Stopped in at Cafe Mambo about 0730 to fuel up for the journey to Hana. Nice casual local feel. Real people with honest smiles work here. Food was delicious and hearty. Filled the hole in my stomach for hours. I had a breakfast burrito with the works. Can't remember the name, but every dish I saw looked ono. Wife had... More

My first trip in was for Breakfast. The food was just perfect...it just had a little extra something...maybe it was the atmosphere! Anyway, had to go back and try some lunch...the Mai Tais and Pork Sandwich were superb!

Nice inviting cafe. All the meals that came out looked delicious. My partner ordered breakfast burritos which was the pick. The burritos were filled with egg, cheese, rice, chorizo mince. Yummo! I would return just for their delectable burritos.The pancakes were mediocre as they were dead thin, over cooked and lacked flavour.

Either in a sandwich or on a salad, the crispy duck at Cafe Mambo is a must-try in Maui. Friendly staff and a casual atmosphere

We stopped for breakfast while trying to find the surfboard fence. They have a great menu selection. I had the ham and cheese croissant which was fresh and hot. My son wanted the loco moco which they serve all day. The service was excellent and quick. We enjoyed the beautiful artwork and pictures that adorn this great eclectic eatery. A... More

I love the mediteranian food here, it's also a pretty good place for kids, the service is not the fastest but the atmosphere is really upbeat and fun.

My husband and I had a long layover between flights so we rented a car and headed out to explore. We wandered past this place, took one look at the menu and were hooked. The food was excellent, service fast and friendly, and the brownie sundae is HIGHLY recommended. We loved the atmosphere and that they were in no hurry... More
