Let me commend the staff who work at Kihei Caffe, the place is incredibly busy and they do an excellent job of expedite the line. The food is very tasty and portion sizes are huge, just don't expect gourmet ingredients / presentation. We ordered the pork fried rice w/ over easy eggs and pancakes w/ mac nuts and bananas -...

Delicious and well priced breaky in Maui. The pork fried rice was so good and reminded me of my mom's Chinese pork fried rice (yum). The huevos rancheros was also amazing and so was their French toast. I'm not a big French toast person but their take on it with sweet bread was delectable. Visit Kihei Caffe when you have... More

It's not fancy, but it sure is tasty. This place is always super busy, which says a lot right there about the quality of the food. Order first (cash only), then find seating outside, sip on a great cup of coffee while you wait for your food, then dig in and begin your feast, Biggest, fluffiest, lip smackin' pancakes ever....

We've been here before and gave it another try with some friends who were visiting, who insisted on the "famous" fare. We waited for about 20 minutes through a rapidly moving line-up, ordered our food then waited for a few minutes for one of the tables to open up for our large party (of 10). Papaya bowls, breakfast burritos, huge... More

We have stopped in here a few times and are never disappointed. You stand in line to order your food and they are a CASH only establishment. They offer a very wide assortment of food and at a very reasonable cost compared to most of the islands restaurants. Everything we have tried has been excellent and we would eat again,... More

Great coffee, friendly and knowledgeable owner. He roasts his own beans and will let you know when to come back to get beans to take home!

Like heaven, if heaven served incredible food and insanely delicious coffee. Between this and the beach how can anyone leave??? Omelette with chorizo, bacon, ham and sausage aka Atkins Omelette - incredible. Service amazing. Coffee amazing. Stop by and tip well, then go in the ocean and surf/swim/scuba/snorkel it all off. Mahalo!

Breakfast lived up to the reviews. The only reason i gave 4 stars was because I got a dirty coffee cup, not going to keep me from going back., lol. We had the French toast, the surfer sandwich and the sticky bun.... so delicious!

You stand in a (usually) long line up to order, with your entire party. Not supposed to grab a table until after everyone has ordered. The staff weren't overly friendly or helpful. They are essentially food runners only. Portion size is large and food is good.
