At Betty’s Beach Cafe, you can relax while enjoying your food. The atmosphere is not pretentious and you can take in gorgeous views of the beach while eating your meal in the open air. In addition, if you come at the right time, you can catch the sounds of the luau next door. Also, watch for wildlife. You may see monk seals, or other creatures splashing around in the ocean.

Betty’s Beach Cafe is a bit out of the way, south of the main Front Street establishments in Lahaina. It may be a short walk, but this means that it’s not as busy as most of the restaurants in the main area. It’s a great stop before or after a boat tour or other adventure out on the water. 

Betty’s has both a brunch/lunch and dinner menu. There are many great selections on each one, with plenty of variety. You should be able to find something for everyone in your group. The prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. Come hungry, or take some food back for leftovers. If you would like, takeout is also available and you can order online.

Come for a meal or just stop at the bar to socialize with friends. With the laid-back atmosphere and gorgeous ocean views, anything goes.

Here are a few favorite items from the menu:

Eggs Benedict
Betty’s homemade hollandaise sauce is the star of this dish. The sauce is served over Canadian bacon and 2 Maui fresh poached eggs placed on a toasted English muffin. The dish is served with home fries.

Loco Moco
If you are looking for a protein-filled breakfast, try this dish. It is made with a 1/2lb charbroiled, natural grass fed  Maui Cattle Co. beef patty, which is served over steamed white rice. The dish is topped with Betty’s gravy and 2 fresh eggs over medium.

Banana Nut Pancakes
For those who enjoy a sweeter dish for breakfast, consider these pancakes. This dish comes with 3 banana nut pancakes with whipped butter and your choice of maple syrup or coconut syrup. 

Betty’s Fish and Chips
A classic, this version of fish and chips is made of lightly seasoned and breaded Mahi that is golden fried. French fries are served on the side. 

Island Fever Mahi
Mahi is a must in Hawaii. In this dish, the Mahi is lightly seasoned and charbroiled. It’s topped with roasted pineapple salsa and mango aioli. It is served with steamed white rice and seasonal vegetables. 

Spicy Chicken Sandwich
The chicken on this sandwich is crispy and juicy. It comes on a ciabatta roll with jack cheese, frisee lettuce, tomato, onion, and chipotle aioli. Enjoy French fries on the side.

Betty’s Kula Mai Tai
This amazing drink consists of tropical Kula toasted coconut rum, POG, a dash of grenadine, and a splash of Kula dark rum. It’s a crowd-pleaser!

Sunday Funday Mojito
A unique take on the mojito, this one includes fresh mint, light rum, and lime that’s topped with a splash of soda and champagne.

In addition to these great menu items, there are weekly specials. These include Prime Rib Night, Lobster Night, and a $3 mimosa special on the weekends.
