I’ve had my share of delicious breakfasts in my life, but nothing could prepare me for the bliss that I would devour on day 3 of our Maui getaway.

Poolside at the neighboring Napili Shores Resort is The Gazebo Restaurant located at 5315 Lower Honoapiilani Road.

The Gazebo

After taking a brief stroll along the beach, we walked up a few stairs to the entrance of this open air restaurant.

The Gazebo relies only on word-of-mouth advertising.  In steady rain and wind was a line of about 12 people waiting in line about 30 minutes before opening time at 7:30am.

By the time they opened, the line stretched around the restaurant.

I wondered if all the hype I heard about the Macadamia Nut Pancakes was true.  Could they really be THAT good?

I was about to find out…

Macadania Nut PancakesOh sweet nectar of the gods!

I’m not sure exactly what is in the sweet fluffy homemade whipped topping, but people have been known to bring in jars just to bottle up the heavenly concoction & take it home with them.

I don’t blame them!

Couple the macadamia nut sprinkled-on-top pancakes with the magical whipped cream and wash that down with a refreshing glass of POG (passion fruit juice, orange juice & guava juice) and that, my friends, is breakfast bliss.

And yes, the pancakes really are THAT good!

If you ever find yourself in West Maui, RUN, don’t walk to The Gazebo…and you too will experience breakfast bliss!

Speaking of sweetness, I just selected the 13 recipients of the “Super Sweet Blogger Award”.  Congrats to you all!
