Walking the winding trails of this ancient subterranean river of lava is safe and easy and an enjoyable activity for the entire family. Climb to the peak of the Haleakala volcano and take in the spectacular view of the crater from the rim, or be adventurous and climb down into the crater on foot or on horseback.

Hawaiian Village Coffee

Reviewed By EconomistGuy - West Vancouver, Canada

We usually hit the Coffee Store in the Napili Shopping Centre most mornings but it was closed on the morning of the ballistic missile threat so we ventured a little further south to HVC.... a great find.

Their coffee is great, barristas with personality, and some of the best ingredients I've found in the area. Seeing Monin syrups behind the bar is an easy indication of attention to quality. I've mentioned to the Coffee Store on many occasions that they should either hide their terrible Torani syrups or hide them behind the bar but nothing changes. I do understand that Hawaii is famous for food colourings, Spam and other scary things but I'm sure there are many customers that would appreciate the good ingredients found at HVC.

We will return!

Thank you, Brie, for looking out for me and my love for the lemon bars here. We’re in Maui every December and every December we come here for our coffee and morning pastry. I then discovered the organic raw ball made with peanut butter that I started eating every morning before my morning run.
I have written a lot of reviews and have given very few 5 stars. The Coffee Store Napili deserves 5 stars. They make a lovely design on top of your latte.
My husband and I just reserved our two weeks in 2018 at our time share down the street from the coffee store. We will see them again late November 2018.
We will be sure to get the lemon bars.

We had high expectations, but were disappointed. The cocktails were so-so. The service was great. The food was really good but overpriced, but you expect that in a hotel.The restaurant is near the swimming pools which hurts the ambience. Lots of better places to visit on Maui

We came here upon arrival and awaiting our room at Ritz Carton. They have incredible shakes!!! They will also make them "adult" for an up charge but I'd recommend having without as it wasn't as good with. The burgers and pork sandwich were both okay but certainly not worth the $20-30 cost. We ordered with chips but it came with sweet potato fries. Asked the waiter for chips and never came. The view of the bay is gorgeous and can be chilly. We came back for shakes a second time but didn't not order food.

If you want to spend $100 for two people to have breakfast that is just a typical hotel breakfast, The Terrace is your spot. If you want a unique dining experience, it's not.
