Are you looking for some delicious food to be catered at your wedding? Well, the bride and groom sure did make a great decision by choosing Cafe O Lei! Cafe O Lei is an incredibly popular restaurant here in Maui. The first restaurant was opened in 1997, in Makawao. It all started as a 5-table outdoor cafe serving sandwiches, salads, coffee, and tea in Maui’s Upcountry.
Owners Michael and Dana Pastula have been married for over 35 years. Mike has worked as a chef for Hyatt and Sheraton hotels, The Lodge at Koele, Aston Wailea, and Outrigger Resorts Hawaii. Dana brought her food and beverage experience from working in hotel restaurant management at Hyatt Hotels, Manele Bay Resort, and the Wailea Four Seasons Resort.
It didn’t take long for her husband to join her at Cafe O’Lei, with Mike leaving his job as executive chef for the Outrigger Resort in Wailea to focus on expanding their business. The Cafe O’Lei brand quickly evolved into one of Maui’s favorite and most trusted for quality restaurants and catering on the island! Together, the family operates Cafe O’Lei at the Mill House, Cafe O’Lei at the Dunes, Cafe O’Lei Kihei, ‘ami ‘ami Bar & Grill and Cafe O’Lei Catering. Cafe O’Lei is truly a family-owned and family-run business!
One of the things that we love most about them, is that they use the freshest ingredients. We highly recommend choosing Cafe O Lei for any of your catering needs.
