Description: We are a full service Bakery Cafe. Different from most due to being on this small island of Kauai,Hi. Our cafe serves both breakfast and lunch with a variety of baked goods. We also serve the health food stores, restaurants and hotel industry out of the same building. While we serve you breakfast or lunch we will be packing breads which are getting ready to be delivered to our wholesale customers. So both retail and wholesale out of the same location. We have an open kitchen so you can watch out staff at work. Also, we are roasting our own beef for our sandwiches which are covered with a house made dry rub, we also make our own pastrami using the short ribs which are perfectly marbled with good fat. We brine the short ribs for 7 days, smoke using pecan wood for 4 hours then slow cooked for 48 hours using a sous de vide technic. Come and try one of our sandwiches.

We stopped here because it was convenient and boy, were we in for a surprise! Their pulled pork sandwich was so good, I couldn't let my husband miss out, so I had to share half. I'm not a pork fan but this was the bomb! Their breads and bakery items are fabulous also but this sandwich is worth going back... More

The egg sandwiches and breakfast plate are delicious. The brioche and whole wheat toast were fresh and yummy. Great breakfast food! Tip: it's not a fast food place, so be prepared to relax a bit while they make your breakfast.

When you are visiting Passion Bakery, order anything that they baked. All pastries are fantastic. The prices were well worth it

'Oh no' is b/c we are staying just across the street from this bakery/cafe and the temptation to have one macadamia nut + caramel topped bun every day is unbearable! They also have excellent coffee, We like their americanos! The breakwiches are reasonably priced under $8.00 (except the vegetarian one) and very tasty. Not sure how the eggs were prepared... More

This place is primarily a wholesale bakery. Bakers are turning out tons of bread loaves, rolls, buns desserts and pastries by hand for area restaurants and hotels... so the smell is incredible! But service at the counter was quick and friendly, friendly cool people working there. Great coffees, tasty pastry options, and good eggs, bacon and sausage. We sat outside... More

We came here two years ago and could hardly wait to get back, but it wasn't the same this time. Little touches like coffee ice cubes in the iced coffee are gone, and service wasn't particularly friendly. Still, the food is good. Yummy, yummy muffins and cookies - we ate far too many. Some outdoor seating, but we preferred to... More

Delicious baked goods made fresh daily. There were several gluten free options...the one I would highly recommend was the cinnamon pecan coffee cake. It was a perfect location to grab a coffee and pastry and head down to the beach to enjoy for a peaceful morning.
