Eskimo Candy doesn't try to pretend to be anything it isn't - located in a commercial district, this small market & cafe is attached to their fresh seafood distribution warehouse. Eskimo Candy's main focus is on being purveyors of the best quality seafood to restaurants and grocery stores - and that my friends, is precisely why they've got the choicest pick of seafood for their market & cafe customers.

Eskimo Candy got our #1 rating - because not only do they have among the best fresh fish for sale to the public, but they've also got a superb and surprisingly inexpensive cafe to eat-in or take-out. The prices are astoundingly inexpensive compared to the quality - I mean, as far as the prepared food goes, you could easily pay significantly more for this food sitting on a plate just a short drive down South Kihei Road.

They have a few indoor tables, and some outdoor picnic seating - but the real way to do Eskimo Candy is to get the food to take-out, then drive a few minutes down the road and enjoy a tasty picnic on the spectacular South Maui beach of your choice.

If you're staying in a condo with a kitchen and plan on cooking during your vacation, unprepared fish is also available at very reasonable prices.

- The poke and fish & chips are their specialties.
- Choose the ?fresh fish? option (instead of frozen) on the fish & chips.

    Loved Eskimo Candy! We grabbed it on our South Maui day (from West Maui), and then drove down specifically for another chance at the Candy. I just now realized that I missed the tip on the fresh for the fish and chips, and still thought it was some of the best I’d ever had. My wife raved for two days about the fish tacos too. She’s been trying them everywhere we go, and these were the best. We wouldn’t have found this great spot without you! Thanks!
