This was definitely one of the pleasant surprises for us during our visit to Maui. Great fish tacos and summer shrimp rolls, and very tasty coffee. Even if you don't visit the gardens, stop by the cafe for some snack or lunch!

We toured the Arboretum - a must see while visiting Maui - and discovered this Cafe just before leaving the garden.

It was time for lunch and this cafe is on the grounds. We had a shrimp summer roll and a veggie summer roll. They also offered root beer containing came sugar. The... More

Don't be fooled by the Haiku address: the arboretum is miles away, on the road to Hana, with many one-way bridges and twists and turns. The road is in perfect condition so it's not a problem if one pays attention. This said, the Cafe is a small shack at the entrance of the arboretum. The fish tacos are very good,... More

Absolutely delicious lunch! Pizza made from scratch, shrimp tacos- an absolute delight! Homemade Vanilla ice cream sandwich so big it will feed a family of 4.

The other day on our visit to Maui we decided to drive the road to Hana. Shortly into the ride I became car sick and thought if I had something to eat I would feel better. The only place we saw was the Gourmet Cafe. At this point I didn't care what I ate and had no expectations. What a... More

You won't see this from the road. You must take the entrance to the "Garden of Eden" privately owned botanical garden about a third of the way to Hana but it is near the entrance to the garden.
