Chris O's City Tips

  • Be kind with your tips. Folks work hard to make your stay in paradise as perfect as possible, and the cost of living here is rather high.
  • A little "aloha spirit" goes a long way anywhere — especially in Hawaii.
  • Lahaina is a smart destination to consider as your Maui base with easy access to a range of accommodations and attractions — whatever your budget or travel style.

    Planning a big day of adventure? Start things off with a hearty breakfast, a generous helping of aloha, and an excellent cup of joe, at 808 Grindz Café. Whether you’re going for the pancakes, waffles or French toast, be sure to have ‘em with the homemade sweet cream sauce.

    From 'epic' hot dog to wholesome vegan meals, there’s more to this new eatery than just its amazingly refreshing and massive shave ices. With a goal to transform the humble shave ice shop into a hip, big-city style eatery, Breakwall is a funky spot for a fun and affordable breakfast, lunch or snack.
