On the way down from the Haleakala Sunrise we were looking for breakfast. So of course we consulted with our Maui Revealed Guidebook to find a good place to eat. After reading their review, we decided to check out Maui Coffee Roasters. It was one of those decisions that didn’t seem like much at the time, but ended up as one of the favorite places we found.

Maui Coffee Roasters is located at 444 Hana Hwy, near the intersection of the Hana Highway and Dairy Road. It is on the North side of Dairy Road, and the West side of the Hana Highway, for those who are good with directions. Here is what their building looks like:

We both had their smoked salmon benedict the first time we stopped and could not believe how good it was; especially since it was only seven bucks. We actually thought it tasted better than the almost twenty dollars per plate crab benedict we tried a few days later at the Seawatch Restaurant in Wailea. We also tried some of their sandwiches and muffins. Needless to say, we did liked everything we tried. But of course we always kept going back for the coffee.

I don’t drink coffee so I usually had a fruit smoothie. Of course, those were very good as well. By the time Shauna got the camera ready I was well into my smoothie already…

Even though we were staying in Kihei, Shauna kept wanting to go back to Kahului to get one of their coffees. Seemed a bit out of the way to me, but we kept finding excuses to travel that direction.

I also made sure to enter a review for them on Tripadvisor, as they did not have a review at that time. A few other people have since given them great reviews as well. So if you do check them out, be sure to enter a TripAdvisor review of your own to help spread the word.

On our next trip to Maui I am pretty sure that Maui Coffee Roasters will be one of the first stops we make. It would definitely hit the spot after the long flight. I can hardly wait…
