Island of Maui

What’s the “Best Kept Secret” in Kihei? Café Carmen, nestled in the Maui Research and Technology Park (just off the highway mountainside on Lipoa, above Elleair golf course, in the black glass building). This charming café is the creation of, and managed by, Lynn Stettler and her husband Chef Roger (also the Executive Chef at Four Seasons Resort). A wide variety of deliciousness is offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner with brunch on Sunday. The emphasis is on locally grown produce, prepared in simple but tasty ways, accompanied by artisan coffee drinks, wines on tap and a great beer list. Off the beaten path, but well worth discovering!
