Cafe Mambo opens at 8am... sort of. We slipped in about 8:20 and the staff still hadn't got their act together. It took awile before we could walk out with lunch. For $8, we got an apple, small bag of cookies, small bag of chips, can of soda, and a good-sized chicken sandwich. The shrimp sandwich, not a shrimp salad but full of a dozen mid-sized shrimp jammed into the roll, was $10. If coming back through Paia, they'll even let you borrow a cooler for the day.
Sorry, we can't report on the restaurant menu. On the morning we stopped by, no one was ordering from the breakfast menu, but a slow stream of people wandered in to pick up picnic lunch. You will need to take food along on the trip to Hana... options along the way are limited at best.
