If you’re planning a trip to Maui, we have a few fantastic cafes for you to try. Maui is famous for its laid-back culture and attention to growing local. True to this spirit, cafes thrive on the island. Luckily Maui is small and as you explore, it will be easy to get a taste of the variety offered. Coffee is also a fantastic gift for friends and family.


Starting on the South Side of the island closest to Rentals Maui properties is Akamai. Akamai started out in Kahului as a “to-go” coffee truck in the Home Depot parking lot at 100 Pakaula Street.
