Eskimo Candy: Kihei, Maui
Maui has a special place in my heart made even more special because I have family there.
I really loved the name of this cafe, Eskimo Candy, because it's so not Hawaiian or exudes paradise-like feelings.
At first, you may be apprehensive about this little market and café, but it's a local spot! You can get takeout or eat-in and the food is light and delicious. You would think that eating coconut shrimp and chips before the beach would make you feel a bit gross -- not this place! The fish tacos were magical. I've had my fair share of fish tacos living in Southern California and they were light, crisp and flavorful. They also have a poke bar so you can design your own bowl.
Other tips: seating is limited, parking lot is tight, clean bathroom.
