I stopped here for a lime and cane sugar pancake and a coffee. Both were delicious and reasonably priced. The menu also includes salads and Indian dishes as well as a large range of fruit smoothies.

We ate lunch here on a Sunday and loved it. We visited the restaurant last year and it was just as good this year. The menu is varied enough for all with curries, crepes, and wraps and everything is tasty. We had the shrimp curry, chicken crepe, ham and cheese crepe and 2 sweet crepes and all were excellent. There... More

This place was absolutely one of the best places we ate at on Maui. It's a small little restaurant worth big flavor. The mango Chutney was delightful and tasty. I ate the shrimp curry wrap ... Definitely big enough. It came looking like a burrito but was filled with one of the best curries that I've tasted. The atmosphere was... More

We left our husbands here for the afternoon, great corner spot for people watching and drinking long boards and having some lovely guacomole and dips.

This place was highly recommended by the inn I was staying at for their lilikoi margaritas. One afternoon I excitedly showed up for happy hour only to discover they were out of lilikoi. Womp womp womp.... Still good happy hour deals. Got the catch of the day curry and damn was it good. Rice cooked to perfection as well. Service... More

Good menu, nice service and something a little different here in terms of crepes, curry or salad on menu (I had the goats cheese salad which was very nice). There was a guitarist on too which was great with the atmosphere. Drinks a little pricey ($6 for a can of beer and $11 cocktail seems a lot, even in the... More

This place had delicious pastry and was a great place to stop and rest during a busy day on the island. I was with friends and everyone loved the fresh desserts and drinks. we even bought extra pastry for the car ride.

I had the ham and cheese crepe and it was a good hearty meal to start the day. The waitress was super nice and guided our kids with choices. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

Had dinner here with my father in law as the rest of our vacation crew went surfing to Lahaina. It was recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. Great setting on one of the two main streets in Paia, nice atmosphere, there was a singer/musician enhancing the calm laid-back atmosphere. The food was good: curry shrimp, crepe desert and... More

A nice simple place but with a great choice of delicious plates for breakfast, as well as coffee and co. The atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly so we've got a great experience of an 11 o'clock coffee with crepes all'americana.

Thank sysoevan
