Great find...thanks YELP. Don't miss it. It is just around the corner, toward the harbor from the Maui Ocean Center. Very fun and great food.

Certainly didn't feel like good value but we were starving and in no mood to haggle. Having said that, the breakfast was good, healthy and nutritious. We got to eat the breakfast... More
