Doing the bike trip down Haleakala and need to re fuel our bodies. I ordered the Bree stuffed french toast and my boyfriend ordered the macadamia nut pancakes. Both were so good I almost did not want to share mine. The staff was inviting and friendly. The bus driver recommended both of the restaurants in this town and told us... More

Breakfast at Kula Sandalwoods is as warm and nourishing as its owners, who live on-site and put their heart into each meal. We stopped here after getting up before dawn to see the Haleakala crater sunrise, and were not disappointed. I highly recommend the eggs benedict! Thanks to Jamie and Eleanor for serving us in March, and making our first... More

We were in the area and needed breakfast. We ended up here after the place down the street had a 40 minute wait. I enjoyed my coffee and breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese, ham and herb aoli on a sesame bun. It was one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. The service was friendly.

This is always a stop during our vacation to Maui!!! We always stop for breakfast on our way to the summit of the Haleakala. It's not very expensive and it's owned by a husband and wife. The portugese sausage is awesome...make sure to stop in before your hike to the top!

My hubby & father did the bike ride from the summit of Haleakala down to Pa'ia. We decided to stop here for a break & some hot food. The food is good, but the real shinning star is the 100% Kona coffee. Ah, you just don't get stuff like that on the coast. That cup came out with a full... More

The best thing about this restaurant are the panoramic vistas and its location for visitors to Haleakala crater. The food is very basic and not expensive. Ample parking is available and rental cabins are also located on the property.

Stopped for lunch and had a pork sandwich, a hamburger, a grilled cheese, and a coffee. The sandwiches were okay, bland and small but not gross. They were served with potato chips and a pile of dry cabbage with a "French dressing" that tasted like tomato juice and oil without vinegar or seasonings. There were no high chairs for kids....

This looked like just a little place on the side of the road, on the way up to the Haleakala Crater. It was excellent! The staff was super friendly, the breakfast tasted homemade, and the portions were perfect. We had the Eggs Benedict, and the Ham and Cheddar Omelette. Both were fantastic. I highly recommend this place!
