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.

Best chicken salad with salsa and basil dressing! Burgers and fries were great too. Good price point and excellent selection. For a fresh and amazing drink, try the piña colada! Not the fake sugar flavor of normal. Great staff, too. Downfall- parking and seating. Can't wait to go next time we are in town!

Stopped at Cafe Mambo for breakfast on the way to Hana. It was busy and noisy, but the omelet and French toast were excellent! However, don't even think of leaving without having a glass of pineapple juice which was the best!
