We are apparently in the minority here, but we did not enjoy eating here at all. I truly hate to leave a low rating, but need to be honest. We arrived around 8:30 am for breakfast. The line is long, and it's very disorganized. After you order and pay, cash only BTW, you have to watch for a table to... More

We love to try new restaurants while visiting new places, but after eating breakfast at Kihei Cafe, we ended up eating there 4 more time during our stay. Everything on the menu was fantastic, and the large portions kept us fueled up for the day. Bonus: During our last visit, my wife was trying to talk me in to trying... More

One of the most popular breakfast spots on Kihei right across from Kalama Beach. Always busy, you place your order inside and then they bring it to you outside. Outstanding omelets!

We skeptically took the recommendation of a local and are we glad we did! This little cafe, with all outside street seating was interesting and had great food. They open around 5 am and start serving breakfast at 5:30. We stopped in for breakfast and the line was 20 deep. You have to go inside to the counter and order.... More

We love Kihei Caffe. We discovered it 3 years ago & it quickly became our "go-to" for breakfast. We are now back vacationing in Maui & I'm happy to report that it is still one of favorites. They must use a whole carton of eggs for their omelets. They are huge. You could definitely share the omelets. And the banana,... More

Great food, decent price, awesome view! Standing in line is kind of hot, but most definitely worth it.... I've been every morning of this trip and will go back tomorrow!

This is by far the best breakfast place on Maui, we went 4 mornings in a row tried a few different things and were never disappointed. My personal favorite is the burrito (supreme, w/ chorizo). This thing is absolutely massive; come hungry, or plan on splitting with someone. Prices are very good and portions are very large, so it's a... More
