This was our 3rd trip to Maui and our 3rd visit to The Gazebo. We discovered this little gem in a book by a local about Maui. The first time we visited I think we waited about ten minutes for a table. Last year we waited about an hour. Maybe longer. We were a table of seven mind you. This year we ended up going at lunch time even though it really is more well known as a breakfast join (but does have a full lunch menu) and we were gobsmacked when there was NO LINE. Holy moly. Lesson learned!!! Apparently it slows down quite a bit after noon and they close around two. We still got breakfast. Well me and the Kid got breakfast. The Hubs got both breakfast and lunch. You see, the Hubs is of the mind that if there are two really awesome things on a menu, you owe it to yourself to order both and take one with you for later. Makes sense…in a gluttonous way.
We shared the pineapple. Mostly because when you are in Maui it is a city bylaw that you eat as much fresh pineapple as humanly possible. Plus, look how cute it is!
The number one item in our opinion is the pancakes. They are just nice big fluffy pancakes but we get the banana, pineapple, macnut ones and they are covered in a special topping. This my friends is the key. The topping looks like some type of whip cream but it’s actually dream whip (cool whip for my Canadian brethren) with butterscotch and maple syrup. OMG. So good. Not vegan, but so so good!
The Hubs also gets the Hawaiian fried rice with eggs on top. Somewhat of a traditional breakfast dish over there and without the meat and eggs it wouldn’t be too bad. He lives for that stuff. He wanted to go back and get other order for take out to eat on the plane. No. Seriously.
You might notice that his also had white chocolate chips. Ya…
Anyways, if you are in Maui, check out the Gazebo. You won’t be disappointed.
