The Lāhainā 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.

Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice
Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice is one of Hawaii’s most beloved shave ice spots, and for good reason. Ululani’s has six locations on Maui serving up locally inspired flavors using fresh ingredients, including coconut, mango, pineapple, banana, and more. Ululani’s also uses Maui-made Roselani’s ice cream in their shops. Do yourself a favor and get an ice cream scoop with your shave ice.
Leoda’s Kitchen & Pie Shop
Sure, Hawaii might not be known for pie, but Leoda’s Kitchen & Pie Shop is not to be missed. Get a slice, full pie, or small pie of flavors like macadamia nut chocolate praline pie, Olowalu lime, and banana cream. This spot also serves freshly baked bread, savory pies, sandwiches, pot pies, and more. Leoda’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Island Cream Co.
Island Cream Co. has received numerous accolades for its unique frozen treat that isn’t quite ice cream or gelato, but rather ‘Island Cream.’ Island Cream Co. makes their own waffle cones and infuses flavors like shortcake, popcorn, and chocolate cake right into each recipe. They have dozens of different flavors to pick from, as well as non-dairy options.
Hawaiian Sweets Company
Hawaiian Sweets creates decadent fudge, toffee, taffy, and more. These sweet treats are award-winning, made in small batches, and carefully crafted to feature fresh Hawaiian ingredients. Their fudge is especially popular and is known across all the islands by vistors and locals alike.
