They do not take credit, so be prepared. Didn't know that until there. Food is well prepared and delicious. We eat outside a bunch, but there seemed to be many more bugs and birds lurking around this place. Maybe they read trip adviser as well. Doubt we go back, but this place draws a huge crowd for breakfast.

This little gen was amazing. The food was affordable and delicious. This is my second visit to Hawaii and I finally tried a loco moco. My goodness it was delicious. I had the version with fried rice. It didn't disappoint. My husband had an omelette. I ordered a sis wife Spam to see what's the big deal. It was actually... More

This is the best little caffe around. We visited in August 2016 and it was so good, we had to go back a second time. I had the macadamia nut, banana french toast and it was the best french toast I have ever had. I still dream about it. If you visit Maui, you have got to make a point... More

During our short time in Maui, my wife and I ate at this restaurant twice, and both breakfasts were very good. We would both recommend the French toast with some of the added toppings as the best dish here. The most important thing to know in advance about this restaurant is that is cash only.

This place has a line but dont let it fool you , it goes by quick. I had the eggs benedict. They were amazing. My bf had the chicken fried steak , it was equally yummy. Definitely have breakfast there.

Decent prices and tasty food. This place is no nonsense and fast service. You order and pay at the register, cash only, and they bring your food out to you in the outdoor-only seating area. The view is of S. Kihei Rd, with a partial glimpse of Kamaole beach and the park, which is across the street. I had breakfast... More

We stopped by for breakfast and discovered that this place is fantastic!! Food quantity is great for a starving bear and the taste and service are just as great. The dollar value is a single digit which for Maui is really amazing!!! We would return and you should check it out!!!

Went to the Kihei Cafe for Breakfast on our first day in Maui! The food was excellent! You get a lot of food for your money! It is a cash only restaurant so make sure your bring cash. Well worth the line to get in..or come early and skip the line!

We tried this little breakfast place while visiting Maui. It has outdoor seating and they only accept cash (though they do have an ATM on the premises in case you forget to bring any). My husband had the French toast. I had the Breakfast with two eggs, bacon, country potatoes, and a biscuit with gravy. My one year old daughter... More

First thing, they're open at 5 a.m. which is awesome for us East Coast travellers who are adjusting to the time zone. Don't blink, or you'll miss this place. Huge Kihei Kalama Village sign immediately in front of building. Great island feel and flavor. Cash only. Line out the door everytime we passed later in the day. Food quality excellent.
