We stopped by Home Maid Cafe before leaving the island to try their malasadas. They were the best malasadas we had the whole trip. They were fried fresh to order and so fluffy I wish I had ordered more than three. Just wanted to acknowledge that this place was super busy but the people working were some of the hardest... More

Whenever I am in maui, this is the place to get my breakfast every day. Malasadas are so amazing that I have to ignore that I am on a diet. The service is good even though the place is very small.

Stopped here for fresh malasadas, and they were great! We had the plain and cream filled and both were so good. They make them fresh upon request, so they are warm when you eat them. So good!

I came here specifically for their cream-filled malasadas! They were fresh, warm, soft and so delicious. I wish I lived in Kihei just to come eat here. A must try!!!

Went there for breakfast and enjoyed the meal. It is a locals restaurant . We wanted to try the donut looking items but the were already sold out. We were so close to Maui Pie that we walked around the corner of the building for a turnover after breakfast instead. Must try these both.

This is a local short order place. Lots of folk in for breakfast. The point of the visit however was for malasadas, those wicked bits of fried dough. This the one place In Kihei. Get there early since they can run out.
