My other absolute favorite places on Maui. Had a fresh fish curry...and it was fantastic. It's casual..but prices on Maui are high. Splitting an appertizer, entree and iced treat w/tip is about $37.

This place has delicious food, but the staff seem a little unorganized. Our drink took a little no while to come out and one of us got two drunk nod by accident. They were having some issues with the sound system. One minute really loud, the next, very soft. Since we were right near a speaker, it was irksome. The... More

Love the cool vibe of this cafe. The food is good and healthy. I had a salad with so many wonderful ingredients, we were trying to figure out what they all were. The crepe dessert was so delicious.

I had breakfast here the other morning, and tried their gluten free crepe. I can't eat gluten due to celiac dz - and found most of maui gluten free friendly. This breakfast was so delicious, that I ordered a second sweet crepe - which I also inhaled!!! I could smell the curries they make there as well and will try... More

We stopped in the adorable paia town. The Tahiti fish is delicious and it's actually the real recipe. The curry was ok. I had a cheese tomatoes basil crepe, the dough was too thick but it was good. The Mai tai was good. I loved the atmosphere with plenty of young people and family. Good for vegetarian.

I had curry shrimp with coconut sauce and liked it. The crepes looked good but I didn't have room for more. Cute place in a cute town.

Stopped here for Sunday brunch after getting up at 2am to see the sunrise at Haleakala. The food was amazing. DH had ham & cheese breakfast crepe, I had spinach & feta breakfast crepe which was filling and very tasty. Our super fussy kids even managed to find food to eat. The nutella crepe was a very big hit! I... More

Café des Amis has a most excellent eclectic menu oriented toward Indian food. They have great salads great Cariese and great main courses. They also have a most excellent happy hour where beer, wine, and mixed drinks are half price. There is indoor seating and outdoor seating and the place is pet friendly Quite frankly the highlight of the place... More

We drove here to have lunch on a Sunday just for fun. The vegetarian crepes were delicious. They are not a "veggie" only café but we are veggies. Local charm and local food. And the bonus was the town itself is a real artist haven so we walked around and supported the local economy!
