This was a breakfast eatery recommended to us by the concierge at the Andaz for a fun interactive meal. I was initially going to file this under the Cheap Eats series I was doing on Maui (part 1 and part 2), but after a while I realized that breakfast at Slappy Cakes can be pricey especially if you do the D-I-Y pancakes as the fillings and toppings can add up. But it is definitely less expensive than a resort breakfast buffet and I do recommend it as I think it’s unique and fun, plus the space is large and airy which is great for larger parties.
Slappy Cakes is located right next to the Honua Kai complex just north of Kaanapali Beach. It is technically walkable from the Honua Kai but why not just drive? 🙂
We went here at around 7am and it wasn’t crowded at all. But it did get more crowded later as we were leaving.
Ther menu has the DIY section of pancakes or you can order a regular entree – including different eggs benedicts and other savory and sweet lamisil buy online breakfast offerings.
I selected the DIY pancakes and chose my batter: I selected whole grain (to be healthy). My fillings were fresh berries, pineapple, and mac nuts (sooo ono!!). For my topping I chose creme fraiche which would add a nice tang to the sweetess. I topped it all off with coconut and maple syrups they had at each table.
Steve opted go with one of their entrees which prepared in the kitchen. He got the crab and steak benedict which sounded better than it tasted.
Overall, it’s a fun breakfast spot in West Maui.
Hope you’ll give them a try!
