Freshies Maui Review
This week, we had lunch and breakfast at Freshies Maui, the new restaurant taking over what was the Market Fresh Bistro. Located behind what was the Makawao Steak House, and next to Viewpoints Gallery, is a new (and much needed) spot for quick, fresh, delicious food. Call them at (808) 868-2350.
My favorite item so far was a mix of 2 dishes. I did a half-order of the Crunch Salad (spring greens, broccoli, red cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, in a creamy basil dressing with sunflowers, pumpkin seeds, mac nuts and cheese.) DELICIOUS. I also had a chicken taco a la carte. Everything was delicious! They bring a tray of hot sauces, including a homemade fire sauce we weren’t brave enough to try… this time.
They’ve got a strong drinks menu (see below) but we opted for the green and black iced tea. Delicious! Next time, I’ll get the Spaten or ask what they have on tap.
This morning I grabbed a coffee and their Huevos Rancheros (organic housemade pinto beans, brown rice, organic eggs, cheddar, corn tortillas, ranchero sauce, sour cream, guac, and black olives). I understand why they call themselves “Freshies” now. It was great and came out faster than I could’ve gotten a coffee at Sip Me. The coffee was good too. Next time, I want to try their Shrimp Scampi.
Worth Checking out!
Waiting on your food isn’t the only reason to visit just left of Freshies to watch glass blowing and see some truly incredible artwork at Hot Island Glass.
They’ve got beautiful large pieces as well as small souvenirs like jewelry. These artists have been producing in Makawao for decades, so don’t be afraid to support local and take something beautiful home.
While a sailing privately is already amazing, the Island Star offers Maui’s most unique and exclusive dining experiences.
We breakdown exactly what has changed at the Grand Wailea Luau (also called ‘Aha’Aina Luau) and the pros and cons after reopening.
