Just wandering Paia looking for a tasty spot to grub and stumbled upon this little gem. The service was incredible (and beautiful) the food was impeccable and the booze hit the spot! I would definitely recommend this to any thirsty/hungry traveler, surfer or adventurer. P.s. the crepes are unreal delicious, a definite must try. I'm not saying the Nutella crepe... More

We were out touring the area and decided on Cafe Des Amis for lunch. Very casual outdoor seating next to very small interior cafe. Food was very tasty. Ordered the crepes, a ham and cheese, and the chicken with avocado. Both dishes came with a salad of greens dressed in a light balsamic. The crepes were very filling, not thin... More

We visit Maui 3 x a year and basically go there to dine at CDA. We have travelled around the world and it is by far our favorite place in the world. The people are wonderful and the food is pure, healthy and it never disappoints. The negative reviews are questionable. I ask, what planet are you from? Mahalo

We recently had lunch here. It was actually our second visit in 2 years, and one of my favorites in Paia City....This restaurant reminds me of the hippie restaurants in San Francisco in the 70's, with kind of a Mother Jones staff of ladies...but it works. Do not come here expecting a sandwich. Food is mainly curries and crepes....but boy... More

Too bad Paia has no decent place to eat out... Very slow service, food is never good, besides the Mediterranean plater and the nutella crepe. Ive waiting for 1 crepe with my latte for over a haft hour. As a Maui resident its disappointing that the very busy eateries in Paia dont step their game up and give us some... More

The nutella crepes were to die for...just perfect! The atmosphere was perfect because we were a little muddy from the Hana Highway. The staff was friendly and seated us right away, but it took a while for them to take our order. The fish and chicken curry was decent but we are of Sri Lankan descent so we have had... More

Fabulous shrimp curry. Over the top crepes. Fresh local produce. Every dish make from scratch. Friendly and professional service. Informal and comfortable setting. Reasonably priced. Perfect for families, dining alone, or dining with friends. What more can you ask for?

We went here on a recent trip to Maui. It was a second choice for breakfast. I was glad the first choice fell through. We were greeted by a friendly waitress, who took our order right away, and brought waters to the table. She was attentive and very friendly. We ordered the egg and cheese crepe. I got ham in...

In the little town of Paia on the road to Hana sits a sophisticated, cosmopolitan little restaurant that I treasure. Their seafood chowder is to die for, as well as their shrimp and curry wrap, and all their sweet and savoury crepes. I have been there for both lunch and dinner. In the evening they have live jazz with bands... More

Had a decent shrimp curry and a delicious fresh juice. Nice casual spot to drop in for a fast dining experience.
