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.

Went to passion bakery and they were out of th guava muffin. It's actually a guava cream cheese muffin, so for those that don't eat dairy you are out of luck. The coffee was good and I got the oatmeal muffin. It was tasty but a little dry. House coffee was also fine. I will look for other options but... More

The bakery treats are delicious, soft and baked just right, without being too sweet. They are worth the prices. Enjoy your treat at one of the tables in the small courtyard; the small area of the bakery is too hot to enjoy. Air conditioning may be coming soon. In the meantime, enjoy the delicious treats outdoors.

We came here with our four cooped-up, jetlagged, young kids. Owner was really nice and said he'd make modifications to menu items for the kids. Food was delicious - from the baked goods to the sandwiches. We were headed to Lydgate Beach as well as to Kamalani Playground so took food to go. Some seating inside as well as a... More

The Lady didn't seem at all interested in serving us and more busy complaining. We ended not ordering much to get out as soon as we could.

This bakery was across the street from our condo at Wailua Bay View. We visited one morning for breakfast and anjoyed their ham, egg and cheese sandwiches. The restaurant is enclosed so you don't get a side of (live) chicken with your meal, which is nice. There was also outside tables if you liked. It was no more pricey than... More

My wife read about this bakery in some brochure. It was right across the street from our rental condo. It has unreasonably high prices. $5 for what they call a “sticky bun”. Just a cinnamon roll with nuts on it. I would not recommend them. Go to Safeway and get bakery there. They had a whole pan of the same... More

I had breakfast here every day of my vacation. The friendly staff prepares perfectly brewed coffee and out of this world fresh baked rolls for your breakfast sandwich. For lunch the iced coffee, sandwiches and pastries are so delicious. I dream about this place. :) Definitely not to be missed on your vacation in Kauai.

Well, maybe not die, but certainly to make a trip for. Especially the macadamia nut sticky buns. There is a nice little seating area to have coffee and at least one pastry to have before you leave the shop. This is right across the street from Wailua Bay View condos so we made it a regular trip for breakfast.

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.
