Leader of the Pack
Let your mouth savor the flavor of this sensational burger with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sweet Maui onions, and thousand island dressing.
Big Bopper
Try listening to "ChantillyLace" while eating the juciest double burger (hey, that's 12 ounces of beef). It will tantelize your taste buds! Dressed with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sweet Maui onions and thousand island dressing.
Remember watching the Cartwright's on Sunday night? If you have the appetite of Hoss and Ben, then try your chops on this. Three burger patties (yep, that's more than a pound of beef) all loaded up on a French roll with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sweet Maui onions and thousand island dressing. Juice will be dripping down your arms.
This traditional Patti-Melt is grilled on Rye with American cheese dressed with grilled onions and thousand island dressing.
Bogy Burger
Our delicious burger tipped with bacon and cheese. Dressed with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sweet Maui onions, and thousand island dressing.
Marilyn Burger
Some like it hot. All love this luscious burger covered with meleted Jack cheese and mild green Ortega chili. Dressed with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, sweet Maui onions, and thousand island dressing.
The Duke
You can taste the great old West when you sink your teeth into this burger, starting with two delicious strips of bacon, melted cheese and golden onion rings, all covered in our special BBQ sauce.
When Tony Bennet sang, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" his appetite stayed here at the Cool Cat Café. A burger on grilled sourdough with your choice of Jack, Swiss, or American melted cheese, mayo, lettuce, and tomatoes. Grilled onion on request.
La Bamba Burger
This incredible edible burger comes smothered with our mouth-watering chili topped with Cheddar cheese & sweet Maui onions. It's a hot one.
This burger is served open-faced on grilled sourdough, smothered with chili, four kinds of cheese and sweet Maui onions. Messy and spicy.

This place was very loud and hard to hear each other talk. Staff was ok and food was ok. Average but a bit pricey for value.

Yes, we know Maui is probably not a burger lovers choice but if you’re looking for a good one like we were on a cold rainy day, this is the place for you! And get a basket of ‘frings’—onion rings and fries—oh so good!!

Great atmosphere for a burger place. Great food, service and prices. Lahaina is a quirky little town with lots to offer. Highly recommend you spend some time here and encourage you to try the Cool Cat. A trip back in time.

Note sure about the separate menu...our son is 12 and eats like he’s 40...but the atmosphere was good for him too.
