Big Wave Cafe
Big Wave Cafe CLOSED in the last half of 2012. It was at 1215 South Kihei Road in the Kihei Center, the same shopping center that contains Longs Drugs. Phone 808-891-8688.
Big Wave breakfast and lunch menus were both available from 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM. There were some lunch items from 2 to 5 PM, and the full dinner menu from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. They had a great bargain in their early-bird specials, buy one entree and get one half-off from 5:00 to 6:30 PM (call before you go to verify they are still doing this).
Atmosphere was very casual and there was no view. But the food was excellent. It’s as good as at Maui’s fine dining restaurants, for a lot less money. See below for some specific Big Wave Cafe menu items as well as photos.
This place was a surprising Maui gem. On the other side of Maui, see its sister restaurant, Kahana Sands, owned by the same chef.
Or for more restaurants on this side of Maui see Kihei Wailea Maui restaurants.
