While Paia is primarily a surfer town, Haiku, a few miles east on the Hana Highway, is the windsurfer hangout of choice. Down-to-earth Pauwela Café is fast, cheap, and healthy—if you stick to the vegetarian options (try the Haiku taro burger on a whole-wheat bun). Those on an early-morning path to indulgence opt for pain perdu (French bread baked in orange-vanilla custard and served with mixed fruit). The lunch menu consists of salads, burritos, and sandwiches such as Kalua turkey with roasted sweet green chilies. People-watching and cheap entrés make up for the nonexistent decor.

Open daily 6 am to 2 pm.
