Best Breakfast Restaurants on Maui

1
The Gazebo

The Gazebo

What do you get when you combine macadamia nut pancakes with a sweeping view of Moloka‘i? A 20-person line before the restaurant even opens. The Gazebo breakfast is certifiably legendary—and so are the three egg omelets—so try to arrive by 7 a.m. in order to get a good seat. When you’re done, walk off breakfast on the Kapalua Coastal Trail.

Kihei Caffe

Is it still dark but you’re jet-lagged and starving? Luckily, this casual breakfast joint starts cooking at 5 a.m. The local favorites like eggs and fried rice are as affordable as they are filling—and breakfast is served until the 2 p.m. closing if you happen to sleep in.

For those who like breakfast with salt in their hair, this North Shore saloon is the place to re-fuel after a dawn patrol on the water. The heaping omelets and loco moco are the most filling breakfast in Pa‘ia, and it isn’t uncommon to see visiting celebs enjoying a casual breakfast.

La Provence

La Provence

Like a sliver of French countryside transplanted in Kula, this rural bakery has all the charm of a patisserie in Provence. Enjoy a warm, flaky, freshly baked croissant while surrounded by Kula’s pastures; your cup of coffee swill stave off the chill found here at 3,000 feet. Be sure to arrive early during weekend brunch for the best selection of pastries.

The Plantation House

The Plantation House

Not only does your table look out towards Moloka‘i and the famous Plantation golf course, (which hosts the annual PGA Hyundai Tournament of Champions), but diners can choose from six styles of eggs Benedict at surprisingly affordable resort prices. Seared ahi Benedict with wasabi hollandaise, anyone? Or classic buttermilk pancakes?
