Casual and relaxed atmosphere. We ordered the cattle burgers with fries and salad. We really enjoyed the meal and especially liked their salad! Large portions to fill up your tummy and they don't empty your wallet; subsequently we only needed a very light supper/snack in the evening. It was somewhat busy and so there was some wait time but nothing... More

On a rainy afternoon we ran in to hide with our little one, and had a chill lunch by the window. The service was really nice, friendly and timely. They have high chairs so it was great to pop LO in and enjoy a meal hands free ;-) We had a burger and a salad with fish (catch of the... More

Our temptation tour guide took us here for breakfast on our luxury tour to Hana. Nice place to stop off for breakfast on our journey to Hana on a disgustingly wet day. Coffee was hot, not enough milk being passed out( must be a hot commodity to have lots of milk on a island). Pancakes were awesome and breakfast fared... More

Before shopping in Paia, we stopped in here for breakfast. The menu has some really good items in it. The waitstaff was very casual and unassuming. They are quite helpful if you ask questions. Been no Gluten Free, I had a lot of them. Food was great and service was pretty quick. I definitely recommend it.

We ate here a couple of times during our stay before discovering Cafe Des Amis (which I prefer). We ordered a plate our first visit that had a variety of foods to sample - all of which were tasty. We also had breakfast here - very satisfying, but not my favorite in Maui. Great place to grab a quick bite... More

Three words: Crispy Duck burger. Three more words: Sweet potato fries. Outstanding flavors and texture. Fast, attentive service. Typical funky Paian atmosphere. Pretty good value. Would return in a heartbeat.

We stopped here when going through Paia on a recommendation. Excellent prices -- happy hour has $5 cocktails which is unbelievable on this island. Menu was limited but good. Really nice bartenders. Great stop while in town.

Had lunch here and was impressd with the menu choices including the large array of desserts. The food was good and the two servers were fast and efficient.The food arrived quickly and was tasty and of sufficient size that dessert was not an option, even though they had such great choices. Maybe we'll have dessert next time.

We had a lunch stop here. My Mum had crispy duck and I had a burger. My burger was a little pink for my liking but they were happy to have it back and cook it some more for me no problem. They even took a bit off the bill which I hadn't expected.

An awesome spot for an of the wall lunch. I had the pig special and the boss had the shrimp special. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere that this cafe provided in this interesting surf town.
