Our 1st morning here and we were looking for a reasonable breakfast place. We saw this place with lots of locals sitting outside. This must be good and it was. Great home made family style breakfasts.. A little bit slow but the wait was worthwhile with each order freshly prepared.

Came her for breakfast and enjoyed the Corned Beef Hash and French Toast. The breakfast menu is limited, but it does offer eggs, pancakes, French Toast, and their signature Malasadas. You will probably find something you like on the menu. This is a very small eating spot mostly known for their Malasadas and their lunch menu. This is a place... More

We ended up here because the highly rated restaurant was just too crowded with long wait times. Home maid has reasonably priced solid fare. Enough to eat but not overly large portions. Good tasting but nothing exceptional.located in a strip mall so parking was not a problem.

we came for the made-to-order malasadas (which were tasty) but my boys really loved their cheeseburgers and breakfast sandwiches! total hole-in-the-wall type joint but it lends itself to being sort of a quaint + hidden gem for takeout - perhaps i'd be more critical if we decided to eat there vs takeout. food was fresh and tasty and a good...

This was out "go to" place for breakfast. We tried the Kihei Caffe but was not impressed and it was always very busy. This café is in a strip mall - behind Taco Bell. It's small and has a small breakfast menu but the food is very good - cooked as requested. Service was great - everyone was friendly and... More

Although they were not the best Malasadas of our trip, they scored right up there. Did not try anything else, but they had a fairly extensive menu and decent prices.

We stopped here for breakfast because the reviews seemed good. We had the Egg breakfasts with bacon and it just didn't settle well for either me or my girlfriend. Maybe it was just us, but we weren't impressed. The staff was friendly enough and the place was clean.

If you don't know what malasadas are then you need to go here. I was pleasantly surprised by these delicious pastry donuts. They even make them fresh for you - sugar covered or cream filled. They both rock so get one of each. Do yourself this favor! This place is a little dive shop in a shopping center and I... More
