Maui’s Best Brunch Buffet?!

For some when you think of Kaanapali you think of ocean-front hotels, visitors galore and an abundance of dining options. Thankfully there’s a hidden gem (well it’s not that hidden) that features endless favorites for locals, a price point that is accessible and an over abundance of options to satiate any appetite. Go through the hotel lobby of the Kaanapali Beach Hotel and head straight to the tiki sculptures because this place is so lively you don’t want to wait too long for a table.

The Kaanapali Beach Hotel’s Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet is extraordinary.

The Tiki Terrace Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet is unlike any other I have seen in Hawaii. I would say it is more like a Vegas-style buffet with its magnitude options from pastries, fresh fruits, raw bar, carving station, multiple dessert tables, huge salad bar, hot dishes, fresh seafood, omelets and more. You might think these are your typical buffet choices, but the shear portion size and the diversity of the dishes is what impressed me. It wasn’t the crab legs, oysters and heaping mounds of shrimp cocktail, it was the many variations of fresh authentic poke, the over abundance of homemade local cakes and the impressive variety of hot pans (literally too many to taste and count).

Served 9am-1pm and showcases live local entertainment and bottomless mimosas.

Then you move on to the Prime Rib, sushi, soft shell crab, pipikaula, fresh poi, chocolate fountain and bottomless mimosas! My stomach was not prepared for such gluttony. Alas I paced myself and stuck to the things I wanted most – poke, crab, shrimp and dessert. At the price point of $48 for adults (includes server poured mimosas) and $25 keiki 6-12 years-old (children under 5 eat free with a paying adult) this really was well worth the value, the quality and the decadence.

Overall, the bounty of the food options paired with the entertainment and touches of the aloha spirit made us feel right at home in Hawaii. Many local people come here to enjoy the food, the music and best of all be with family.
