We stood in a long line, but it moves fast and is worth the wait. The Mac Nut pancakes are delicious. Good coffee. CASH only.

I had Kihei Cafe on my list of breakfast places to try while in Maui after doing lots of research on the best places to eat here on the island. The restaurant is very popular, and was very busy when we arrived at 8:30 - about a 30 minute wait in line to place our order. I was disappointed to... More

A number of friends recommended this place for breakfast. Every morning there's a very long line. But the line moves quickly and we could always find a seat. It's cash only! They have a cash machine inside, although the day we were there a customer was having issues with it.The food was delicious. The perfect breakfast. Good coffee. You sit... More

It's a cute little place that is popular no question. Lining up to place your order gives it the vibe and seating outdoors is great. Friendly staff. My breakfast choice of papaya with yogurt and granola was just okay. The half papaya was small and it might have had 2 spoons of yogurt only so not great for $7+. Other... More

this place gets packed in the mornings and serves some local favorites. most dishes are huge servings and there are lots of choices, including smaller bites like baked goods and oatmeal. the coffee is really good, too.

When we first arrived in Kihei the Cafe was closed for remodel. I was so disappointed because we really wanted to try it! It opened just before we left Maui and there was a HUGE line. I'm so glad we decided to wait. I had the Banana Macnut pancakes with coconut syrup, and my husband had Banana Macnut French toast.... More

Mind you have to stand in line to order but the service and food are excellent. The macadamia nut pancakes are the bomb- actually didn't have a meal there that wasn't delicious. Very friendly - eat outside atmosphere- they bring your order to your table.

This was hopping on a Tuesday morning. The food was great and came out quickly. One note, bring cash no cards. I am definitely going back again!

Their omelets are HUGE made with 8 eggs and large enough to share or take home half for breakfast the next day. The eggs come with delightfully seasoned roasted potatoes. On my last morning on the island I had their Papaya with yogurt and granola. Great for a healthy and light breakfast. Will make this my go to breakfast spot... More

Quick yummy food. They have everything you need for breakfast. The seating is first come first serve but we only waited for about 5 minutes. Cash only place, but does have an ATM inside. Good portion sizes for decent prices.
