Breakfast on the Sunset Side

Last issue, we shared some of our favorite East Maui breakfast spots. If it dawned on you that West Maui must have great breakfast locations, too, you’ll be pleased to know we agree. Here’s a second helping of venues that will keep your sunny side up.

The Sea House Restaurant

Haleakalā never looks more yummy than sitting on my plate at Sea House Restaurant. Named after Maui’s highest mountain, the oven-baked custard pancake is topped with cinnamon brown sugar, bananas (often harvested on the grounds of Nāpili Kai Resort) and chunks of sweet Maui Gold pineapple. It takes the kitchen about twenty minutes to bake this fluffy delight, but as my mother always said, “Good things are worth waiting for.” If I’m feeling saucy, I’ll go for Chef Alex Stanislaw’s Hawaiian-style huevos rancheros: two eggs cooked any way you like, atop kalua pork or veggies, with crispy fried tortillas. Four toppings—salsa verde, salsa roja, sour cream, and a sublime warm black bean and corn chili—add the final zing. With views of Nāpili Bay from every table, and servers with true aloha, you can’t go wrong at Sea House. Nāpili Kai Beach Resort, 5900 Lower Honoapi‘ilani Highway, Nāpili, 669-1500
