This little hidden away Café should stay that way. The Breakfast was terrible. Perculated Coffee and bottled Juice backed up a very average pancake breakfast.

Best value on Maui! Our server was great and the hostess was so helpful with tips for things to do. My next trip will definitely include a stop at the Castaway Cafe!

The Castaway Cafe is a quaint Casa Blanca style restaurant with lovely ocean front views. It is on our agenda when ever we are on Maui. It is a great spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner and they have affordable evening dinner specials.

Excellent portions and prices. Nice ambiance, not pretentious, and great service. Would recommend for someone gluten free as well. They substituted items with no extra charges.

Great location. Awesome way to start your Maui day. Prices are lower than many beach-side restaurants and the meals have good sized portions. We had eggs & omelet. They were good, fresh fruit and service was especially awesome!

My husband and I ate breakfast at this restaurant staying at the Ashton Kaanapali Villas. We both had The Big Island Omelet. It came with toast and potatoes. It was very good. Service was friendly and excellent. Views of the ocean were beautiful!

Ate in a few different places this week and by far this was the best! I ate a teriyaki burger with pineapple. It was delish. My son had a pull pork sandwich. It is priced reasonably and definitely worth it. Great view of the beach....More

Arrived here for dinner with friends. Very friendly staff and great service. There was a Wednesday night date night special which was very realistic in price for a bottle of wine, salad and main meal. If you are hungry it was a great deal. We...More

No they do not. But check out Leilani's at Whaler's Village. They even give a free slice on a return visit. Go on Taco Tuesday, they are delicious
