We would call this hole-in-the-wall family-run business quaint if they served excellent — or even just good — food. Instead, we call it something unprintable because of the bad coffee, disinterested, lazy, almost hostile service (we’ve waited thirty minutes to get that bad coffee), and mediocre, commercial ingredients prepared with very little love or attention to taste. While we like the idea of eggs Benedict served with lox on a bagel, it’s not as good as it sounds. The pancakes are stiff, and everything takes thirty minutes longer than it should. The pineapple juice is thirst-quenching, though we suspect “fresh squeezed” might be an “exaggeration.” The prices are low, especially for Front Street, but we think they survive — and have lines out the door — only because they’re one of the only places to get breakfast in Lahaina town. Go to Moose’s or Lahaina Coolers instead.
