Castaway Cafe http://www.castawaycafe.com is one of those out-of-the-way restaurants that offers good food for a good value. Located in the Kaanapali resort area on the west side of Maui, Castaway Cafe has a wide selection of pupus, sandwiches, burgers and dinner entrees.
While their breakfast and dinner menus serve good food, I particularly like their lunch menu served from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. My favorite sandwich is The Clubhouse, and I think it's the best club sandwich on the west side of Maui.
Breakfast items on their menu include burritos, biscuits and gravy, huevos rancheros, omelletes, and a variety of pancakes. The lunch menu has several good salads, along with burgers and hot dogs, sandwiches, and Hawaiian-style plate lunches.
The dinner menu includes several pupus worth trying, like their coconut shrimp, Maui mac-n-cheese, and homemade soups which change often. Entrees include garlic shrimp, braised beef short ribs, bacon-wrapped pork chops, and a "fresh catch" fish dish.

- Try breakfast and lunch. Those are their two best serving times, as their dinner entrees are not the best in the Kaanapali resort area.
- Sandwiches and burgers at lunch are very good. They also have several good salads and a good menu for children.
- Try some of their pupus, like the coconut shrimp and calamari. They have an excellent outdoor seating atmosphere, with great views of the ocean and sunset.
- If eating in the dining room area, ask for a table that is outside. The palm trees shade you from any direct sunlight.
- Parking is difficult, but as you approach the resort, look for parking to you right. There are several parking spots allocated for Castaway Cafe with signs.
Directions. Take Hwy. 30 to the Kai Ala intersection, and turn toward the ocean. About a block past the intersection, take your first left-hand turn.
