Maui Oct/Nov 2013 – Slappy Cakes

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? 🙂

Entry into Slappy Cakes

lots of booths and tables for groups

We went here at around 7am and it wasn’t crowded at all. But it did get more crowded later as we were leaving.

Lots of space

Pancakes are their namesake and obviously their most popular choice in the restaurant.

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.

The griddle in the table

All my ingredients were brought to me to DIY….so here goes!

 Batter first, then fruit, then mac nuts…grilling my first 2 pancakes!

adding more batter on the second side so it will cook more evenly when it’s flipped.

I was able to flip them over with not much issue.

The finished result! creme fraiche, coconut syrup, completes the fruity pancake. Each order comes with enough batter to make about 5 regular sized pancakes.

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.

Crab and steak Benedict – was not bad, but I think it was only ok in flavor.

Overall, it’s a fun breakfast spot in West Maui.

Hope you’ll give them a try!
