Looking for a hip new spot to stop for breakfast, lunch, shave ice, doughnuts, coffee, groceries, trucker hats, plate lunches or all of the above on your way to or from Lahaina? Look no further! Meet – Ma’alaea General Store. Or should I say re-meet Ma’alaea General Store since they were established back in 1910? Ma’alaea Harbor is home to whale watching tours, the old Buzz’s Wharf, some shops, a great beach some occasional surf and the Maui Ocean Center.
The menu includes a whole host of offerings from breakfast burritos to fresh salads to plate lunches to specialty baked treats (and doughnuts!). There are tables and chairs on the lanai out front, there are swings and umbrellas and benches of reclaimed wood. The coolest he’e (octopus) themed dining area features a black and white wall mural, colorful custom pillows and an open bar looking out to the harbor.
P.S. The Samoas doughnuts (yes, as in Girl Scout cookie!) are on point!
