You'll know what I mean if you know what musubi is. Get there early. Part of the fun is talking with the ladies behind the counter. Hawaii's version of a South Philly bakery. One of our favorite spots.

We ate there twice and both meals were delicious. The spicy fried chicken and mahi plates were yummy. And loved the lady behind the counter was just precious. They are only open until 4:00.

I've been to Village Snack and Bake Shop previously and wanted to show my family members where to get a true Hawaiian breakfast of Spam and Loco Moco. Many local people eat here and not too many tourists know about it. I heard about from a bell man at The Princeville Resort (now St Regis), the last time we were... More

I had read about Loco Moco being a local specialty on the islands, so I was happy to see it on the menu here where our tour bus driver dropped us for an hour of shopping and lunch after touring Hanalei Bay/Pier. The plates were ready quickly and we loved the Loco Moco with brown rice. They had huge hot... More

A local favorite and I can see why....it was great so we went twice! The spicy chili fried chicken was the best! It came with brown or white rice and green or macaroni salad. The baked goods were super also. Too much food for a lite lunch!

Call me crazy, but I love walking into a small cafe or dive where loose-leaf paper or colored construction paper signs, announcing additions to the menu umpteen years ago, are yellowed or faded with age. In the right restaurant, it's absolutely charming. Kuddos Village Snack Shop. Visited last summer for the sole purpose of tasting that famous Haupia pie. Out... More

We ate lunch and breakfast here. The chili pepper chicken is moist fried chicken thighs dipped in a mildly spicy pepper sauce. It was served with brown or white rice and choice of Mac salad or green salad. For $9.50, you can't go wrong. Breakfast was tropical pancakes - banana, macadamia nuts and coconut in the batter. Yum! Husband had... More

Stopped here on our way to the beach to grab sandwiches. Decent sandwiches at reasonable prices, an easy place to duck in and grab fuel for the day.

This place looks like a complete dive - but, as we were in desperate need for a bakery, we thought we'd give it a go when we saw it - and we were so, so glad that we did. The (still warm) banana and macadamia nut loaf was so incredibly delicious that I can only wish that I'd found this... More

We just love the chili pepper chicken. It comes on a plate lunch. I get the brown rice and green salad. My husband and son like it with white rice and mac salad. Their pies are also really killer. You go for the food or to get some local color. I like to pick it up and take it to... More
