Great surprise!

We've been here three years in a row, and we've never stopped in. This week my husband and I swung in for breakfast. Sat outside, and had a really nice waiter. First off- coffee!! It arrived and I knew it was going to be awesome. The crema, and the silkiness I could tell was done on an Italian machine. The... More

Wow . . . . What a little oasis of yum hidden in a rustic storefront on a side street in Paia. We came upon it, on happenstance, when our trip to the north shore of Maui was waylaid by morning showers. We decided to look up a spot for coffee on tripadvisor, and this place popped up. We walked... More

If you can handle the fly's, it is the yummiest crepe eatery to hit before you enjoy the beach in Paia. Any beach. I'm not sure how many there are. The restaurant has a variety of delicious options from classic breakfast to indian flavours. Oh and their coffee is %$&*!!@# awesome. Can't wait to go back

Last time I was on Maui my wife and I used to stop by at Café des amis every other day for a crepes, a salad or other creative healthy treats. Crepes, in particular, were really great. Coffee, too, was, in a European perspective, pretty good. Actually, the best we had the island. Friendly staff and high-quality ingredients.

The food here is delicious. I especially liked the savoury crepe. The prices are also reasonable for Maui. But the service was on the slower side. Looking around at the other tables I could see people getting frustrated with the wait, which tends to affect the atmosphere of a place. So don't come here starving or in a hurry. Come... More

It was a cosy, super busy small cafe on Baldwin street with a very interesting menu. They had breakfast crepes, sweet crepes, crepes with cheese, veggies, ham, etc. I had the Indian Curry with chicken which was the most delicious meal I've had for ever. It was served with brown rice, and my choice of mango sweet chutney on the... More

My husband and I enjoyed freshly prepared, warm crepes, and coffiee on the garden terrace after a bike ride. Both the savory and sweet crepes were delicious. We liked it so much, we went back for seconds later in the week, which is pretty unusual for us as we are ALWAYS trying NEW places and were only in Hawaii for... More

Since we stayed close by, we had several breakfasts, lunches and dinners at the place. The crepes and curries we tried were all great. I especially liked the Nutella crepe, the honey and almond crepe, the Italian lentil stew crepe, the fish curry and the prawn curry. Only thing that disappointed was the seafood stew. Prices are also very reasonable... More

Had their strawberry crêpes and a coffee on my way to walk in Haleakalā Volcano. The crêpes were delicious with just the right amount of strawberries, cream and just the right thickness. Highly recommended.
