Excellent

My husband and I happened upon this place by accident, and we're so happy that we did! The service was pretty slow, but 1) they were VERY busy, and 2) we were on Island Time, why rush?! That being said, it was well worth the wait. I had a coconut curry wrap, and I'll be honest - we're going back... read more

We came here starving after deluded flights and hours of no sleep. Our rental owner recommended this place and we were so delighted- lovely food in a Funky setting to watch people walk by in paia. This was one of the most memorable and delicious meals we had on Maui. Go! And when you do I'll be back at home... More

This was one of the best meals we had in Maui. We had a savory and sweet crepe and both were absolutely delicious. The dressing on the salad was amazing. Not one scrap of food left on either of our plates. I highly recommend this place.

We needed lunch before our room was ready so the lovely folks at Paia Inn suggested Cafe Des Amis and what a great find! The restaurant is tucked in on Baldwin Ave and has a wonderful little courtyard for outdoor dining. We had lunch but it appears they have breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and happy hour). The menu has a... More

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.
