Well-known for staging Maui’s best Oktoberfest, this little Tyrolean style café oozes Alpen style Herzlichkeit all year ‘round, dishing up European style cuisine drenched in Maui sunshine. It’s one of Central Maui’s best options for lunch or dinner, offering both local and Swiss/German cuisine in a lovely, relaxed setting.

Never mind that it’s nestled between a granite yard and ceiling fan outlet; once inside, Brigit and Bernard’s Garden Cafe offers an ideal urban oasis inside its garden walls. Under the shade of a giant African tulip tree guests can listen to the hum of bees whilst enjoying a frosty mug of Bavarian or domestic beer before diving into a choice of fresh local fish or one of B&B ‘s regional specialties.

Last week we stopped by within an hour of touching down at OGG, suffering traveler’s pangs for something green and wholesome after a day spent eating peanuts and soft drinks. The goal was simple – a few vitamins would do – but we were uber-joyed after biting into one of the biggest, freshest, best-est salads we’ve possibly ever had outside our own kitchen.  Bernard makes his own vinaigrette dressing, which is the secret to this salad’s success along with the crisp, snappy condition of each and every one of the many vitamin rich ingredients. It was exactly what the doctor would have ordered.

Next up was the schnitzel sandwich, an immense, lightly breaded cutlet that couldn’t be contained by the freshly baked bun on which it was served. Light, delicate, and full of flavor, the sandwich is totally authentic, served with a choice of coleslaw or potato salad (German style, of course). On this day the platter came with an extra serving of the same delicious green salad that kicked off our lunch, since they were, mournfully, out of potato salad having had a big run on it earlier at lunchtime.

My companion enjoyed the fresh seared ahi as his entree, served with a delectably sweet/tangy sauce atop a bit of rice. “Delicious,” he mouthed as he went for the last bite within minutes of being served.
“Hey! I need to report on that dish! Save me some!” After an internal struggle, he reluctantly offered me the final morsel. He was right; it was very good indeed.

Other choices on B & B’s menu include classics such as Chicken Marsala, Pasta Carbonara, Pepper Steak, and Gambas ala Plancha (shrimp served Spanish style). They are well-known for their awesome teriyaki salmon or chicken burger as well as superior fresh fish preparations. But for me, the draw here is the Tyrolean specialties, including raclette, which is otherwise absent from Maui’s traditionally tropical menus. If you haven’t allowed yourself the pleasure of a really good schnitzel lately, you owe it to yourself to stop by soon. If it’s ahi you’re after, don’t count on your dining companion to share.
