Dropped in after a 5 hour sea trip to see the turtles. The iced vanilla latte was perfect and the service was friendly. What more can you ask for.

We were staying in the nearby condos and went thinking we could just stock up on easy convenience store items but that is not what this place offers. They had a decent selection of fancy lemonade but would be better positioned as a coffee/smoothie shop and gift store. Saw people eating there too but we didn't try the food.

I had the duck and it was really good wasn't oily at all best I've had on this island. The lamb with black beans and wasabi mashed potatoes were also really good.

This is a cute little General Store type atmosphere with excellent breakfast treats and sandwiches. I highly recommend either getting it to go if you are coming out of Lahaina on your way to another part of the island for a picnic, or it is relaxing to either sit on the front porch, or in the seat swings, and watch...

Friendly service at 6am from Brittany. Large latte was smooth and delicious. Enjoyed contemplating the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Darby on their lanai.

We stopped by here to pick up a few needed item but they didn't have most of what we needed. "General Store" Is more of a deli and ice cream store in General. If you found this review helpful please let me know.

I live on Maui, and eat good food offered on Maui. Been going to the space which has been changing hands for years, where now it is the Ma'alaea General Store (with different owners from last time?). Went there when they first opened (with first owners?) and had a delicious ahi black and blue burger for a decent price (I... More

Walked there from our rented condo one morning. Great iced coffee and homemade donut. Hopefully you don't need any household supplies as they sell them but figure twice to three times the price as longs or Safeway. I paid $6.99 for a stick of men's deodorant. Welcome to Hawaii I guess...

We stopped here for breakfast before visiting the aquarium. Nice place right on the harbor, and the breakfast burritos we got were good and big. However i was surprised to find out that there was a charge for the sour cream and pico di gallo that was offered. Not that i wouldn't have gotten them anyway, it just would have... More
