“Worth the wait”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Best breakfast on the island and worth the wait in line. opens early (5:30am) with breakfast till 11am and lunch tip 2pm. Don't miss the LocoMoco--try it with the fried rice; cinnamon rolls are great. Lots of food for the price

“Value for money breakfast!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We had breakfast here twice and the food is just wonderful! The portions were huge and we just loved the food! The pancakes were huge and the local fare like loco moco was yummy! On top of that, the coffee was delicious even though I'm not a coffee drinker but my husband loves it and it's a huge cup too! My favorite breakfast cafe at Kihei!

“Come if you're hungry”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

First off, be prepared that this is a funky little café. Cash only, order at the counter and don't take a table until you have your food. You sit outside and there are Maui birds visiting you guaranteed. Once you get over that, you can sit down and have one of the largest, best-valued, most delicious breakfasts in the area.

“Great food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

My sister and I loved Kihei Caffe! We came 3-4X over our 10 day stay. It is located across from one of the Kamaole beaches. We tried the banana macadamia pancakes, the loco moco, pork fried rice, and the papaya delight. All were delicious. The only miss was the strawberry pancakes, which were strawberry syrup on top of a stack of pancakes, rather than strawberries actually cooked into the batter.

The papaya delight was wonderful - it's half of a papaya with yogurt and granola. Delicious!

There can be a bit of a wait, but by the time you order, tables are always available. Tables are outside, and there are a lot of birds hoping for some of your breakfast. Bathroom is not available onsite, but you can cross the street to use the beach facilities.

Prices are EXTREMELY reasonable for the quality and for Kihei.
