakfast; eggs, potatoes, bacon and sausage and Huevos Rancheros, amazing! The Rancheros were not the standard rancheros,... More

Loved all the restaurants in Paia that we went to (Cafe Des Amis, Flatbread) and Cafe Mambo. Came here for lunch after a killer surf session at Hookipa (small swell but still wiped us out). It was July-Dubai hot outside but as the inside was breezy cool. Ordered the Ahi burger which was the best ahi I've had in a... More

We had breakfast here after our bike ride from Haleakala. The service was friendly and the food excellent - we had breakfast burritos and quesadillas. Yummy drinks as well. Would definitely return.

This is the 2nd time that I have dined at Cafe Mambo's in the last month. I had the lamb stew & a cup of mocha. With the tip it was $25 which is more than I like to spend for lunch. The stew is made daily & was tasty but not really $18 worth. I liked the server but... More

We were looking for a place to pick up a picnic lunch or breakfast to go. Not many choices on the way to Hana so we stopped in. Appeared like a cute eclectic atmosphere. I asked about egg sandwiches.... we're from N.Y....a quick go to meal on the go. The woman being the counter states we don't have that here....(mind... More

We ended up here because the restaurant we wanted to eat at was closed for the day due to a water main break. Luckily we were there for happy hour (3p-6p) which brought the drink prices down 50%. ATMOSPHERE: It's a nonchalant open air older restaurant. The only view is of Baldwin Avenue and people walking by. MENU: Salads, burgers,... More

This is a cute place. It is popular with the locals. We ate here because honestly, there was a parking space available in front. We ordered of the ahi tuna melt and both disliked it very much. The bread was good the sauce was abundant but there was approximately three ounces of fish in it. And to top it off,... More

Was here in Feb 2014 and their Ahi burgers were the best food on the planet. This trip, the fish was not so good, and perhaps 1/3 as thick. Very disappointing. Came back again (dinner). Our waiter wandered up after a bit and said "Thoughts?". The one's I did have, "How about a 'good evening'", "How about telling us what's... More

The atmosphere, sitting next to the open windows with the cool breeze coming through, Awwww. Breakfast was delicious, we recommend the Veggie quesadilla and the Mambo Breakfast Special. Don't forget the Mimosas : )
