We actually walked out of this place. We were lining up to order inside their very cramped area and like everyone else, we were slow walking in line as we were looking at the menu written on their boards around the place. As we were waiting, the staff took turns yelling for people to move or stay out of the... More

This place is not fancy....at all. But let me say, the long line and wait are worth it. We stopped in for breakfast prior to surfing- so good. Amazing green smoothies, the eggs and veggies were so fresh. I bought a pineapple muffin to "splurge"- so worth it! It is cash only, but very affordable. We enjoyed eating outisde looking... More

The Kihei cafe is a local favorite for breakfast. It's very casual outdoor seating, no frills but the food is great. Make sure to try the banana Mac-nut pancakes. Also be sure to get there early because it does get crowded in the mornings. There is no reserved seating so you can always get a seat, you'll just have to... More

My husband and I really enoyed our breakfast here. He ordered the French toast and I had sausage, eggs, home fries and a biscuit. Overall, everything was good, including the coffee. Even with the long line, it didn't take us all that long to get our food. We'll have to make our way back the next time we are on... More

Grabbed breakfast here on our first morning in Maui. A fun place with outdoor seating overlooking the activity in Kihei. Fantastic muffin selection and very tasty grub. My wife had the fruit plate and was not disappointed - lots of fresh fruit!

Get here early and expect a line. Don't worry, it moves fast. The cashier was funny, friendly and was happy to make recommendations. Pay for your food and head outside and wait for a speedy food runner to bring your plate of hot yummy breakfast goodness! True to local custom, portions are large enough to share so bring an empty...

This was recommended by one the conceierge ladies at our resort. It was a short drive away. You walk up to order and then sit down outside to eat. I had french toast and my husband had pork fried rice. Both were delicious. The coffee was excellent too. The people were very friendly and this was the cheapest meal we... More

I like to think I'm a girl with simple needs when it comes to breakfast. Potatoes (or other starch), pork products of a sort, fried egg(s) on top with the yolk oozing to coat everything below. The pork-fried rice here more than met the ticket--although I would have loved some Sriracha (only saw Tapatio on the table). I was shocked... More

Or brunch or lunch too! We enjoyed Kihei caffe for a late brunch - great dive with friendly service and delicious food! Staff was patient with my indecisive young kids and we all ate every bite!
