This restaurant is closed. There is a patz pies next door which serves breakfast. There is also a cafe about a mile up the street but it is pretty busy.

After all the delightful meals I have shared with friends at Mahina's, I am so sorry to say, they have closed their doors. They will be missed. Home cooked, healthy, locally grown produce and grass raised meat. Aloha!
