"Server" failed to inform us that we order at the counter. Very inattentive. Guy at the register was pushy and rude. I watched everyone working their use their bare hands to put salad on the plates without washing their hands. Very slow to bring the food out. Mushroom goat cheese omlette had three tiny mushrooms on top.

We had brunch at Market Fresh Bistro. We ordered the Blackened Catch Benedict and the omelette - both were cooked perfectly. Service is attentive and gracious. We would definitely come here again and try dinner next time.

The food is consistently outstanding. The standards are fabulous and the specials are always creative and delicious and all of high-quality. Lots of fresh vegetables, too. Save room for dessert.

The atmosphere is perfect in the heart of this special little town. Outside brunch was a special find (wish they had mimosas). Food was good but not anything above and beyond. We were surprised to see that you had to go inside and order (almost like fast food) yet the food was delivered with great service and follow-up. Avoid the french toast, cold and dry. The benedict was a SUCCESS!

Wonderful, fresh local food and ingredients expertly prepared. Our classic Eggs Benedict and goat cheese omelette were simply stellar and the locally produced lilliqoi preserves on toast was to die for!

Menu is simple for brunch with about 10-items. They sound better then they are. French toast was not dipped enough to saturate the bread and was dry inside, the upcountry berries were good but minimal, vanilla butter still hard from the fridge for several minutes, "mushroom" omelette was empty inside with only a small scattering of cooked local mushrooms on top. It was served with whole wheat toast that was poor in quality, but the jam!!! Made by a local farmer- the very tart likikoi jam was yummy! . No wonder the prices seemed reasonable, you don't get much! On the upside, the location is nice within a courtyard with lots of locals (and their many dogs) under a large tree. Their fresh fruit juice was also delicious!

This was my first time at the Bistro. While everything looked good and they take changes - like no bread on the sandwich, I wasn't impressed. I will definitely give them another try and order the chicken instead of the fish.

Will review again after the next visit. So want this place to succeed. (Be aware their menu is not online as they do their menus daily depending on the ingredients available that day. Will call ahead!)

We loved it! Too bad it only open at 9 am for bfast as most of Maui activities require that you get up rather early! Delicious eggs benedict with fresh mahi mahi, too bad you have to add 2 pounds for organic eggs as the plate is already around usd 14-15 :) nevertheless we loved the place and are going back for the tasting menu dinner!

I like market fresh. Been there a few times and it does really taste fresh and well made. I don't enjoy and avoid eating mainland eggs when I go out to breakfast so the local organic eggs option was sweet. Great organic beverage choices. Yes, menu can be limited, but they do have pretty short hours, and portions can look a little smaller but you do get full. I've read some really strange reviews online on yelp which were discouraging...but they seem nice when I go.

Few things though I'd really Love if they were open a lil earlier and later and consider expanding hours...
Most importantly I'd LOVE to see more VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE options... As more and more ppl are becoming consciously aware of how good these changes can be.

On Thursday nights they have a special meal, ours was "Tastes of Hawaii" and was $75/person plus drinks. They use all organic, fresh ingredients and everyone sits together in long tables. Was fun meeting locals and visitors alike while having a 7 course meal... Very unique dining experience!

They also accommodated my companion's need for eating gluten free despite having a set meal for everyone :-)

Both opa and ahi sandwiches were fresh and delicious. Cheesecake with strawberry topping was well done.
