I went to Cafe Des Amis twice during my recent stay on Maui and absolutely loved it! The food was delicious and the ambiance (either indoor or outside seating is available) is very warm and inviting. The staff was friendly and the prices are not unreasonable, especially considering portion sizes. It's a perfect spot to stop on your way to... More

Number 1. The crepes here are awesome. I had a lentil and tomato festival savory crepe that hit that wonderful spot on my taste-buds usually reserved for Italian food. And I hit this joint on just the right evening: the duo Mana Brasil was playing samba in the courtyard. Beautiful guitarwork by Bita Fonseca, and singing set the mood just... More

Came here to try out the food based on the ratings. Unfortunately we walk in and were not acknowledged whatsoever. Since their since said that we can seat ourselves we did so out in the patio. After 15 minutes of being ignored wr decided we were not going to wait any longer and headed down the street. Can't rate the... More

We were driving into Paia after coming back from the road to Hana and decided to stop and find somewhere for an evening meal. We wisely chose Cafe Des Amis and both had a curry with Banana, Toffee and cream crepe to share for desert. The curry was a very good home cooked meal and the crepe was yummy! The... More

Any chance I get to go into Paia, I visit here. I have tried just about all of their crepes. My favorites: the green apple, Gruyere cheese and black pepper, also the ham, cheese and egg and of course the nutella with bananas. Get there early, it does fill up especially the weekends. Don't wear heels, they will sink into... More

By far the best coffee we found on Maui (indeed in Hawaii). The breakfast crepes will set you up for the day ahead.

We really enjoyed our food here on the way back from the road to Hana. We had the Mediterranean Stew which was $22 but worth the money. Fresh Ahi and shrimp and a sublime sauce. The kids shared a chicken curry which was nicely spiced for kids. A lot of flavour but not too hot. The kids had a Nutella... More

Friends of mine have been here before so I knew I'd be in good hands. ATMOSPHERE: The indoor portion is pretty tiny and open-air. The outdoor courtyard with gravel floor is pretty spacious and protected from the elements by the building walls, eaves, and umbrellas. MENU: Savory and sweet crepes, and different curries. FOOD: Ham & gruyere crepe - I... More

The atmosphere here is really great…nice to sit outside under the umbrellas and lights. They have curry and crepes. Their savory crepes are my favorite.
