I'm going back to Maui in a couple of months and need to know about this place.

We were in Maui a couple of years ago and drove inland, to Paia, to eat at a well-known restaurant which happened to be closed. We were disappointed and hungry but explored the few shops in the area. We heard the owner of one of the stores tell her salesperson she was going around the corner for lunch. We asked the girl what was around the corner. She sent us to a nondescript, unadvertised, hole in the wall place with mismatched chairs and a limited menu. BUT, wow! The entire menu consisted of crepes with maybe 8 different fillings, savory or sweet and about as many different smoothies, all made with fresh local ingredients. I had a ratatouille crepe and a papaya,mango, ginger smoothie. One of the best and most satisfying meals I've ever had. That meal was so good we drove the 40 miles from our hotel to eat the same meal the next day. The owner was a young Frenchman married to a local Islander.

Will someone please tell me the name of this place, if it's still there and why it isn't touted all over the board?
