My wife and I had breakfast here on our recent trip to Maui. After going twice to the sister restaurant, the Gazebo, we decided to give the Lahaina location a try. Since there is always an hour wait at the Gazebo, it made seemed like a good idea to give this location a shot. By the way, no wait here the day we went. We both had the pancakes and a side of bacon. Wow, where do I even begin, the pancakes are the fluffiest, lightest, awesomess pancakes I've ever had. And I don't even consider myself a pancake enthusiast. So as long as you can find parking this location is great. No wait, same great pancakes. Possibly a bit smaller then the pancakes at Gazebo, but same taste. Not that I can finish the two pancakes they serve, they just fill you stomach no matter how big of an eater you think you are.
Great view of the water, you can literally have a table over the water, great view of Lanai and Molokai. Run, don't walk, to either Koa's or the Gazebo.
And yes, as to others that complain about having to walk through a jewelry store to get to the hostess, come on, really?? The food is that good, it really throws you off to go ten feet to get a better view of the ocean....ugh.
