Brekkie Bowls

Located in a non-descript light industrial park near two fitness centers, Brekkie Bowls food truck serves up  healthy Açaí or Pitaya (dragon fruit) bowls to locals and visitors 'in the know'.  Here's the inside dish, pick your base (Açaí or Pittaya), pick two fruit toppings, add some toppings like almond butter, chia seeds, hemp seeds or gogi berries and head to the beach to watch the day get started.  Don't forget your kombucha, coffee or fresh smoothie!!  Brekkie Bowls are all organic, no added sugar and ono delicious.

What is Açaí you ask?  Açaí berries come from the Acai palm.  They're small grape sized berries that pack a nutritional punch of antioxidants, beneficial fiber and heart-healthy fats. How about Pitaya? Pitaya, also known as dragon fruit is the fist sized fruit of the Cereus pitahaya plant that also boasts powerful nutritional benefits. Check our our post on visiting Maui's only Dragon Fruit Farm!

Next up on our breakfast tour of Kihei is Nalu's South Shore Grill.  Nalu's is known for their fantastic night entertainment and dinners but they serve up a mean breakfast too! They serve up Loco Moco all day so those who want to really fuel up are all set! Not sure what Loco Moco is all about, check out our Ultimate Food Guide To Hawaiian Local Foods and read all about it.

Nalu's also serves up Açaí and Pitaya bowls but you might want skip the bowls and give their signature pancakes served with a homemade rum syrup, Maui Gold pineapple, bananas, and mac nuts a try. Yum! Maybe add a side of Malasadas? eh?

It's very casual here, order at the counter and seating is open.

Something For Everyone

Kihei Caffe

Next up is by far one of Kihei's most popular breakfast spots and the line out the door is testimony to just how popular this beach cafe is.  Situated right on South Kihei Road, for years, Kihei Caffe has been dishing up delicious breakfasts to locals and visitors alike. If eating hearty breakfast while sitting outside and watching the world go by sounds good to you then this is the spot. Breakfast is served all day, no problem if you sleep in!

Remember those banana macadamia nut pancakes I mentioned earlier (you can get mac-nut French toast too)? Yep, you can get them here along with all of your traditional breakfast favorites and a few new local style dishes.

Tip - Get there early to avoid the line and to grab one of the outdoor seats. Also go early if Pecan Sticky Buns is your thing, they sell out early. Or grab your food to go and head to the beach across the street.

Hearty and Local

808 Grindz Cafe

This hidden gem is tucked back in the Safeway shopping mall. Famous for their Mac-Nilla sauce for their pancakes and waffles but they have just about everything under the breakfast sun as well. Casual atmosphere, order at the counter and all food is 'to-go' - you can take it to the beach, back to the condo or sit at their outside tables.  Since the weather in Maui is lovely most any time of the year, you can't go wrong no matter where you choose to sit and eat.

You'll find a lot of local-style influence in their menu (like Loco Moco, fried rice or Kalua pork hash).  How about trying the Kawabanga Breakfast with ubiquitous Spam on the side! Hows that for local-style!!

Where does 808 and Grindz come from?  808 is the local area code, and grindz is the local Pidgin term for food, good food.

Hours: 7:00 am - 2:00 pm (breakfast and lunch all day)

Fancy Schmancy

Ka’ana Kitchen at the Andaz Hotel

Our number 5 pick goes all out. If you really want to treat yourself to an elegant breakfast at one of Maui's premier fancy schmancy hotels then Ka'ana Kitchen is the place. The breakfast buffet will set you back roughly $50 per person (excluding gratuity) and for the buffet, it's best if you arrive earlier rather than later, they seem to slow down stocking the breakfast bar around 10am. Breakfast can also be ordered off the menu, of course, and items such as Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with coconut creme, macadamia nuts and pineapple compote or Poached Eggs and Sweet Potato cake intrigue the palate.

Free Valet Parking can be validated at the restaurant.

Meet The Author
We are Laurie (Lali) & Jeff, owners of Kihei Akahi unit DG13. Owning a home on Maui has been a dream from the first time Laurie set foot on the island more than 20 years ago. Year after year we have traveled here to enjoy all that Maui has to offer. It’s a magical place that calls us back time after time. Laurie’s affinity with the Hawaiian islands extends beyond just vacationing and goes back two generations. Tutu, Laurie’s grandmother came to Oahu with with her husband Robert in the 1940’s, invited by Elizabeth Arden to open her first salon at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki. Leilani, Laurie’s mom, was born in Honolulu in April of 1941. Later that year, on the morning of December 7th, while her father was golfing at Pearl Harbor Golf Course the bombing of Pearl Harbor started. Tutu and baby Leilani stayed in Honolulu while Bob returned to San Francisco and began work as a civil servant. Transportation from the islands to the Mainland was restricted and Tutu and Leilani were unable to return to their previous home on the mainland for months. Tutu had spunk and was tenacious! She wrote President Roosevelt repeatedly imploring him for help on their return passage. Eventually, she received a letter from President Roosevelt’s secretary and was granted passage back to San Francisco. It wasn’t until 2004 when Leilani was able to make Maui her second home. She also owns a condo in Kihei Akahi! In 2017 Laurie followed suit. There’s just something about Maui that is magical and keeps drawing this family back. What we do when we’re not on Maui family photo Our full-time home is a small farm in Calistoga in the Napa Valley, California. Jeff is a 7th generation Calistogan. His family was instrumental in the formation of our town. He is a realtor specializing in the wine industry and his business focus is on Pinot Noir vineyards, wineries and high end wine country estates. He spends much of his free time fishing and camping in our 1968 Airstream trailer. Laurie is an artist and dabbles in a variety of media. Fiber arts and textiles occupy most of her artistic endeavors and includes spinning wool or silk on one of her many spinning wheels, weaving, knitting or dyeing fibers. When not playing in the fiber arts world, she practices yoga, swims and is an avid gardener and beekeeper. Married 28 years, we have two adult children (Kara & Casey) and one very spoiled Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua mix named Frankie.
