One of my favorite things to do while on Maui is eat. I’m not much of a fan of hamburgers, but one place in particular makes an amazing one that I just can’t stop coming back for. Cool Cat Cafe is a 50’s style diner hidden away in the Wharf Cinema Center in Lahaina, Maui. If you haven’t been there, it’s quite easy to miss. Next time you’re strolling front st and you happen to get to the banyan tree, look upstairs in the Wharf Cinema Center, you’ll notice it right away. Cool Cat Cafe has won best burger on Maui for the past 5 years in a row. I personally couldn’t agree more, as I ate there for lunch 3 of my 11 days there.
My personal favorite is the Don Ho Burger, a Hawaiian burger with teriyaki sauce, bacon, and fresh pineapple. Every time I go there I mean to try something different, but I can never bring myself to change my order. They also make some amazing onion rings, most burgers don’t come with fries so i would suggest an order of frings (fries and onion rings). I have yet to be disappointed in Cool Cat Cafe and it will always be one of my favorite spots to eat while visiting Maui. Locals be sure to ask for kama??ina discount and save yourself 20%.
