Nothing quite captures the essence of a relaxing vacation like a slow morning. We’ve hand picked a few of our favorite spots to satisfy your brunch cravings no matter what time you wake up!
Nalu’s South Shore Grill might be better known for their live music and lively dinner atmosphere, but the open-air dining area and variety of breakfast and lunch options are just as amazing in the morning and afternoon. Whether your craving a Loco Moco, a classic bacon and eggs breakfast or chicken and waffles, Nalu’s never seems to disappoint. Nalus features quite a few Hawaiian recipes, but has something for even the pickiest eater in your group (you can’t go wrong with the “Straight-Up Burger” and house made chips). It’s definitely a restaurant worth visiting more than once if you have the time
Wailea: Akamai Coffee
Akamai has a few locations on Maui which all serve phenomenal specialty coffee featuring locally grown beans. The Wailea location is found right next to Wailea Blue Golf Course, just up the hill from the Shops at Wailea. Akamai Wailea also has a full service kitchen with breakfast sandwiches, avocado toast and pastries as quick options, and serves delicious full meals like classic Huevos Rancheros to unique options like the Soba Noodle Salad.
This restaurant is fairly new to maui, but nestled in the heart of historic Lahaina town. It has all the brunch staples but creative local style takes on breakfast, like their breakfast ramen, really set this location apart. It’s location just across from the Banyan tree is a great area to explore after you’ve got your name on the list.
Wailuku: 62 MarcKet
This restaurant’s name comes from its rotating menu that switches every season (or 62 days) in an effort to keep options fresh year round and to support local farmers by featuring seasonal produce (think berries for stuffed French Toast, papayas, and Lilikoi for a unique twist on Eggs Benedict. 62 MarcKet, just off Wailuku’s Main Street is a great location for hikers to relax after adventuring in nearby Iao Valley or one of the ridges of the West Maui Mountains. For anyone spending time in Wailuku, this spot is worth the stop (or several!)
