lunch spots in Maalaea?

Mom is a vegetarian and we'll be driving from the OGG airport to our Westin around lunchtime. Maalaea looks like a nice stopping place for lunch. Any suggestions?

I also posted this in the Kahului thread, but I wasn't sure where to post, nor where to eat, so forgive me for the duplicity.

Thanks for any tips!

In our 2 times trying out Leoda's this past winter, I agree with sw. Somewhat overpriced for both the pies and food. I got better pastries at Foodland Farms and far cheaper.

For an "in-transit" lunch stop I would probably pick Seascape at the Maui Ocean Center. It's good, with a nice view and lots of island breeze. I would save Waterfront for a day when I wasn't tired from flying and in a hurry to get to my lodging. It is a special place, and should be savored when you are settled into your relaxed Maui mode.

Re: Costco hot dogs -- must not have my tongue poking into my cheek hard enough. LOL. As for Leoda's -- for most folks, the attraction there is the pie, not the view. Still miss Chez Paul, though.

New solution: lunch in Paia with my friends who live there and have the day off from work!

No expensive pies for my Mom! LOL

Lunch in Paia sounds great! Where do your local friends propose that you eat? We love Cafe Mambo. Milagro and Flatbread are very vegetarian friendly, I think. Try Ono Gelato for dessert!

Fresh Mint or Flatbread are what we are thinking about. And, I definitely plan to take Mom for gelato at Ono Gelato! I had some the last time I was in Paia and it was divine!

Beach bums is Maalaea other than that Carl's Junior but I think they are over priced at carl's Junior.
