My wife were wandering around Paia at lunchtime, and after viewing the options (and of course checking TA reviews), we popped in, the first customers of the day. Good choice! It's a funky place that would look suitable for a place like Berkeley. Interesting artwork,...etc., and very clean. Service was very friendly and efficient. I had the kalua pork plate, an excellent choice since it's a Hawaiian specialty and it was very tasty, and it went very well with a local draft beer. My wife had the BLT which featured the most bacon I've ever seen in a sandwich. Prices were very reasonable by Maui standards. What's not to like? 2 thumbs up!More

Nice casual place for a satisfying lunch. Nothing fancy but a chilled Maui vibe. Beer on tap, reasonably priced drinks and a fun Mexican / island menu.

Very good lunch. We enjoyed burgers and beer (and root beer). Tasty French fries. Great service! We got a happy hour deal of burger and beer for $11.

We ate here while killing time before our flight out of OGG. It was good meal, good service, and our most inexpensive meal of the entire tripe. My husband ordered a beer and burger for $11. I had a beyond meat burger which was good....It is open air so we sat beside a window and watched it rain. They had a good variety of good, and good-looking desserts, although we did not order one.More

Only a 3 because it’s not the most Hawaiian of eats...typical bar food with a lilikoi mojito option. Great tho, but also did not have light rum which was what most of their cocktails are made with. Easy place for happy hour location wise if...you’re staying on Baldwin.More

Stopped in here as we were driving back from the Road to Hana. What a great find! Loved the Kalua Pork and my husband and son loved the crispy duck fajitas. Highly recommend!

Aloha, my husband and I went to Cafe Mambo for lunch - very nice atmosphere and good service. We really enjoyed our selection: steak salad - spicy and juicy - and pork quesadillas - meltingly soft with nice flavours. I really encourage you to go....They are open breakfast, lunch & dinner and just launched a new dish: Authentic fresh Italian Lasagna to go. Seems delichMore

My husband and I stopped here for lunch as it looked casual and inviting and the menu looked good. Service was quick and friendly. I had the salad with the fish of the day, and my husband enjoyed a great burger with a generous serving...of fries. Drinks are available, but I opted for a delicious fruit tea. The prices seemed reasonable and it appeared to be a favorite of locals as well. Unlike some of the other reviews, we didn't find parking such an issue. Street parking appeared to be a challenge but we only paid a couple dollars for parking in a lot just down the block.More
