What time are you wanting to leave your condo? There are some great choices in Paia for this, but if you leave TOO early, they may not be open yet! You may want to think about picking up a picnic lunch the night before. It isn't as fresh then, but at least you can get an early start to the day. You will need the extra time if you plan on hiking the Pipiwai Trail at Oheo Gulch. Well worth it too!

We have used the Maui Grown Market along the road at mile marker 12 or 13 I think. This is the place that used to rent dogs for the trip .... lol. Hopefully it is still there because they did a great job putting together a lunch.

Last trip or two we've done our own. Pre made sandwiches from safe way, a bag of chips, some bottled water and fruit. More food, less money. Packed including our collapsible cooler.

We have gotten some great lunches for the beach at CJ's Deli in Kaanapali! Stopped in for breakfast and got lunch to go!

We too like to stop by Maui Grown Market to grab sandwiches. They make a killer fish sandwich. It is after the town of Paia, but the last place to buy food before you enter Hana drive. It is a small general store, so you can also pick up chips and drinks.

If you do start very, very early, instead of picking up lunch on the way, you can arrive the Town of Hana around lunch time, and eat lunch at a local place there. We did this once, had some type of BBQ at a local causal restaurant in the town of Hana.

I think it is plenty early to leave West Maui around 7 or 8 am for Hana. By the time you arrive Paia, there are lots of places in paia that sell picnic lunches. It isn't necessary to buy them the day before or in Lahaina.
