Colleen’s At The Cannery


Suppose you wake up one day in Haiku and wonder where you should go for coffee. No worries, brah! You have to get over to Colleen’s at the Haiku Marketplace. You will be glad that you found this Haiku gem, and will soon realize that you are drinking the best cup of Joe to be had on the north shore. With a fresh and caffeinated morning perspective, your people-watching skills will be turned up to the max. Before you know it, you’ll be ready for a day of lounging and exploring Maui’s North Shore.

Some top choices on the breakfast menu at Colleen’s are the traditional Cannery Breakfast, French Toast, and the Haiku BLT. They also have a wide variety of Eggs Benedicts, an Organic Tofu Vegetable Wrap, and much more. One of our all-time favorites is the Hangover Cure. It’s a mélange of black forest ham, oven-roasted potatoes, jack and cheddar cheeses, onions, and green chiles all sautéed together.

We love that Colleen’s uses local ingredients whenever they can. Their breakfast smoothies are delicious, and the Cannery Bloody Mary is the bomb! Don’t forget to say “Mahalo!” to your server on the way out!

Colleen’s also offers Lunch, Happy Hour, and Dinner Service. Next door is Colleen’s Bar, which is a great place to enjoy a pau hana with friends or meet up for a late-night cocktail.

Kula Bistro


Kula Bistro is in Kula, across the street from Morihara’s Store. For Maui residents, it’s in the exact location as Cafe 808 used to be. There are some good vibes to be had here!

On top of offering one of the most bangin’ breakfasts on Maui, the Kula Bistro also has a delicious lunch and dinner menu. Please note that Kula Bistro is BYOB. Guests are invited to bring their own beer and wine into the restaurant. Just wait to open it until you are inside the restaurant though, as no open bottles or cans are allowed in. Luckily for visitors, Morihara’s is right across the street, so you can buy a bottle or a six-pack and walk over to the Bistro.

Aside from their incredible menu and large portions, one of the best things about Kula Bistro is the atmosphere. Super chill vibes, friendly and attentive service, and lots of alohas are served here!

The choices for breakfast here at Kula Bistro are aplenty! The menu is split up into Benedicts, Frittatas, Local Favorites, French Toast & Pancakes, and many tasty side dishes. We love the Mahi Mahi Benedict, the Snow Crab & Spinach Frittata, and we just adore the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pancakes.

Another great part of dining at Kula Bistro is that it means supporting local Maui farms and vendors. This is a prime Maui restaurant that serves up healthy portions and celebrates the Maui community. You just can’t go wrong here!

Please check their website for the most up-to-date hours. (Currently, they are closed for breakfast on Mondays.)
