Get Your Morning Fix At The Cinnamon Roll Place In Kihei Maui

You’re up with the birds and out walking the beach road in Kihei and then it hits you, the delicious aroma of fresh baked, warm cinnamon rolls and coffee! You make a little detour along an unassuming strip mall and WOW, this is the spot!

Cinnamon Roll Place Maui

The Cinnamon Roll Place in Kihei, Maui has been a town favorite for years and it’s easy to see why, or smell why. With warm cinnamon-brown sugar smells wafting it’s just too much to resist.

Cinnamon Roll Place Maui

The Cinnamon Roll Place is a tiny little hole-in-the-wall breakfast eatery that serves up, well… cinnamon rolls. They also have coffee drinks of course and their breakfast menu includes delicious items like cinnamon bread pudding, scones, island style banana bread, muffins and cookies.

But it’s the Cinnamon Rolls that bring them their loyal following! Especially when they’re topped with cream cheese frosting and macadamia nuts!

The Cinnamon Roll Place hours are 7 days a week 5:30 am to 3:00 pm and they’re conveniently located just next door to our condo complex, and across from Kamaole II beach (think ‘grab breakfast and coffee and hit the beach to watch the world wake up‘.)

Take A Dog To The Beach With Maui Humane Society’s ‘Beach Buddies’ Program

Beach Buddies Program
Take A Dog To The Beach With Maui Humane Society’s ‘Beach Buddies’ Program

 

Visitors can offer one of Maui Humane Society’s chosen ‘Beach Buddies’ a day of fun out of the shelter every Wednesday and Friday from 11am to 4pm.

 

https://www.facebook.com/MauiHumaneSociety/videos/10154179166368439/

 

If you’re like me, an animal lover, and miss your pets every time you go on vacation, worry not! You can ‘rent-a-pup’ for a day with Maui Humane Society. For a small donation you can get your dog fix and give a lucky dog a day away from the shelter.

Beach Buddies Program

How It Works: Each outing will start with a brief talk about safety, what to do and where to go on the island! When you arrive at the shelter at 11am you will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer at the main entrance. We will have your ‘Beach Buddy’ backpack ready with supplies and your dog will be bathed and ready to go!

Beach Buddies Program

If you live on island and aren’t visiting you can still volunteer to bring a buddy to the beach.

Q. I would like to bring my own dogs along on my Beach Buddies excursion. Is that allowed?

A. Although our Beach Buddies are often chosen for being dog-friendly, their compatibility with other dogs is still unpredictable so we ask that your Beach Buddy be the only dog during your excursion. Our shelter dogs share kennels, so they benefit greatly from the one-on-one attention that Beach Buddies provides. Plus, being the only dog gives your Beach Buddy a chance to really stand out to potential adopters!

 

 

A suggested donation of $20 is greatly appreciated and helps to offset costs associated with operating the program. You can support Beach Buddies by using the PayPal link below, gifting items from the shelter’s Amazon Wishlist, or donating in person at the time of your excursion.

Beach Buddies Program

Sign up using this link to guarantee a dog for that day. Available dogs are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Sign up at least 48 hours in advance to get first pick of dogs available for that week’s outing! If you are available less than 48 hours from a scheduled Beach Buddy day, let us know if you would like to be placed on standby – we will call you if a dog is available.

Visit this link for More Info about this amazing program and many others.

 

 

 

 

The Maui Humane Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has been in existence for 66 years and is the only open admission animal shelter on the island of Maui. Our mission is “to protect and serve the lives of Maui’s animals, accepting all in need,educating the community, and inspiring respect and compassion towards all animals”.

Each year MHS helps thousands of animals, taking in over 6,000 animals to the shelter and serving many times that number through community outreach programs. Equally important, through our programs and services, we provide support for Maui’s approximately 90,000 pet owners as well as Animal Management Services for the County of Maui.

Ha‘ikū Ho’olaule’a and Flower Festival | 25th Annual Event

Haiku Hoolaule’a Flower Festival
Ha‘ikū Ho’olaule’a and Flower Festival

The 25th annual Ha’iku Ho’olaule’a and Flower Festival will be ground zero at Haiku Elementary School on April 14 for ono food, live music, entertainment and just plain fun for young and old alike.

Haiku Hoolaule’a Flower Festival

Saturday, April 14, 2018
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Ha‘ikū Elementary School

Admission will be free to the event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. that draws an estimated 7,000 people annually, according to event organizers.

Visitors attending local festivals get a chance to engage with the rhythm of Maui living in a way that paid activities can’t provide.  Get to know what it’s like living in an island paradise, see the island traditions, ways and local style.  It’s so well worth attending a local event and Ha‘ikū (pronounced high-koo) is such a magical town! 

Planned as a “colorful, unique, family-friendly community celebration,” the event also will feature art, keiki games and activities and “tents overflowing with brilliant tropical blooms and plants of every description.” One of Maui’s largest silent auctions will be staged in the school buildings and grounds, and there will be a bake sale and restaurant row with some of Maui’s favorite restaurants.

Also being featured will be a Haiku history “pop-up museum” in the school library. It will have a new display revealing the story of Haiku’s internment camp.

The Maui community and visitors alike are invited to spend the day, bring their families and lawn chairs and join the Ha‘ikū community to enjoy fabulous live entertainment, culinary delights from local restaurants and the Ha‘ikū PTA, the famous Haiku bake sale, one of the largest silent auctions on Maui, floral design and lei-making contests, a Ha‘ikū historical display, an artisan marketplace, plenty of activities for Keiki and much more.

The event will have a new interactive Keiki Zone with games and activities and the addition of Digital Bus Maui, a Mobile Science & Technology Education Laboratory, offering the keiki hands-on educational adventures.

Haiku is a small, close-knit, unique, Upcountry town that really cares about its keiki,”Gagne said. “The founding committee wanted to create an event that celebrated Haiku as a destination and as a community, and to showcase its wealth of history, culture and community.”

Scheduled musical acts include Dr. Nat and Rio Ritmo; singer/songwriter Terri Garrison (fresh from opening for Willie Nelson); ‘Ulalena star Nara Boone; the Maui Samba Band; the King Kekaulike Jazz Band; The Troublemakers; the Kalama Ukulele Band; Jay Auweloa; Maui Ohana Band; and Jarrett Roback Trio. Haiku resident Tim Wolfe will be the event master of ceremonies.

Also, the late falsetto master Uncle Richard Ho’opi’i will be honored. He performed every year at the Ho’olaule’a. And there will be a tribute to the late David Florence, who chaired the event in 1997 and created a magical train ride for keiki.

Haiku Hoolaule’a Flower Festival

Haiku Hoolaule’a Flower Festival

Another popular draw is the Ha’iku Community Association Community Living Tent, sponsored by Ha’iku Mill. Visitors will be treated to free hands-on activities like making haku lei with the Native Hawaiian Plant Society and painting coconuts for Malamalama Maui’s Maka o Ka ‘Aina (“Eyes of the Earth”) community art project.

Visitors to the community living tent also may register to vote, catch up on local issues at the community association booth, learn about local equestrian activities, check out free pet spay-and-neuter programs, and see how to combat invasive species and prepare for emergency response to natural disasters.

Event sponsors include Mana Foods, the Aloha ‘Aina Center of Ha’iku, Alexander & Baldwin, Savitt Family Foundation, Family and Friends of Agriculture, County Council Member Elle Cochran, Maui Tempe Co. and the King Kekaulike Culinary Academy. All of those sponsors are donating 100 percent of their food booth profits to the event. Many other supporting sponsors will be honored on the day of the event.

Haiku Hoolaule’a Flower Festival

The Ha’iku Ho’olaule’a started 25 years ago as a way to raise funds for Haiku Elementary School beyond what is budgeted for it by the state Department of Education. Because of community fundraising, the school has been able to supplement costs for field trips, equipment and classroom supplies and offer programs in art, music, drama, creative movement, science, technology, engineering, math, physical education and gardening.

The Spring School Bazaar has long been a fundraiser for the school, but 25 years ago, school parents Mike Gagne and the late Ed Silverstein came up with the idea of holding a second, larger Haiku community event to help raise money for the school.

They turned to the Ha’iku Community Association and the then recently formed Boys and Girls Club of Ha’iku for support and created the hoolaulea and flower festival.

Haiku Hoolaule’a Flower Festival

Parking for the event will be available for $5 across Hana Highway from the Haiku Community Center. Visitors also may park and enter the event via the community center grounds.

Lahaina Banyan Tree Birthday Party Celebration | April 21-22, 2018

Lahaina Banyan Tree Birthday Party
Come celebrate at the Lahaina Banyan Tree Birthday Party

Lahaina wishes Hau`oli la Hanau (Happy Birthday) to the Banyan Tree with a celebration in the park. Probably the most famous landmark in Lahaina – the Banyan Tree was planted in 1873 by the Sheriff to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Missionaries. The tree was brought from India and was only 8″ high at the time of planting. It now has a dozen main trunks and spreads over two-thirds of an acre. The Banyan Tree is noteworthy for its size. It has grown by dropping roots from its branches that then become additional trunks.

Celebrated each year the third weekend in April, this party includes a birthday cake, Maui artists displaying nature artworks, a magician and art activities for children as well as Hawaiian music and hula on stage. Held in Banyan Tree Park on Front Street in the heart of Lahaina. Hours are from 9 am to 5 pm.

April 21-22, 2018

More info: 888.310.1117 or visit Lahaina Action Committee

Map Below

More about Lahaina’s Banyan tree from The Lahaina Restoration Foundation;

“Dominating the courthouse square in downtown Lahaina is one of the most remarkable aboreal specimens. One quarter of a mile in circumference, its octopus-like limbs stretch outward, spreading a vast network of branches, leaves and aerial roots towards the streets and buildings surrounding it. Extraordinary, almost surreal, it seems more like a fantastic prop from a Tim Burton film than a organism in real life. How did this giant come to lay its roots in this tiny port of Lahaina? Here’s the story: 

On April 24, 1873, to honor the 50th anniversary of the first Protestant mission in Lahaina, which was started at the request of Queen Keōpūolani, the sacred wife and widow of King Kamehameha the Great, Sheriff William Owen Smith planted the exotic Indian Banyan. At the time it was only eight feet tall.

After settling in, the tree slowly sent branches outward from its trunk. From the branches, a series of aerial roots descended towards the earth. Some of them touched the ground and dug in, growing larger until eventually turning into trunks themselves. Over the years, Lahaina residents lovingly encouraged the symmetrical growth of the tree by hanging large glass jars filled with water on the aerial roots that they wanted to grow into a trunk. In time, what was once a small sapling matured into a monumental behemoth. 

Maui_Banyan Tree Lahaina

It now stands over 60 feet high, has 16 major trunks in addition to the massive original and shades nearly two-thirds of an acre. Maui County Arborist Committee carefully maintains the health and shape of this majestic tree. It is the largest banyan tree in the entire United States. In recent times, the courthouse square was renamed “Banyan Tree Park” in its honor. Lahaina Restoration Foundation takes care of the park grounds.

Over the years, the Lahaina Banyan Tree has come to serve many functions. First of all, it’s a great place to relax. Several benches are scattered under the large canopy to rest tired feet after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. It’s a favorite for taking photos. The long, undulating branches and stringy roots make for interesting backdrops. On the weekends, local artist and crafters set up tables and booths to display and sell their works from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Often, you can enjoy live music, hula and other cultural dances on stage in the park.”

Wine Tasting At MauiWine – Maui’s Upcountry Winery & Ulupalakua Vineyards

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards
Wine Tasting At MauiWine – Maui’s Upcountry Winery And Ulupalakua Vineyards

I’ll be the first to admit that we’re just a little bit wine snobby. Our primary home is in the Napa Valley and most of our friends are involved one way or another in the wine industry. In fact Jeff’s family has a long history in this valley (7 generations!) and our son continues the tradition and works in wine sales (and of course we love to drink good wine, who doesn’t?)  What’s very interesting to us, and fun little fact that a wine grower from our town here in Napa Valley has been involved with MauiWine since it’s wine-making inception! We love that Napa Valley-Maui connection!

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

When you think of Maui, wine country isn’t the first thing that comes to mind but MauiWine & Ulupalakua Vineyards are putting out some very lovely wines.  Located on the hillside of Haleakala in the upcountry area of Maui known as Kula, MauiWine is producing some delicious varietals!  The cooler upcountry temperatures combined with the unique terroir allow for some amazing and complex tastings!

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

Wine grapes are not the only basis for their wines, they produce their famous pineapple wines and sparkling wine as well as a raspberry dessert wine.

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

What started out as a temporary wine making exercise soon flourished into a signature wine. While waiting for the grapes to mature, MauiWine began making wine from local pineapples. It’s popularity earned it a permanent spot on their wine list!

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

Their signature pineapple wine ‘Maui Splash’ is crisp, sweet and slightly acidic with rich pineapple overtones. Perfect for afternoon wine coolers on a tropical island!

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

MauiWine and surrounding estate and vineyards has a rich and varied history and heritage dating back to 1841. It’s well worth a visit to learn about this rich history.

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

The Estate wine list includes a Grenache with tasting notes of “roasted nuts. cherry fig. orange rind. cactus. wet fire wood. olive. dusty. plumb. progression. vagrant. wood cabin. curious.” Very interesting tasting notes, wouldn’t you say? I know they had me at ‘cherry fig, orange rind’.  But I doubt I’d turn down sips of the Malbec either how does ‘belgium chocolate. dark cherry. blueberry cream. sweet mint. figgy. pistachios. gushy‘ sound?

Spending an afternoon wine-tasting upcountry is a lovely experience.  We love to sit on their veranda and sip while nibbling on a nicely laid out charcuterie plate. There is a large checker-board for an impromptu game or head over to the lawn for a little game of corn hole.

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

The well manicured tropical landscape is inviting and makes us think back to a quieter time when upcountry Maui was Paniolo country.

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

Visiting the winery is easy, just head to Kula along highway 37 – travel through Maui Beef company territory and enjoy the expansive views. You’ll come upon the winery on the left with the Ulupalakua Ranch Store and deli on the right.  I recommend having lunch at the Ulupalakua Ranch Store and wine-tasting in one afternoon. We’ll add a blog post soon about the Ulupalakua Ranch Store and Deli soon!

Wine Tasting MauiWine Winery Vineyards

We found that we really liked one of the wines they produce so we joined the wine club so that we can get it back home as well as provide for our guests. One of our favorites is Kula,  a crisp white wine at a very ‘weekday wine‘ price point – and with tasting notes of; ‘ginger, peach skin, tangerine oil, apricot, honeysuckle. pomelo. asian pear. jacaranda, nectar flower, sweet basil root‘, it is indeed a yummy wine!

The wine club is well worth checking out (make sure they can ship to your state.) Jeff and Casey, our son, really like the 2015 Syrah. With tasting notes of “kiawe smoke. dill. plumb. rhubarb. morels. wet forest. dates. tobacco. darkness. new leather. thought provoking. masculine. fig. green tea” it doesn’t take much convincing to sip this luscious wine!

Here, it is our privilege to continue this rich tradition of home-grown hospitality as we offer a taste of our handcrafted wines. Whether you plan to visit our historic winery in a group or as a romantic outing for two, you can experience all of our unique wines here, including our popular pineapple wines, Traditional Methode sparkling wines, and our small production estate wines.

Tastings are offered here every day from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and guided tours of the historic estate, production area, and wine cellar depart the King’s Cottage lanai at 10:30 a.m. & 1:30 p.m.”

Sugar Beach Bake Shop | Churning Out Kihei’s Best Malasadas

Sugar Beach Bake Shop
Sugar Beach Bake Shop

On a recent trip to Maui we splurged a bit and went off of our normal eating routine to indulge in local style Malasadas from Sugar Beach Bake Shop. I can see now why they have such a loyal following! They churn out fresh, hot Malasadas (read more about what Malasadas are as well as other unique Hawai’ian style local foods here).

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

Malasadas are Hawaii’s favorite fried treat. A malasada is a Portuguese confection, made of egg-sized balls of yeast dough that are deep-fried in oil and coated with granulated sugar or other flavors like li hing mui or green tea. Think Mainland donut holes on steroids. Suffice it to say that they are amazing – and all Malasadas are not created equally!  We tried several and liked Sugar Beach Bake Shop’s the best in Kihei. 

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

They’re well worth the diet splurge and I found that an order of two per person was just the right amount but could have easily inhaled a half a dozen! The outside is just perfectly crispy with just the right amount of cinnamon-sugar added and the inside is light and fluffy and more of an eggy-consistancy. Not doughy, just more dense than a standard donut.  You’ll just have to get up with the turtle doves and head on over to give them a try!

Sugar Beach Bake Shop
Other delicious treats served up by Sugar Beach Bake Shop

There are other very popular Malasada producers like T. Komoda Store and Bakery in Makawao but we’ll focus on the Kihei bakery for this post.

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

Made to order in the flavor or with the filling of your choice (malasadas with filling must be ordered a day ahead), these pipping hot delicious little Portuguese donuts are a real delight.

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

TIP: Get there early, they turn off the fryers at 9am and often sell out.

TIP: Try.all.the.flavors

TIP: Custard filled must be ordered a day in advance

TIP: Try their other delicious baked goods and coffee!

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

From their website; Sugar Beach Bake Shop handcrafts from the freshest ingredients, including sweet cream butter, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, fresh-picked *lilikoi, Dole Bananas and Pineapples and Maui Meyer Lemon zest. Inspired by local flavors and ingredients, our ever-changing selection of desserts and “favorites” are always baked fresh daily. Serving up fresh-brewed Hawaiian OMA coffee and house-made lemonades and much ALOHA all day!

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

Sugar Beach Bake Shop

 

They’re easy to find, right between their sister Ululani Shave Ice shop and the ubiquitous ABC store on the far north side of South Kihei Road

Bakery hours are Sunday – Saturday 6am to 4pm

Phone: (808) 757-8285

Location: 61 S Kihei Rd. Kihei, HI 96753

 

*lilikoi is one of Hawaii’s most popular exotic fruits, lilikoi is also known as yellow passionfruit. Lilikois are extremely tart yet incredibly sweet, and so while only the bold tongue will eat them raw, when added to your favorite drink, jam or dessert, lilikoi make everything better.
