Description: Located in the hip surf town of Paia on the north shore of Maui, VANA celebrates the flavors of Hawaii and showcases locally grown ingredients and Japanese inspired dishes. Our menus feature farm fresh salads, local seafood, vegetarian items, sushi, steak and desserts. Our chefs carefully created our brunch and dinner menus while Danny, our mixologist developed prohibition-inspired cocktails. Wine aficionados will appreciate having our sommelier, Vanessa to assist with pairing recommendations. Tucked behind the historic Paia Inn, guests can enjoy three different dining experiences at VANA; our main dining area, the Raw Bar where our sushi chef can be seen in action and our Green Bar where the cocktail magic happens. Come, and enjoy a cool island breeze as you dine under swaying trees and white string lights. Sharing is encouraged and our dishes are always best enjoyed with family and friends.

From the juices to the avocado toast; this is the place for brunch and lunch in Paia. The kitchen is wide open and fun to watch and the service staff are delightful. I can't wait to return.

This was our first stop while doing the road to Hana trip. Cozy patio under a tree canopy, nice setting. Excellent service. Breakfast menu presents new twists on old favorites. All three of us were delighted with our choices. I had the eggs with lox and cream cheese, topped with avocado, unusual and very tasty.

I agree that this place is a bit fancier and perhaps more sophisticated for breakfast than other places in Paia, but I'm more interested in taste and reasonably fast service in the morning. So when we ate here, I had to temper my expectations for fast service. It was slow, but the restaurant is nicely setup outside with comfortable seating and a pleasant atmosphere. When the food arrived, I figured it would be really good considering the wait. It was just average. It's another option for you, if you like the menu. It was okay, but I would not come back.

I wouldn't have even known this great breakfast and lunch place was there if I hadn't gone into the Paia Inn to take a look around. There it was, just beyond the Inn lobby. A sophisticated vibe, high chairs at intimate tables, two of which they pushed together for our party of four. Terrific waitresses. The cooks poaching eggs right in front of us. Though a hot day, cool from the breeze that floated through. The best Eggs Benedict ever. Great natural juices.

Seriously one of the best breakfasts we've had so far and also in hawaii during our short trip. Glad we came by here. Firstly. the location is behind the paia inn and is super adorable (yes i said it) when you walk in to the place. Everything on their menu looked great although ended up the breakfast board and the lox and eggs, both of which were very fresh and amazing. Good portion sizes. Service was pretty good. Def recommend trying this place out.
