kind of a typical Maui style general store. Coffee was OK, but not fantastic. Tried a maple bacon donut with it. The donut itself seemed fresh and soft, the bacon...not sure what the hype on cooking shows is about. It's very convenient if you've been out on the water.

We really like this place. Great food and service. We had a great view of the harbor for a very relaxing lunch.

This store is wildly convenient if you are staying in Ma'alaea. We went there at least a half dozen times. Fresh coffee, espresso drinks, delish donuts. They also have a good selection of snacks, drinks, and over the counter medicines (especially seasickness meds, being next to the harbor). We never tried the made-to-order foods, but the menu is interesting and... More

Nice little harbor-side restaurant. Best breakfast sandwich at a great price. Great place to grab a bite after a whale watch.

If in Ma'alaea Harbor and feeling like a sandwich but don't want the full restaurant time and experience, this is the place! They have a small "general store" with what you need, but they also have a kitchen that makes some really great sandwiches! Fish, Chicken or an Italian, just good.

Ma'alaea General Store has a nice selection of food and house hold items. They also have a deli counter where you can get coffee and other hot foods. The breakfast wrap was tasty.

We ran in here to grab a quick breakfast before our snorkel trip. Not knowing what to expect we went in based on the great reviews we found on here. My husband and I had a 'unburrito' burrito for breakfast and loved it. Definitely will come again!

Great selection and girls working were very nice and really doing a good job. My daughter loved the "swing" seats. We had salads, grilled cheese for daughter and BLT with avocado for me. Great stuff for much cheaper prices than the full service places by maui ocean center

Ma'alaea General store exceeded my expectations! My husband and I loved coming here to get our breakfast, every menu item is made fresh with high quality ingredients. Simple recipes yet outstanding taste. A couple of the cashiers were slow, however, they were brand new so they need time to learn and they were very pleasant. There are also fresh and... More

Stopped by for a cup of coffee and spied luscious-looking donuts in the bakery case. Tried one and found it filled with delicious passion fruit cream filling. Today can't get any better than that!
