Friendly service at 6am from Brittany. Large latte was smooth and delicious. Enjoyed contemplating the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Darby on their lanai.

We stopped by here to pick up a few needed item but they didn't have most of what we needed. "General Store" Is more of a deli and ice cream store in General. If you found this review helpful please let me know.

I live on Maui, and eat good food offered on Maui. Been going to the space which has been changing hands for years, where now it is the Ma'alaea General Store (with different owners from last time?). Went there when they first opened (with first owners?) and had a delicious ahi black and blue burger for a decent price (I... More

Walked there from our rented condo one morning. Great iced coffee and homemade donut. Hopefully you don't need any household supplies as they sell them but figure twice to three times the price as longs or Safeway. I paid $6.99 for a stick of men's deodorant. Welcome to Hawaii I guess...

We stopped here for breakfast before visiting the aquarium. Nice place right on the harbor, and the breakfast burritos we got were good and big. However i was surprised to find out that there was a charge for the sour cream and pico di gallo that was offered. Not that i wouldn't have gotten them anyway, it just would have... More

Awesome location across from harbor. Great selection of tacos, pulled pork, fish, or shrimp. A little something for everyone.

We stopped in, while walking the harbor in the early morning. The iced coffee was excellent!! I browsed the breakfast menu, which looked delicious. We had not planned on eating breakfast out, otherwise I would have definitely eaten there. The store itself is cute, with a restaurant, coffee bar, store, and merchandise. The staff was exceptionally friendly. I would definitely... More

Friendly service, great-tasting food with fresh ingredients. We had the toast with avocado, egg and Parmesan. One of us had the breakfast egg, bacon and cheese on toast which was incredible. Beware of when the clerk takes your order, points to the cooler and says, "go ahead and get your drink." We did, and we didn't realize we'd be charged... More
