Surprised at the meal and very pleased. We did have to wait quite awhile for service but it was well worth the wait. The food was very fresh and very good! Well worth the visit.

We liked everything that we got there, served fresh and quickly. The atmosphere of the place is good, partly because it's not on the main street but behind some shops, which makes it a place where locals know where to go. It is well worth asking where it is (near the main intersection in Makawao) and enjoying good portions of... More

I had the fresh catch of the day sandwich. It was super yum. On fresh foccacia bread. I didn't think i liked foccaccia. I was very, very wrong. Baked fresh daily. The fish, ono, was grilled - very good. Salad came with - very good. Solid choice for lunch or dinner. Don't mind the chickens - they take care of... More

When I arrived, one of the staff was busy moving chairs into this area because there was rain in the forecast. So I headed there, Kathy, the waitress, cheerfully said I could sit anywhere and promptly brought me a menu. I picked the Quinoa Salad, and it was awesome, with lots of greens, red peppers and eggplant. Kathy very kindly... More

While checking out some of the shops in Makawao we happened upon the Makawao Garden Cafe. It's just off the main street behind a small shop. We were not sure how to go about ordering so we walked up to the small house where the cooking was going on. The nice lady told us to have a seat across the... More

The sandwiches & salads are consistently good. Especially the fish. And the price is just right. It's a cute little spot tucked away but worth seeking out.

Good healthy food at reasonable prices. The owner is a lovely lady which is an added plus. Having the local wild life, hens and cats that is, provides an added interest if children are present. We are in Maui every year, and hve been for the last 20 years or sop, and always stop by for light meal.
