The wildfires in August 2023 devastated the town of Lahaina and forced the closure of many small businesses in West Maui. As businesses begin to reopen, please support our West Maui restaurants and activity vendors.

West Maui Breakfast Spots: Additional Info
Dine poolside and oceanfront at The Gazebo in Lāhainā! The Gazebo serves up classic breakfast fare at reasonable rates from 7:30am – 2pm daily. While just about anything you can order will be delicious, we especially love their omelettes.
Overlooking the 18th hole of the Kaanapali Golf Course, Roy’s Kaanapali offers a luxurious breakfast experience from 6am – 10:30am daily. While their menu changes, you can expect artfully crafted favorites like Crab Cake Benedict, Avocado Toast, French Toast and traditional Puka Breakfast platters.
Enjoy open-air seating and views of the Napili Bay as you feast on sea-to-table cuisine, prepared by Chef Alexander Stanislaw’s team. The Sea House Restaurant serves breakfast from 7am – 2pm daily, with beverage services starting at 8am. We love the Molokai Sweet Potato Frittata and the Home-Made Macadamia Nut Cinnamon Roll is to die for.
This award-winning restaurant serves brunch just one day a week – and you won’t want to miss it. Dine in an open-air setting with the most stunning views (you might catch yourself thinking you’re in the water). Merriman’s Kapalua serves brunch on Sundays from 9:30am – 1pm, with live music from 10am – 1pm. They offer house-pressed vegetable juice, doughnuts cooked to order and french press coffee. If that doesn’t have you rounding up the family to get ready for brunch, then think about their Keahole Lobster Benedict, Prime Corned Beef Hash & Eggs, or their Organic Big Island Cinnamon French Toast.
