Best Breakfast Maui – Lahaina, Kaanapali & West Side

Fueling yourself well is a top priority if you want to feel energized while enjoying all Maui has to offer – or simply prefer watching the beauty of the day unfolding in paradise as you eat your pancakes. For an eye-opening meal sure to revive and restore, we present the Best Breakfast Maui list for Lahaina, Kaanapali and the West Side.

Honolua Store – Kapalua Maui

This quaint, old-world plantation store is a favorite of people from all walks of life including the tony visitors at the neighboring Ritz Carlton and residents of posh Pineapple Hill. Tradesmen and locals love it too, for the hearty helpings of tasty grinds offered at reasonable prices. Sit a spell on the porch while enjoying your waffles, eggs, musubi or omelets and listen to the birdies sing to the golfers as they tee off across the street. More info.

Pineapple Grill

On weekends the award-winning restaurant, chef and management team serve the best Huevos Rancheros on island from 9-2 p.m. along with a number of other stand-out brunch fare including Lobster Florentine Benedict and their famous short ribs done up on weekends as hash and eggs. For sweet treats there are fluffy waffles and lavender scones drenched with lilikoi butter. More info.


Open only for breakfast and lunch (7:30 am – 2 pm) Gazebo is well-known for breakfast in spite of its out-of-the-way location on the ocean behind Napili Kai resort. Expect to stand in line but also expect to be rewarded for your patience with tremendous pancakes, waffles, egg dishes, and superior fried rice while enjoying your ringside seat of Napili Bay with whales frolicking in the distance.

Plantation House

See our reporter’s recent take on this first rate breakfast and brunch destination located high above Kapalua at the Plantation Golf Course in Kapalua. Views, relaxed ambiance and the island’s best Benedict make it a perennial favorite

Longhi’s Lahaina

The open air dining room right on front street welcomes the morning breezes in one of Lahaina’s favorite gathering spot to enjoy a special breakfast on the town. Homemade baked goods are the main reason why. For more info, visit our restaurant directory.

Moose McGillicuddy’s

Here you go – it’s kitchy and not all that “Maui” but the Front Street location is great and the breakfast menu so extensive that you can’t not like that as well as the great prices. We aren’t so convinced everything is made from scratch with free-range nest eggs and organic spinach but they don’t claim that either. We like Moose’s for just being what it is and they like you for the same reason.

Kahana Sands

Outstanding breakfast served from the ala carte brunch menu created by Chef Raul Ramirez, the resort dining room adjacent the swimming pool makes you feel relaxed right off the bat. A variety of healthy choices appear on the menu such as fruit/yogurt granola parfait done with unexpected flair and piled high smoked salmon platter, bowls of fresh berries and oatmeal with brown sugar and fruit alongside build your own omelets, carnitas and eggs, biscuits and gravy and the local standby – loco moco. Restaurant info.

Duke’s at Honua Kai

You really can’t beat the views of the newest addition to the TS Restaurant group at the Honua Kai resort in north Kaanapali Beach. It’s a great option when you want to stroll the boardwalk before or afterward. Read the grand opening review.

Java Jazz

I’ve heard claims they fix the best pancakes on Maui to go with their super rich espressos, cappuccinos and chia drinks. An expressive, artsy place, it’s fun to lounge on the Balinese style benches listening to Jazz whilst awaiting the morning loco moco. Java Jazz info.

Cane and Taro

Newest hotspot at Whaler’s Village fills a burning need for breakfast lovers in Kaanapali from sun-up to sundown. Breakfast menu includes Plantation Saimin and local favorites such as Loco Moco alongside new inventive dishes like Whaler Joe’s, scrambled eggs with sausage, ground beef, fresh spinach and cheese.  Stellar view of Kaanapali beach from the open air dining room can’t be beat. Read the grand opening review.

Lahaina Coolers

Perennial favorite off the tourist track dining in convenient Lahaina location. Take a seat on the charming lanai of a plantation style building to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and pupus in casual atmosphere. Monthly wine dinners the first Friday of the month are a sell out steal at $40/pp.

Mala Lahaina Weekends

Mala has carved a niche as the best place to meet for weekend brunch at its harborside location in Lahaina. Watch sea turtles from your table while noshing on smoked salmon flatbread, or the famous Mala Bene made uniquie with health bread and lamb sausage , specialty omelets or chaquitas. Be sure to wash it down with one of Mala’s a signature drinks, Sangria or Mojitos.

CJs Deli

Big rambling menu posted on black boards offer everything from oatmeal to moco loco at breakfast. French toasts and baked goods are particularly good. Reminds me of a the kind of place you’d find on a college campus with hearty portions, good prices, free WiFi, booths, tables inside and out, a coffee bar and lively atmosphere.

Sea House Napili

Truly a hidden gem at the approach to Kapalua, the Sea House commands magnificent views of Napili Bay and distant lanai. Belly up to the inside-outside bar or cozy up to a table and daydream through breakfast while watching the sunseekers set up in the sand right just beyond the dining room. Old-fashioned dining room décor distracts little from the sumptuous food and menu.
Sea House on Urbanspoon

Kaanapali Beach Hotel Brunch

Hailed as the best, biggest, greatest Sunday brunch on the West Side, Kaanapali Beach Hotel does a fantastic job of keeping the Wows coming in week after week. Seafood stations feature haute selections with crab legs, shrimp, fresh fish; carving station; salads; soups; pastries and dessert – the whole shebang is lip-smacking, belly-filling luscious.
