Stopped in for breakfast on our way to Hana. The food was awesome. You have to have the pancakes. Well at least one pancake, the portions are huge. Pancakes are a specialty there. Lots of pictures of Willie Nelson, I think he goes there once...More

Good food for breakfast in a local bar on the way to Hana. Food is the usual breakfast fare. Eggs are great. Acai bowl is not as good as other choices. Staff is friendly and amenable to questions. Definite go!

Charley's is the place we go for lunch when we are in Paia. My favorite is the fish & chips with a Mai tai. They offer consistently great food!

First of all, this place gets busy so go in expecting to wait and you will be pleasantly surprised if you don't have to. Or better yet order drinks and chill while your waiting for your food. Second, the food is good, but could be...More

No matter where you are staying on Maui, Charlie's is worth the drive for breakfast. It's also a great place to stop before heading out on the highway to Hana. They have the best Moco Loco I've ever had.More
