Exceeds expectations

A fine spot for a sandwich or a burger (each of which we had). Both are generously proportioned, so no need for sides. The view of the harbour is somewhat obstructed by the street level umbrellas and the large sign out front, and there is a parking lot between you and the harbour. But we didn't... read more

Stopped here for a quick breakfast burrito after a sunrise whale watch trip. Got the Bacon breakfast burrito. It was fresh and tasty. Would definitely go back again. Looks like it just changed hands as they were changing some of the decor and menu. Ate here last year same time when it first opened and the food wasn't nearly as... More

I had the 8 oz New York Steak and my wife had Chicken Thighs with mushroom sauce and rice.My steak was great & cooked to order and cost only $9.99. The chicken was also great and at $6.50 was very tasty and we had more than we could eat. We went back to our condo but they had a nice... More

Tucked away down the hill from the mini mall just a short walk is a great spot for lunch. Big menu with lots of choices. A seemingly very shortsighted law says you can buy a beer; but can't drink it on site with your lunch. Sounds like politics of revenge of some sort. Anyway, if you want a beer, get... More

We didn't really eat a meal here, but my husband got me a banana muffin with macadamia nuts to go. He had a bagel with cream cheese. The price for both was around $11, which I thought was a bit much, however both tasted great. When we walked by, there were always people eating inside and outside. The general store... More

The breakfast burrito with bacon was great after whale watching at the Pacific Whale Foundation. Yum :) I wish it had a starch in it though - beans? rice? potato? Otherwise, it was really tasty and great scrambled eggs and veggies in the burrito.

It is easy to miss this store/cafe location as it is tucked in the corner of the Maalaea Harbor and Marina across from the coast guard station. However, it makes the best fresh fish sandwiches, perhaps on the island! We've only had their grilled or blackened mahi mahi sandwich, but it is the best. This also is a store, but... More

Stopped in this store a few times for sandwiches, fruit and some minor but essential items. The fruit and sandwiches were very good as was the coffee. I would have liked to had a chance to enjoy my food on their terrace, but sadly we didn't have time.
